Management and Financing of Roads: An Agenda for Reform -- Full text

Road transport is the dominant mode of transport in sub-Saharan Africa, carrying close to 90 percent of the region's passenger and freight transport, and providing the only access to rural communities where over 70 percent of Africans live. Despite their importance, most of the region's nearly 2 million km of roads are poorly managed and badly maintained. By 1990, nearly a third of the $150 billion invested in roads had been eroded through lack of maintenance.

Privately Financed Infrastructure -- A Concession Company’s Point of View

Under a concession system the state grants a franchise the right to finance, build, own, operate, and maintain a public infrastructure for a given period, and to charge users for that service. Concessions are normally stand-alone, single-purpose entities that are expected to finance themselves eventually, if not initially, without recourse to their shareholders. They are independent corporate entities run by a dedicated staff that seeks career advancement within the concession company. Invariably, the successful concession has been created because of a compelling economic need.

SOURCE (Standard Overall Ultralite Road Care Estimate), a large-scale benchmark tool for road networks

Over the past ten years or so, the road sector has undergone major reforms in a number of Sub-Saharan African countries. This process has been encouraged by the donor community, especially through the Road Management Initiative (RMI). New policies have been introduced, such as the off budget financing of road maintenance and the direct participation of road users in the road management entities. Ways of doing business are changing: more dependence on market mechanisms, further decentralization; new types of entities and operators.
