CATRIN is a research project to support the European Transport Policy, specifically to assist in the implementation of transport pricing. CATRIN will increase the probability that new progressive pricing principles can be implemented which facilitate a move towards sustainable transport. CATRIN is both intermodal and interdisciplinary, emphasizes the needs of new member states, understands that different organizational forms require different recommendations, that recommendations need to be given in the short- and long-term perspective and that they have to be thoroughly discussed with infrastructure managers. This deliverable is dedicated to the area of the third work package of CATRIN covering new member states' policy and implementation problems as well as data availability. The objective of this deliverable is to review data sources and information available in new member states which can be used for cost allocation studies. It concerns both a survey of existing case studies and results of different research projects as well as review and presentation of data available in national and international statistical institutions. As a result of this study country sheets including current datasets have also been attached to this deliverable. Datasets correspond to the structure of modal chapters
