CENTRAL RAILWAY LINE, COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS

ZENTRALES WENDEGLEIS, NUTZWERTANALYSE

TAKING THE CASE OF THE INSTALLATION OF A CENTRAL RAILWAY LINE, THE USE OF COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS IS DEMONSTRATED. WHILST THE ESTIMATE OF THE PLANT NECESSARY WAS CARRIED OUT BY EXPERTS, CITIZENS, POLITICIANS AND REPRESENTATIVES OF INTERESTED PARTIES WERE CALLED IN FOR THE SELECTION AND EVALUATION OF THE TARGET CRITERIA IN THE CONTEXT OF "PUBLIC PLANNING". BECAUSE OF THE CLOSE CONTACT FORMED BETWEEN ALL THE PARTIES TAKING PART, A STRONG CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE PROBLEM WAS DEVELOPED SO THAT A COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS WAS FOUND TO BE, IN ADDITION TO ITS FUNCTION TO AN AID TO DECISION TAKING, A USEFUL MODEL FOR THE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION. THE RESULTS OF THE COST BENEFIT ANALYSIS ARE TESTED BY MEANS OF A SENSITIVITY ANALYSIS WITH REGARD TO ITS PREDICTED SIGNIFICANCE.
