COBA, CONTRAM and TRAFFICQ are three programs used to estimate future traffic conditions consequent upon changes to a road network. The study reported here is an initial examination of their applicability to the economic appraisal of road improvement schemes in urban areas. COBA (COst Benefit Analysis) was developed specifically to undertake economic evaluations of road based infrastructure improvement schemes and is applicable to inter-urban and rural scheme assessments.

It is suitable for fixed trip matrix (FTM) analysis only and is therefore generally restricted to 'simple' scheme assessments. COBA. COBA (COst Benefit Analysis) estimates the effects of highway improvements in terms of travel time, vehicle operating and accident costs on users of the road user cost changes are monetised along with changes in indirect tax revenues and carbon dioxide emissions.

The changes in costs are then compared with the construction and maintenance costs over the appraisal period. Although the model is used for all new road schemes and schemes can be ranked in order according to their net social benefit – there are some drawbacks to using COBA: 1.

It is a user based method of appraisal i.e. it estimates the monetary benefits to users of a new road but does not cover the full social benefits that may arise e.g. a town. Economic appraisal of transport projects: a manual with case studies (English) Abstract.
