Abstract [sv]

In the cost benefit analysis carried out when an investment in infrastructure

is to be made environmental effects such as the encroachment of the

investment and its effect on the landscape/townscape are not valued in

monetary terms. In earlier studies VTI has shown that this could cause

serious misdirection of the investments. In this report several case studies

in the classification "barrier against water" are presented. The willingness

of individuals to pay to avoid the barrier against water that an

infrastructure investment can mean is sought with binary Contingent Valuation

Method (CVM).We analyse the results and describe how a calculation model can

be constructed. We have found that the people living near the barrier are

disturbed in proportion to the distance between the residence and the

barrier. For the rest of the town's inhabitants the valuation of getting rid

of the barrier depends on how often they visit the area next to the barrier.

With this report we have achieved an important sub-goal. A few additional

case studies are necessary to be able to develop a complete calculation model

for the type case "barrier against water".
