Transport infrastructure generally adds capacity of a specific type and at a large scale. Local investments redevelop what is already in place making them harder to evaluate. Active travel such as cycling and walking has other benefits than standard economic measures. And such short trips are harder to measure effectively, meaning data are more difficult to work with. In London, such investments have been given enough priority that forecasting models and formal evaluations are used. This meeting will show how these are being used in London and some lessons for the local active approach to transport investment.
