IntroductionEvaluation and monitoring are “ex-post” activities, which are defined as work carried out after implementation to find out what the actual impacts and effectiveness of the policy have been. Evaluation studies add to the body of literature available to improve our ability to predict and appraise future schemes.
Monitoring involves the regular collection of specified data which tracks changes in behaviour, traffic and system performance.
Evaluation is the process of assessing, using data from the monitoring process after a policy such as road pricing has been implemented, whether it was successful in meeting the objectives set for it. It is common for this step in the policy cycle to be overlooked. Politicians may understandably take the view that, once a scheme has been introduced and broadly accepted, it is better to move on to the next policy challenge than to spend time and resources checking in detail how well it worked.
