This book has been developed to address the growing worldwide interest in the use of light rail–light metro transit (LRMT) schemes to provide urban transport solutions and, in particular, to review the potential use of public-private partnership (PPP), or private-public participation, models to support LRMT schemes. This work, funded by the World Bank and the Public-Private Infrastructure Advisory Facility, is based on extensive industry consultation and the development of case studies from recent major LRMT schemes, all involving some form of PPP arrangement.
The book is arranged in nine key subject chapters, and the sequence has been chosen to follow, in general terms, the way that these issues are developed during the project life cycle, from policy setting through procurement and long-term management of the LRMT scheme (see figure0.1). Each chapter gives a broad overview of the key issues involved, but there is sufficient sufficient depth to be of practical use in effective selection, design, and implementation of a PPP arrangement for an LRMT scheme.
