Abstract [en]

We study factors affecting the choice of projects to be included in the National Transport Infrastructure Plan for 2010-2021 in Sweden, controlling for the CBA results. The centre-right government tended to favour those counties that voted for it, and favour rail investments over road. We find no discrimination against the large cities of Gothenburg, Malmö and Stockholm. Finally, lobbying also matters; projects with co-financing from the local municipality(ies) have a greater probability of being included in the Plan. Industry lobbying has, at best, a borderline significant effect, and affects the probability of a project being included in the Plan positively.
