The UK Government View of Public Private Partnerships
C Jones, The Highways Agency, UK
The paper explores the views of the UK Government on private public partnerships (PPP?s) through the eyes of the Highways Agency. The Highways Agency is an executive agency of the Department forTransport with responsibility for managing the motorway and trunk road network in England. The Agency has extensive experience of PPP?s going back ten years and more. On the strength of that experience, the paper explores the extent to which PPP objectives have been achieved, issues that are being pursued, and the context for the continuing use of PPP in the future.
