INTEGRATED APPRAISAL FOR TRANSPORT - DELIVERING SUSTAINABILITY?

The purpose of this paper is to consider the effectiveness of the key issues explored and whether the new appraisal practices have led to more sustainable outcomes, the links between the introduction of sustainability concepts "up front" (e.g. appraisal processes) and in project delivery (e.g. design and construction technologies), whether wider benefits have accrued from changes to appraisal practices (e.g. achieving more transparency and public confidence; assisting positive institutional change), methodological developments (e.g. developments in monetarisation of impacts and the formalization of Strategic Environmental Assessment techniques), the shifting balance of influence between different parties involved in appraisal and decision making, the challenges of integration between transport planning and decision making tiers (i.e. from transport policies to plans/programmes to individual projects).
