ROLE OF EVALUATION INDICATORS IN TRANSPORT PLANNING

This paper summarises recent changes in responsibilities for transport planning in the United Kingdom and analyses their implications for evaluation techniques. Characteristics which indicators should possess are discussed and advantages and limitations of different evaluation methods for selecting and testing indicators are analysed. It is concluded that both land use/transportation models and detailed social cost-benefit studies have severe limitations in this respect and a new approach -- a corridor model -- is described. Empirical tests with this model demonstrate that selection of indicators will not be simple.
