Abstract

This paper examines the system and manuals for transportation project evaluation, which are recently introduced for all transportation modes, road, railway, airport and seaport projects in Japan. The manuals aim to evaluate the social significance of projects from the viewpoint of efficiency and equity, by applying a sort of multi-criterion analysis, although adopting the cost benefit analysis as a basic method to evaluate social efficiency. Result of the review shows that there are several inconsistent points among the key components of the evaluation procedures, such as demand forecasting, value of time, environmental aspects, and regional development effects, among others. The existence of these inconsistencies reveals the difficulty of developing a common evaluation framework for multi-modal applications.
