Abstract
***************************************** Los congresos del World Conference on Transport Research Society, son de reconocido prestigio internacional dentro del campo de la investigación del transporte, pero desde 2010 los libros de abstracts ya no tienen ISBN. Pero por su importancia deberían ser tenidos en cuenta en los indicadores de calidad. ******************************************************************* This paper focuses on the implementation of safety based incentives in Public Private Partnerships (PPPs). The aim of this paper is twofold. First, to evaluate whether PPPs lead to an improvement in road safety, when compared with other infrastructure management systems. Second, is to analyze whether the incentives to improve road safety in PPP contracts in Spain have been effective at improving safety performance. To this end, negative binomial regression models have been applied using information from the Spanish high-capacity network covering years 2007-2009. The results showed that even though road safety is highly influenced by variables that are not manageable by the private concessionaire such as the average annual daily traffic, the implementation of safety incentives in PPPs has a positive influence in the reduction of accidents.
