In 1990, the Netherlands published a Government Decision known as the Tweede Structuurschema Verkeer en Vervoer SVV, or Second Transport Structure Plan, which was a statement of the countrys long-term traffic and transport policy. It describes the problems that have been brought about by the ever increasing mobility of its population e.g., decreasing accessibility of economic centers worsening pollution and road safety, some goals and targets that the Dutch government would like to achieve to improve the situation, and a wide range of actions to be taken to achieve those targets. The project reported on here is a first step in carrying out a full-scale policy evaluation of the SVV. Its purpose was to develop a methodology that might explain which SVV actions which we call tactics caused what effects which we call impacts, and to demonstrate that methodology on a subset of the SVV. Although few SVV tactics have been implemented so far, it was expected that the methodology developed in the project would be useful for a more complete evaluation of the SVV at a later. Therefore, the project had three primary objectives 1 To design a policy evaluation methodology 2 To demonstrate the methodology on a subset of the SVV tactics and 3 To document the methodology so that it can be applied more broadly at some future time.
