What Are The Research Gaps?

The aim of this chapter was to review the objectives of Road Pricing and to confirm that the scope of the analysis of CURACAO takes into account both fundamental and newly-arising objectives. Results from the UNAQ confirm that all current objectives have been identified.
There is a case for continuing to monitor the objectives of concern to cities and their relative importance, so that any emerging objectives are effectively addressed in the guidance given.  However, the principal requirement is to obtain additional evidence on the problems associated with some of the less frequently addressed objectives such as health and the economy.
Less is known about the principles of strategy design, as outlined in Section 2.5. Further research is needed into the performance of such integrated strategies and the way in which effective combinations of strategy elements can be determined.
