THE EVALUATION IS DIVIDED INTO FOUR PHASES: DEVELOPMENT OF THE TECHNICAL DATA FOR A RAIL RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM, ESTIMATION OF TRAFFIC DEMAND IN THE NINETIES, DETERMINATION OF THE ECOLOGICAL, REGIONAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL EFFECTS, AND EVALUATION OF THESE EFFECTS BY MEANS OF A COMPREHENSIVE CATALOGUE OF CRITERIA RELATING TO THOSE AFFECTED BY THESE SYSTEMS. IT IS SHOWN THAT THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS RELATED TO ENVIRONMENTAL AND REGIONAL CRITERIA AND THE POSITIVE EFFECTS TO SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CRITERIA.
