The estimates of the environmental benefits included in Table 8-5 were calculated in accordance with the Department for Transport’s (DfT’s) processes for appraising transport investments. The economic appraisal, including the environmental impacts reported in Table 8-5, was carried out using the DfT’s Transport Analysis Guidance, where environmental benefits (including noise, local air quality, and greenhouse gasses) are monetised and assessed over a 60 year appraisal period.
