  3. 1. Introduction: a new HST regional service Big cities to a medium distance (competition with airplane) HST serves to joint Medium-sized cities with a big city in a short distance (competition with car) • Examples: • Le Mans-Paris • Ciudad Real-Puertollano-Madrid • Eskilstuna-Stokcholm • Dunkerque-Calais-Boulogne-Lille • Aix-la-Chapelle-Brussels AESOP Conference HST and polycentric regional development of Catalonia Jaume Feliu, Unitat de Geografia, University of Girona

  6. 2. High-Speed Train (HST) and urban and regional development The question: how can affect new regional service to the urban system? In the short term: major mobility of persons and activity In the long term: major urban integration? Polycentrism? From a deterministic paradigm to a systemic paradigm: We consider city as a Local Territorial System (SLoT) AESOP Conference HST and polycentric regional development of Catalonia Jaume Feliu, Unitat de Geografia, University of Girona

  7. 2. High-Speed Train (HST) and urban and regional development • To survey long term trends in Catalan urban system: • Pre-existing trends • Existing resources • Capacity of organisation AESOP Conference HST and polycentric regional development of Catalonia Jaume Feliu, Unitat de Geografia, University of Girona
