***************************************** Los congresos del World Conference on Transport Research Society, son de reconocido prestigio internacional dentro del campo de la investigación del transporte, pero desde 2010 los libros de abstracts ya no tienen ISBN. Pero por su importancia deberían ser tenidos en cuenta en los indicadores de calidad. ******************************************************************* This paper addresses the economic impact assessment of the construction of a new road on the regional distribution of jobs. The paper summarizes different existing model approaches considered to assess economic impacts through a literature review. Afterwards, we present the development of a comprehensive approach for analyzing the interaction of transport infrastructure and the economic impact through an integrated model. This model has been applied to the construction of the motorway A-40 in Spain (497 Km.) which runs across three regions without passing though Madrid City. This may in turn lead to the relocation of labor and capital due to the improvement of accessibility of markets. The case study suggests the existence of direct and indirect effects in regions derived from the improvement of the transportation infrastructure, and confirms the relevance of road freight transport in some regions. We found that the changes in regional employment are substantial for some regions (increasing or decreasing jobs), but at the same time negligible in other regions. As a result, the approach provides broad guidance to national governments and other transport-related parties about the impacts of this transport policy.
