Post Opening Project Evaluation (POPE) of Major Schemes

Highways England undertakes reviews on major road schemes to measure impact against forecast

Highways England produces Post Opening Project Evaluation (POPE) reports ‘1 year after’ and ‘5 years after’ following the opening of a road scheme.

An independent ‘meta report’ is published at 2 year intervals, taking an overview of all the evaluations to date. A scheme evaluation table shows the appraisal (predicted impact before construction) and evaluation (recalculated impact after opening) figures for all open schemes. This sets out figures for carbon emissions, traffic levels and accidents.

Older reports are available on The National Archives website.
