The EUNET 4th Framework research project takes forwards and develops work begun by the EURET and APAS research programmes, whose common theme was to propose consistent evaluation principles and methods across member states in areas such as new road construction, rail infrastructure and inter-modal terminals (eg. ports and airports). The assessment task of multi-modal transport is the main topic of the paper. Specifically, the paper describes a combined cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and multi-criteria analysis (MCA) approach, which provides decision-makers with information on the economic and environmental benefits of projects, and allows them to explore alternative weightings of the various criteria - including wider policy variables - which they identify as relevant to their decision.
