Public sector transportation infrastructure owners are currently faced with the increasingly difficult task of doing more with less; that is, maintaining their existing stock of infrastructure in good condition, as well as adding new growth-stimulating transportation facilities, with decreasing levels of real financial capital, especially in the short term. Private investors in the transportation market also have a smaller pool of funds available to spend and a lower appetite for risk than in the past, due to the global financial crisis and economic downturn.
In this current paradigm, public agencies, as well as private investors, are under pressure from taxpayers and private shareholders to make transparent, informed, and data-driven decisions regarding the types of infrastructure projects in which they should be investing, based on a thorough analysis of the relative costs, benefits, and economic impacts of each potential project.
