Guide to project evaluation: part 4: project evaluation data

This project represents an update of the Austroads Guide to Project Evaluation: Part 4. It contains estimates of road user unit costs for use in Australia, calculated as at 30 June 2010. Estimates of the unit values for road user effects (RUE) are provided for vehicle operating costs (fuel prices, lubricating oil, tyre prices, vehicle prices and repairs and maintenance costs), travel time valuation, crash costs and environmental externalities costs. A number of enhancements in the methodologies have been undertaken in this project. This includes improvements in the coverage for lubricating oil and tyre prices, methodological reviews on the repairs and maintenance costs and review of the social costs of crashes in the light of recent developments by the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics, the Roads and Traffic Authority, and the Ministry of Transport New Zealand. The update of the unit values in this project provides an opportunity to remediate a number of gaps in the coverage and methodologies surrounding these unit values, which are intended to meet the needs of data users and transport analysts.
