Strategic Transport Infrastructure Needs to 2030

Transcontinental Infrastructure Needs to 2030/50 explores the long-term opportunities and challenges facing major gateway and transport hub infrastructures --  ports, airports and major rail corridors – in the coming decades.  The report uses projections and scenarios to assess the broader economic outlook and future infrastructure requirements, and examines the options for financing these, not least against the backdrop of the economic recession and financial crisis which have significantly modified the risks and potential rewards associated with major infrastructure projects.  Building on numerous in-depth case studies from Europe, North America and Asia, the report offers insights into the economic prospects for these key facilities and identifies policy options for improved gateway and corridor infrastructure in the future.



Infrastructure financing

Private sector involvement

Private-sector financing can help deliver the equity and debt financing needed to make the infrastructure project operational. Private sector involvement can also help manage the transition to “user pays” and increased self-financing of future investments. Pension funds and private infrastructure funds are potential investors in the gateways and their infrastructure investments. However, they need access to good-quality projects with riskreward balances consistent with their responsibilities to pension and infrastructure fund contributors. Debt-financing models – and guidelines – are discussed.
