This report sets out several recent advances and describes efforts to improve the quality of Transport Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) and its applicability to decision-making.
This report from PwC, with research by Oxford Economics, analyses and projects capital project and infrastructure spending across the globe.
It addresses the growing worldwide interest in the use of light rail metro transit (LRMT) schemes to provide urban transport solutions and reviews the potential use of public-private partnership (PPP).
The core principle behind the PPP is the creation of a contractual bubble – a framework of contracts.
The IRF World Road Statistics (WRS) continue to be the only comprehensive, universal source of statistical data on road networks, traffic and inland transport.
Over the last decade, much has been written about globalisation and how we’re more connected than ever before. In the infrastructure world, we think of connectivity as the “linkages of communities, economies and nations through transport, communications, energy, and water networks across a number of countries” .
Large-scale port projects have big impacts on the local economy and affect the way that the regional and national economy operates, with major implications for investment in regional transport systems.
The data presented in this report show that progress has been achieved in important areas such as legislation, vehicle standards and improving access to post-crash care. This progress has not, however, occurred at a pace fast enough to compensate for the rising population and rapid motorization of transport taking place in many parts of the world.
The purpose of these principles is to help government work with private sector partners to finance and bring to fruition projects in areas of vital economic importance, such as transport, water and power supply and telecommunications.

As outlined earlier in this blog series, private investors are looking for reliable returns to justify the risks that they are taking. Financing and procurement of cross-border projects will often be more complex than national projects due to the scale of the project and compounded risks, and the financial returns may be more uncertain than for national projects.
Risks can be hard to define, manage and mitigate. In infrastructure projects that cross regional or national borders and involve multiple parties from both the public and private sector, these risks may be amplified.
