What sort of benefits are we looking at?
In this project, we are asking “What sort of road transport infrastructure would optimise overall health, economic and social benefits?”
We want to explore if the current definition of the economic benefits of transport infrastructure are appropriate. To do this, we will take into account a broad set of considerations that go beyond the way we currently look at economic benefits.
For the people of Mãngere the benefits they might expect include:
- Improved road safety
- Improved air quality
- Better infrastructure for walking and cycling to school
- Improvements in health through more transport and recreation activity in the neighbourhood
