Proceedings of a specialty conference, Major Development and Transportation Projects: Public-Private Partnerships, held in Boston, Massachusetts, June 28-30, 1990. Sponsored by the Public Transport Committee of the Urban Transportation Division of ASCE.
This collection contains 30 papers exploring new and innovative ways in which the private sector and public transportation agencies can work together. Case studies on individual projects are offered, as well as papers describing trends and innovations observed in the United States and Europe with regard to financing, procuring, and delivering major transportation and development projects. Special emphasis is placed on structuring deals to effectively harness the enterprise of the private sector while preserving for the public sector those tasks for which it is best suited or which cannot reasonably be delegated. The variety of projects examined range from tolled highway, bridge, and tunnel links to new rail and people mover lines to individual transit station joint development projects.
