The border areas are peripheral territories in the context of the countries where they are located and traditionally they are less dynamic in socioeconomic terms. Under the Trans-European Transport Networks program and funding’s, some of them have been benefiting from new transport infrastructures, particularly roads, with a substantial gain in accessibility. This paper aims to analyze the impact brought by these infrastructures in the spatial development of border areas, between Portugal and Spain. The methodology includes the development of a Spatial Regression Analysis process between variables that reflect accessibility and variables that reflect local development. The geographical unit used is the municipality. The Spatial Regression Analysis includes evaluation of spatial behavior for some variables, the so called Spatial Autocorrelation Analysis, or LISA maps. This step is essential to analyse in these areas, at a municipal level, the spatial behavior with statistical significance of relevant variables to include in Spatial Regressions, including accessibility. In this study there is an effect of border with statistical significance, related with how the variables values are distributed geographically and how they relate to each other. Therefore it is possible to see that the location is a factor to consider in this analysis and that Spatial Regression represents a good approach for studying border areas.[/vc_column_text][vc_text_separator title=”Keywords” title_align=”separator_align_left” align=”align_center” color=”grey” style=”” border_width=”” el_width=””][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Accessibility” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Border regions” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Highway transportation” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Regional development” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Regression analysis” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”” width=”1/6″][vc_btn title=”Spatial analysis” style=”modern” shape=”rounded” color=”grey” size=”xs” align=”center” i_align=”left” i_type=”fontawesome” i_icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-adjust” i_icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” i_icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” i_icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” i_icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” button_block=”true” add_icon=”” i_icon_pixelicons=”vc_pixel_icon vc_pixel_icon-alert”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_text_separator title=”Download” title_align=”separator_align_left” align=”align_center” color=”grey”][vc_icon type=”fontawesome” icon_fontawesome=”fa fa-download” icon_openiconic=”vc-oi vc-oi-dial” icon_typicons=”typcn typcn-adjust-brightness” icon_entypo=”entypo-icon entypo-icon-note” icon_linecons=”vc_li vc_li-heart” color=”custom” background_color=”grey” size=”xl” align=”left” custom_color=”#c44044″ link=”url:https%3A%2F%2Ftrid.trb.org%2Fview.aspx%3Fid%3D1338301||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][vc_text_separator title=”First Author” title_align=”separator_align_center” align=”align_center” color=”custom” accent_color=”#c44044″][vc_column_text]
