8. Ivana Burcar Dunović:

A study of project governance frameworks for large infrastructure projects with reflection on road Transport projects



In the last ten years the construction industry in Croatia has been characterised by large infrastructure construction projects. The focus of the current research is on large infrastructure project overruns and their causes, with the purpose of finding an effective way of dealing with them. During the last six years there has been a high intensity of motorway construction which is characterised by its fast-paced dynamics and adapting legal and institutional conditions. The paper presents preliminary research findings on road transport construction projects in Croatia and governance framework analysis as a basis for future research on project management governance. Project governance is analysed in more detail for the purpose of determining its relationship with other forms of governance in order to differentiate
them. There are several frameworks for project governance already in use with positive results. A case from the UK and one from Norway will be analysed with the purpose of identifying their relationships with project governance principles. Each infrastructure project construction model is based on the transport policy of an individual state. The purpose of this paper is to provide a basic starting point for developing a governance framework tailored to one specific country.
