INVESTMENTS

Develop, modernise and enhance

The concession model that defines the rules for the French motorway system positions APRR as a developer. Our mission is to bring people and communities closer together. To achieve it, we are continuously modernising the existing network.

We invest significant sums in modernising and developing the network. Between 2006 and 2015, €3,100 million were invested to create new motorway junctions and increase the number of lanes. This sustained investment effort continues today. Some €500 million will be invested over the period 2014-2018 under the terms of the planning contracts, rising to  €719 million by 2021, in accordance with the motorway regeneration plan.

The network’s customer base is growing and transport habits are changing, as evidenced by the increasing popularity of car pooling, changing peak traffic times, the boom in urban logistics, etc. At APRR, we anticipate these changes in order to provide the best infrastructure to meet our customers’ expectations.

APRR’S ROLE AS A MOTORWAY DEVELOPER

The Group invests in infrastructure development, to cope with growth in traffic and to ensure smooth, pleasant driving conditions for customers. 
In order to successfully complete all of its projects under the supervision of the French State and to ensure that the motorway serves the public interest, APRR operates in partnership with all other stakeholders.
