Developing the Approaches to Transport Appraisal
5-7 P.M. 9 July 2015
Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre
Appraisal plays a critical role in prioritising investment in transport. The current approach, based on CBA and MCA (cost-benefit and multi-criteria analysis) has attracted criticism for, among other things, failing to properly take environmental and societal impacts into account.
This is the second of two UCL seminars bringing together national and international expertise to address the problem.
The seminar series will help to inform the work of UCL, as a lead partner in the EU INTERREG IVB SINTROPHER project which is considering the role of the transport appraisal process in funding public transport infrastructure in ‘peripheral’ urban areas.
Professor Peter Jones (Centre for Transport Studies, UCL)
- Professor David Metz, (Centre for Transport Studies, UCL): The Myth of Travel Time Savings
- Professor Steen Leleur (Technical University of Denmark): MCDA for Use in Transport Decision-Making: Combining CBA and MCA
- Professor Cathy Macharis (Vrije Universiteit Brussel): Multi-Actor Approaches to MCA
Attendance is free and all are welcome.
The seminar will be followed by a reception in the Wilkins South Cloisters from 7p.m.
