OMEGA Report

Megaprojects: Lessons for Decision-makers

This analysis of selected international large-scale transport infrastructure projects is presented in English, Chinese and Spanish by the OMEGA Centre of Excellence at Bartlett School of Planning, University College London.

The OMEGA Centre is a global Centre of Excellence funded by the Volvo Research and Education Foundations (VREF) directed by Professor Harry T. Dimitriou and based at the Bartlett School of Planning at University College London (UCL). Working with partner universities across the world, the centre’s research focuses on achieving a better understanding of decision-making in the planning, appraisal and delivery of Mega Transport Projects (MTPs), based on thirty international case studies.

The centre has as its overall mission the task of establishing what constitutes a ‘successful’ MTP for the 21st Century in light of the increasing risks and uncertainties that the future poses.

The research was supported by a Centre of Excellence grant from VREF. The Final Report was prepared by Prof. Harry T. Dimitriou, Philip G. Wright and Dr. E. John Ward with the assistance of the UCL OMEGA Team.
