A Tale of Three Cities: Urban rail concessions in Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur and Manila

This study of MRT concessions policy is a background paper to a flagship study of infrastructure service provision in East Asia and the Pacific. It concerns the role of private concessions in developing urban MRT1 systems in East Asian cities. It is primarily founded on the experiences of Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok and Manila and the comparator cities London, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Public Private Partnership Models for Development of Sustainable Urban Transport Systems

Urban transport is a critical component of urban infrastructure and the lifeline of a city. A well- developed and planned transportation system is integral to the development of social activity and accelerates economic growth. With the burgeoning rate of population and expanding urbanization, requirement of urban transport infrastructure and associated funding needs are growing at rapid pace, resulting in an ever increasing gap between supply and demand.

Urban Aerial Cable Cars as Mass Transit Systems: Case studies, technical specifications, and business models

This is the first publication to offer a compendium of objective data on urban aerial transit projects in Latin America and elsewhere. The criteria used for the selection of the case studies were based on such factors as setting (urban), geographic location, technology, and management model. The specific criteria that were used are detailed below:

•All major monocable aerial cable car systems set entirely within urban areas of Central and South America, whether currently in operation or out of service.

Philippines: Urban Passenger Rail

Severe traffic congestion and environmental degradation characterize Metro Manila, particularly at the city center where high density development continues. Urban sprawl has spilled over onto surrounding provinces that are within daily commuting distance, with population in these areas now reaching 5 million. About 22.5 million motorized trips are made each day—70 percent of which are taken on public transportation.

L’autoroute à péage Dakar-Diamniadio au Sénégal: une opération pionnière appuyée par le PPIAF

En 2009, le Fonds de conseils en infrastructure publique-privée (PPIAF) a soutenu le gouvernement du Sénégal dans la réalisation du premier projet PPP d’autoroute à péage en Afrique de l’ouest. Ce projet est fondamental pour le développement de la région de Dakar qui concentre 80% de l’activité économique du pays et 25% de sa population. L’autoroute reliant Dakar à Diamniadio permet aujourd’hui à deux millions de Sénégalais, vivant à Dakar et dans les villes environnantes, de bénéfi cier d’avantages sociaux et économiques importants.

Urban Passenger Transport

As cities grow and traffic congestion increases, governments are looking increasingly for alternatives to encourage a shift from private to public transport. Light rail, tram and metro transit systems as well as bus rapid transit (BRT) projects are alternatives to carbon intense urban individual transport. This section provides information on public-private partnership (PPP) urban transport projects including links to PPP agreements and further reading materials.
