The cost benefit analysis (CBA) would seem to be an attractive assessment tool for planning and evaluating transport (or other kinds of) plans. Since 2007, a CBA is obligatory within the Netherlands for infrastructural and spatial plans that require national funding. The CBA is also, however, a controversial tool, especially when assessing complex spatial transport plans that aim to influence fundamental but hard to grasp aspects of societal challenges such as sustainability or quality of life, which resist easy translation into monetisable pieces. Els Beukers focuses on CBA processes in processing and assessing integrated spatial transport plans in the Netherlands. She also identifies ways to improve the process issues at play.
