The term 'economies of agglomeration' is used in urban economics to describe the benefits firms obtain by locating near one another; it is likened to ‘economies of scale’.  In this lecture, Cameron Gordon will describe difficulties associated with applying traditional valuation techniques to multi-region transport infrastructure projects and further relay the prospects for high speed rail between Brisbane and Melbourne.
