Benefit Cost Ratios (BCRs) exist for the vast majority of all current Highways Agency minor schemes under development. This is because the Highways Agency seeks to deliver best value for money and maximise the return on their investments across all programmes of work.

However, some schemes are classed as non-appraisable or have benefits that cannot be monetised. In these cases it is not possible to calculate a BCR.
