Introduction

This chapter introduces the important topic of appraisal of road pricing systems. Appraisal is defined as work carried out in advance of implementing a policy of any kind, such as a road pricing scheme, in order to quantify and assess its expected impacts. Appraisal helps guide the decision on whether to implement the scheme and whether to make changes to the design of the road pricing scheme.

In this report we draw a distinction between appraisal, which is conducted before implementation, and evaluation, which is work carried out after implementation to find out what the actual impacts of the policy have been. Evaluation is covered in Chapter 15.
