Success and failure in urban transport infrastructure projects 

With cities around the globe expected to experience significant growth over coming decades, it is more important than ever that the transport infrastructure underpinning them be delivered successfully and sustainably. Yet past projects show that implementation is patchy, as some projects have become beacons of effective transport provision within their cities while other projects become notorious examples of project failure.

This white paper discusses six factors by assessing their influence in 19 case studies. The six key factors explored are: project planning, technical expertise, procurement and financing, operational organization, political control, and sponsorship.

The report explores findings from nineteeen urban transport case studies from countries around the world, including New York, London, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dublin, Bogota, Manila, Manchester, and Bangkok.
