|Abstract: ||Motorways in Portugal received large scale funding
after the country joined the European Union in 1986,
making it an ideal case to study the effect of road
accessibility on the development of lagging rural areas.
We investigate the relationship between rural population
change and road accessibility to the urban
hierarchy between 1991 and 2011. We find that rural
population growth is negatively associated with
increased road distance and travel time to cities, notably
to medium‐sized cities (20,000–99,999 inhabitants).
There is no evidence of nonlinearities in the effect of
proximity to the urban hierarchy between accessible
and remote rural areas.|
