Evidence on Economic Growth Impacts of Transport

The Department for Transport invites tenders to support its Transport Appraisal and Strategic Modelling team in relation to the Assessment of Methods for Modelling and Appraisal of the Sub-National, Regional and Local Economic Impacts of Transport. DfT needs to ensure that the Department’s transport investment decisions are able to be informed by robust analysis of the impacts of transport schemes, including the impacts on the economy. The attached specification invites tenders for research that will inform the development by DfT of guidance on assessment of the sub-national, regional and local economy impacts of transport. The aim of this research will be to assess methods for the modelling and appraisal of the impacts to the economy of transport proposals, at sub-national, regional, and local, levels, and to provide detailed options for further work to develop the modelling and appraisal of these impacts. The focus of this research specification is on surface transport.
