Study on Road Infrastructure Costs: Analysis of Unit Costs and Cost Overruns of Road Infrastructure Projects in Africa

05-Jun-2014

The African Development Bank (AfDB) commissioned a study during 2010/11 to analyze road unit costs and the extent of cost overruns in road infrastructure projects in Africa. The study focused on three main objectives, namely: (i) to determine unit costs for road infrastructure projects in Africa; (ii) to determine the prevalence and extent of cost overruns; and (iii) to determine the evolution of unit costs and cost overruns since the completion of previous studies – specifically the Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostics (AICD) study and a related study for the AfDB on Road Maintenance and Construction Costs in Africa.

This represents the Final Report for the study and presents the findings of the analysis on unit costs and cost overruns of road infrastructure projects in Africa.
