The Department uses the Transport Appraisal Guidance (available at: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/transport-analysis-guidance-webtag) to determine the value-for-money of railway lines. This guidance is consistent with the HM Treasury guidance for use across central Government on the appraisal of policies, projects and programmes: the Green Book (available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/the-green-book-appraisal-and-evaluation-in-central-governent).
