Beräkningsmodell för infrastrukturinvesteringars intrångskostnader
2002 (Swedish)Report (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
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".
