Safety-based incentives in Public Private Partnerships (PPPs): the Spanish case
Áreas de investigación
  • Ingenierías
Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) are mostly implemented for three reasons: to circumvent 22 budgetary constraints, encourage efficiency and improvement of quality in the provision of 23 public infrastructure. One of the ways of reaching the latter objective is by the introduction of 24 performance-based standards tied to bonuses and penalties to reward or punish the 25 performance of the contractor. These performance based standards often refer to different 26 aspects such as technical, environmental and safety issues. 27 28 This paper focuses on the implementation of safety based incentives in PPPs. The main aim of 29 this paper is to analyze whether the incentives to improve road safety in PPPs are effective in 30 improving safety ratios in Spain. To this end, negative binomial regression models have been 31 applied using information from the Spanish high capacity network in 2006. 32 33 The findings indicate that even though road safety is highly influenced by variables that are 34 not much controllable by the contractor such as the Average Annual Daily Traffic and the 35 percentage of heavy vehicles in the highway, the implementation of safety incentives in PPPs 36 has a positive influence in the reduction of fatalities, injuries and accidents.
