A strategic approach to improving Argentina's roadway infrastructure financing
MetadataShow full item record
The cyclic economic crises in Argentina have not allowed continuous funding policies for the development, operation, and maintenance of the ground based transportation system. In addition, the inadequate financing system and imbalances introduced gradually in the last 12 years, have set the transportation network into a crisis. The assigned resources are insufficient to maintain and develop the transportation system as required for the country’s growth. In order to improve this situation, a long term funding policy should be established as well as conditions to increase public transportation and toll fares, which will encourage private participation and efficiency in the service operation. The purpose of this thesis is to first examine the organization required for financing, promoting, regulating and delivering transportation programs and services in Argentina, and then propose measures to set a long term funding policy for the national roadway system.
