A Cost Benefit Analysis for the Extension Plan of Osaka Monorail Loop-line (in Japanese)
AbstractIn this paper, under the consideration on both local environmental status and transportation network, we implement Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) for the extension plan of Osaka Monorail Loop-line by applying a Choice Experiment (CE) method. It is estimated that the benefit cost (B/C) ratio is 1.35 under a basic scenario. In addition, with a consideration on different kinds of uncertainty in the future, a number of sensitivity analyses are implemented. The results of sensitivity analysis indicate that the possibility of generating net benefit is extremely high for the extension plan studied here.
