Infrastructure needs all over the world are still sorely deficient due to a strong lack of public funding and political will. Governments are constantly looking for ways to develop their road networks and other mobility options to meet their citizen’s economic, political, and social needs. The scarcity of public resources has highlighted the application of new models for the financing and management of toll roads. One of those highly successful models is using private finance via the concession model. In Europe, more than 50,000 km have been built thanks to this model. It has also allowed development of a strong motorway network in Japan, South America (Brazil, Chile, Colombia) and South Africa. And most recently, the model has been applied in the United States. Using the concession model as a financing tool, has proven to work for designing, financing, building, and managing new infrastructure. It has also been applied to upgrading and maintaining existing infrastructure. No two projects are the same. So, the goal of this Webinar will be to scan the globe to demonstrate the value that the Concession Model brings to financing successful and unique transportation infrastructure projects.
