Long-term financial planning and sound governance is essential for maintaining transportation infrastructure and assets. Public-private sector partnerships and cooperation are vital. This book looks at the current state of our infrastructure and ways to better maintain it with environmentally friendly solutions and long-term sustainability and capital planning.
