The Migration Advisory Committee (MAC) commissioned RAND Europe to to gather evidence on how economic migrants from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) are likely to affect the UK’s transport networks and congestion.
This study included two research phases.
- a review of literature on the impact of migration on the transport networks and congestion levels in the UK
- analyses of the impact of migration from inside and outside the EEA on the transport networks and congestion levels in the UK.
This final report consolidated the evidence collected and provided some conclusions on migrants’ travel behaviour, and their likely impacts.
Limitations to analysis and how they might have been overcome were also discussed.
