Evaluation methodologies for transport projects in the United Kingdom
AbstractThis paper reviews the basic methodology for the evaluation of transport projects in the UK and explains the changes currently being undertaken. The paper identifies the key elements as a very rigorous economic evaluation of direct user benefits, but rather less progress on the evaluation of environmental or wider economic effects. Changes are currently being made to develop a common framework for multi-modal applications.
