|Abstract: ||The provision of infrastructure is crucial to the development of Africa .Sustainable infrastructure development is equally vital for Africa’s prosperity (World Bank, 2009). To ensure that there is progressive sustainable development, governments and the private sector must come together to lead the revolution to ensure that Africa’s infrastructure sector does not lag behind the rest of the world (World Bank, 2009).
The aim of this study is to “investigate why private sector has not partnered with government to provide roads in urban cities in Ghana”.
For the purpose of this study, the techniques deduced for the collection of data shall be questionnaires which would be physically delivered to respondents. The questionnaire was distributed to public sector workers involved with provision of road infrastructure in Ghana and specifically the Accra metropolitan Assembly area. The distribution of the questionnaire was to two senior officials each of the Ministry of Roads and Highways, the Department of Urban Roads, Department of Feeder Roads, Ghana Highway Authority and the PPP Unit of the Ministry of Finance. Responses received from the questionnaire was analysed in accordance with the objective of the research.
From the study conducted it was observed that, the private sector has contributed immensely to the provision of road infrastructure in Ghana. The private sector has contributed finance, technical expertise in the construction of several roads in several urban areas. The contribution of the private sector is not increasing significantly as expected, even though economic development is on the rise. Private investment in road infrastructure is on the decline because investment risk in roads keeps increasing due to unavailable appropriate repayment mechanisms.|
