TRANSPORT ENGINEERING ECONOMICS
Transportation is essential to trade and to the normal requirements of modern life, but we have reached a stage where people suspect that the penalties of new transport systems exceed their potential benefits. Here, therefore, is a book which will help the professional transport planner to evaluate and reconcile the conflicting engineering, social, and economic characteristics of each planning decision. This is not simply another treatise about cost-benefit analysis; it provides a comprehensive means of evaluating engineering projects for all kinds of transport and will thus help to bridge the gap between engineering and economics. It provides a synthesis of the existing theory on this complex subject.
