WSP and RAND Europe were commissioned by the Department for Transport (DfT) to undertake a literature review of the evidence on two key analytical questions that will inform the development of the second Road Investment Strategy 2 (RIS2) covering investment in the English strategic road network between 2020 and 2025.
The evidence from the literature review on induced demand is presented in this report. The implications of the evidence for economic appraisal of transport projects are also discussed. Evidence on traffic growth trends is presented in a separate report.
