The literature clearly implies that the HSR is not a magic wand. Since it may potentially redistribute growth spatially rather than generate it, the level of a city’s public capital investment and the quality of its urban planning become very important in realizing positive outcomes. For station-area development to take off, both the node and place qualities of a station should be considered. The literature also touts the importance of selection of a central-city location for the station and the development of detailed and integrated local land use and transportation plans. Ensuring a good level-of-service and connecting the station through different transportation modes also enhances the possibility that private investment would be attracted to the station-area. In the end, HSR’s effect on economic and urban development can be characterized as analogous to a fertilizer’s effect on crop growth: it is one ingredient that could stimulate economic growth, but other ingredients must also be present.
Nada revolucionario y que no se haya dicho antes en otros sitios (a fin de cuentas es un meta-estudio) pero bastante bien explicado y aplicable a cualquier gran inversión publica.
El resto del texto es muy accesible y recomendable para cualquiera interesado en politicas publicas de infraestructuras o de desarrollo.
