内容简介：Private participation in road construction and operations has the advantages of efficiency gains, private financing, and better identification of attractive investment projects. Such participation is generally implemented through a franchising contract, under which a private firm builds and operates roads in a road network at its own expense, and in return receives the revenue from road tolls for a number of years, and then these roads are transferred to the government. Such commercial and private provision of public roads has attracted growing interest in recent years and such plans are being used to finance modern road systems worldwide, especially, in China. This presentation briefly describes the theoretical issues of the highway franchising projects, provides an in-depth overview of the available literature and identifies several important directions for future research.
