TRAFFIC AND ENVIRONMENT - CASH VALUES

The incentive for producing a cash value of the environmental impact of traffic is in order to compare it with travel benefits and scheme costs in common units. This paper describes some early work on a new method of assessing such a cash value. The method consists of assessing the value of a place to its residents and visitors by studying people's behavioural patterns in relation to property values and trip-making respectively. The visitors value is calculated using a transportation model. Several case studies are described illustrating both the beneficial effect of traffic relief and injurious effect of "new" traffic. /TRRL/
