Post Opening Project Evaluation (POPE) of Local Network Management Schemes (LNMS)

The Highways Agency undertakes reviews of smaller road improvement schemes to measure impact against forecast.


  1. Documents

POPE LNMS reports are produced ‘1 year after’ the opening of a road scheme.

Large LNMS reports contain the detailed results for each evaluated LNMS which cost more than £1m to build. There is also a map showing all evaluated large LNMS schemes.

The POPE LNMS Annual Evaluation Report, containing the results of a meta-analysis of all scheme evaluations to date, is published each year. This highlights any interesting or emerging trends.

Older reports are available on The National Archives website.
