Details

This study looks at the links between appraisal and evaluation for transport schemes in order to understand why these links are currently weak and to identify how they can be strengthened in future. The study draws on case studies, expert interviews and new analysis. It provides recommendations for how forward planning of evaluation can be embedded at the appraisal or business case stage and how evaluations can be designed so that they can inform appraisals.
