What Are The Policy Implications?

Appraisal is an essential step in policy development, in that it provides evidence on whether a scheme is worth pursuing, and on whether it can be enhanced. Appraisal needs to be based on the objectives (and any constraints) specified by the city for its overall transport strategy and for urban road user charging specifically.

As noted in Table 11 1 , performance is more difficult to appraise against some objectives than others. Care is needed to ensure that this does not result in those objectives being overlooked in the appraisal process.
