Why are we spending enormous amounts of money on projects that our own transport agencies calculate as barely worth it – while ignoring the most promising projects already on the books?

Could one of the reasons be that some of the best-performing ones are cycling projects, despite being measured with tools designed primarily to calculate economic benefits of new roads?
