In this three part blog, I argue that risks to benefits realisation from outside the direct scope of the programme have particular importance for many large, long-term initiatives, and yet may be under prioritised. The Channel Tunnel, which opened in 1994, failed to ever get close to averaging 20 million travellers a year as it had projected. Even before the first train had passed through the tunnel, EU aviation regulations had been revised to allow easier access to European airspace, triggering a boom in low-cost airlines and drawing customers away in droves.
