Part 7 provides guidelines for carrying out evaluation of completed transport projects to assess actual performance against stated objectives. A post-completion evaluation is the final step in project evaluation, and provides feedback on evaluation methodologies, efficiency of implementation and how effectively the project met its objectives. It closes the guidelines body of the guide to project evaluation (before the examples and applications are presented in Part 8) thus making the Austroads Guide to Project Evaluation a dynamic system of evaluation methods.
