TECHNIQUES OF TRANSPORT PLANNING VOLUME 1. PRICING AND PROJECT EVALUATION

TO SHED LIGHT ON PLANNING PROBLEMS AND TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF INVESTMENT DECISIONS, THE AUTHORS COMBINE THE THEORIES OF TRANSPORT PRICING, WELFARE ECONOMICS, AND BENEFIT-COST ANALYSIS, AND SURVEY THE LITERATURE OF TRANSPORT PLANNING AS IT APPLIES TO PROJECTS. USING A SINGLE PROJECT AS A FRAME OF REFERENCE, AN ANALYSIS IS PRESENTED OF THE SPECIAL PROBLEMS OF EVALUATING LARGE INVESTMENTS IN TRANSPORT FACILITIES. A SYSTEMATIC DECISION-MAKING PROCEDURE IS DEVELOPED THAT ACCOUNTS FOR SOCIAL AS WELL AS ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS. /TRRL/
