RUCL: A ROAD USER COST PROGRAM FOR LONDON

RUCL is a computer program to determine the present worth of road user costs for roads and road schemes in London. It is similar in purpose to the Department of the Environment's program COBA, the use of which is now mandatory in the evaluation of major non-urban road schemes, but rucl is designed specifically for urban roads and urban traffic conditions, for which COBA is unsuitable. RUCL will assist the technician to (I) identify roads for improvement, (II) select the best design from among a number of alternative proposals for one project, and (III) to determine priorities. At a higher level the rucl program will provide a basis for determining the road budget and/or the successful road projects. Because the program values occupants' costs it will be useful in studies involving public transport, and improve the technician's contribution to community decision making on road projects. /TRRL/
