A Decade of Action in Transport: An Evaluation of World Bank Assistance to the Transport sector, 1995-2005

This report evaluates the World Bank’s transportation activities from 1995-2005 and it also looks at the World Bank’s preparedness to undertake challenges that are emerging. On the down side, the evaluation concludes that the transportation sector needs to pay more attention to confronting such issues as environmental damage, traffic congestion, efficiency, traffic safety, and affordability. On the up side, the evaluation concludes that performance in the past, especially in the areas of intercity highway rehabilitation and construction, has been managed well; that outcome ratings for projects have displayed steady improvement since the early 1990s; and that private sector development was enhanced by the Bank’s approach to transportation. In addition, the evaluation noted that crucial factors of the current strategy are still relevant today. These factors include urban strategy, sustainability, and involvement of the private sector in transportation issues. Modes covered in the report include roads and highways, railroads, ports and waterways, and aviation.
