The business case approach allows a flexible approach to activity development and consideration of a wide range of alternatives, including the potential transfer of solutions to a non-transport stakeholder.
For example, a business case developed to address a transport problem may identify improvements to bylaws, land use policy or contributing factors, such as radio reception, provides the most effective solution. The business case may then be used to support these changes, even though they are not eligible for funding from the NLTF.
Equally, a non-transport business case may identify that the best solution involves transport improvements. In this instance, the transport investment may be justified through transfer of the existing business case.
