This dissertation focusses on the Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA) processes when assessing integrated spatial transport plans, using the Netherlands as a case in point. It answers the following research question: What process issues occur when assessing integrated spatial transport plans through a CBA in the Netherlands, and how can the CBA process be improved?
Providing insight into CBA process issues and identifying ways to improve on them, increases the relevance of this research for practice. One such improvement was found in using the CBA for learning purposes, instead of solely as a final assessment. Furthermore, five clear interventions were articulated, providing a toolkit with which to build communication and trust between plan owners and evaluators.
