Abstract

Many countries in the world are implementing a database (“DB”) through routine national transport surveys to make effective investments in transport infrastructure and establish transport policies. In Korea, the Transport Investment Evaluation Program was used as a basis for determining the validity of investment projects, but remained little more than a name until the 1990s due to the lack of investment funds for transport infrastructure. After 1999, however, policies for supplying transport infrastructure were planned and executed at excessive amounts, which raised concerns about potential overinvestment in the absence of improvements in relevant systems and institutions. This brought about a strong necessity for collecting and analyzing standardized and systematic preliminary data. In this regard, the Korean government introduced the National Transport Demand Survey and DB Construction Project in the Integrated Transport System Efficiency Act, a law of the highest authority in transport, which institutionalized the project. The project was initiated in 1999 at the central government level (the Ministry and Land, Transport, and Maritime Affairs) and the DB Construction Project is being conducted by the Korea Transport Institute as a government agency.
