Treatment of Pedestrian and Non-motorized Traffic


This Note considers the impact of transport investment on pedestrians and non-motorised transport. The inclusion of benefits to pedestrians and NMTs can form a significant proportion of the total scheme benefits for investments such as low volume rural roads, and the note looks at how any benefits can be quantified and evaluated. Section 1 sets out the treatment of operating costs for pedestrian and NMTs, whilst Section 2 describes the treatment of travel time savings and Section 3 accidents. Section 4 presents a summary of the main points of this note.
