Abstract

In recent decades, many authors have claimed that, compared to traditional appraisal techniques such as cost-benefit analysis (CBA), participatory multi-criteria analysis (MCA) methodologies represent a more effective approach to appraising transport projects, largely due to the range of criteria able to be used and the ability to reflect multiple viewpoints. This paper applies a participatory MCA process to appraise potential rail investments in North West England. The results of this analysis show that, while promising, participatory MCA processes also have several limitations, and successful application is subject to several issues which require careful consideration, including selection of participants, identification of appraisal criteria, and the process of assessing impacts.
