Delivering Road Programs: How Do Countries Perform?

Globally, US $700 billion are invested every year on new and existing road assets as the world’s economies develop and respond to new mobility needs. Delivering these road programs is a task fraught with challenges which too often lead to inefficient use of scarce funds.

In 2013, a landmark report published by McKinsey’s Infrastructure Practice presented stark evidence of the size of the infrastructure gap and the resulting need for governments to rethink how they select, design, deliver and manage infrastructure projects.

Building on the methodology developed in this report, a global benchmarking initiative is now underway to deliver transparency in road infrastructure delivery programs through an objective diagnosis and evaluation of current practices worldwide.

This webinar will present what is known about the most frequent causes of program and project inefficiencies, and what steps can boost productivity in the road infrastructure sector. Government agencies wishing to take part in the global benchmarking initiative are particularly  encouraged to attend this complimentary webinar.
