For the Rotterdam Vooruit project, KiM assessed whether the Redesign Brien North and Alger Corridor (HBAC) quick scan satisfactorily identified the social welfare effects, in order to allow for the most promising solutions to be selected.
The conclusion: the quick scan conducted for this stage of the study provided a first impression of the social welfare effects of the various packages of measures. The findings are useful for selecting the most promising measures. The analysis of individual measures in particular offered valuable information to design an optimum package of measures in the next stage.
The Welfare Effects Quick scan is therefore a proper first step towards an OEI (Overview Effects of Infrastructure), which must be set up at the conclusion of the exploratory study in order to facilitate the preference decision stage. In setting up an OEI, we recommend using scenarios and sensitivity analysis in order to identify uncertainties and risks. We also recommend studying how and when to make adjustments if risks occur.
These findings stem from the KiM Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis’ report on the Quick scan social welfare effects: Redesign Brienenoord and Algera Corridor (HBAC).
