Abstract

The paper uses the example of the third runway at Sydney's Kingsford Smith Airport to
examine the application of cost benefit analysis to transport projects. The issues covered
include using logframe analysis to define the project, selecting a discount rate to
aggregate values over long time periods, valuation of impacts, using sensitivity analysis
to communicate uncertainty, and treatment of distributional impacts.
