2014-2018 MANAGEMENT CONTRACTS

A €500 million investment

The concession contracts agreed by the French government and APRR in 2001 are supplemented by two five-year management contracts, one concerning APRR, the other AREA. These contracts stipulate the investment in the network required from the Group in exchange for new toll pricing formulas that were introduced in 2014 and will remain in force until 2018.

In all, over the period 2014-2018, APRR will have invested €500 million to improve the services provided by its network.
