Intelligence Series Infrastructure

Challenges around political volatility, corruption and fiscal constraints have hit many metro projects in Latin America, in some cases leading to severe delays. But demand growth remains high, with the region’s urban population continuing to expand, and there is an urgent need to fix another type of severe delay – the time wasted daily by millions of people in transit. Metro projects around the region will require at least US$40bn over the next decade and a half.
