CBA of Cycling

image of CBA of Cycling

Investing in infrastructure for cycling has a number of effects often not included in ordinary Cost Benefit Analysis, CBA, for roads. It is therefore likely that special methods are needed to conduct CBA for cycling. In February 2005 a Nordic seminar was held in Stockholm. The purpose of the seminar was to share and discuss these Nordic experiences in order to reach a common understanding and platform for further work. The current report summarises the knowledge of CBA of cycling in the Nordic countries and discusses the policy relevance of more advanced methods for cycle infrastructure planning. The report has been compiled by Gunnar Lind.

Methods for CBA of cycling

Cost–benefit analyses (CBAs) are used to assess the impacts of road investment projects in Norway and many other countries. However, such analyses are not used to assess the impacts of measures designed to improve the safety and/or mobility of pedestrians and cyclists. The reason for this might be that important impacts such as insecurity and health effects are very difficult to make an adequate monetary valuation of and that the results of such CBAs therefore will be uncertain.
