VINCI named concessionaire of the A-Modell A5 motorway section in Germany

• A 30-year Public-Private Partnership (PPP) contract
• An investment of about €600 million

The German government, via the state of Baden-Württemberg, has named the consortium led by VINCI Concessions concessionaire of the A-Modell A5 motorway section between Malsch and Offenburg in south western Germany. The existing 60-kilometre section is to be refurbished, and a 41.5-kilometre portion of it is to be widened to a dual three-lane carriageway.

The project, which has an estimated value of €600 million, covers financing, design and refurbishment/widening works as well as operation and maintenance for a period of 30 years. The concessionaire will be remunerated on the basis of heavy goods vehicle (over 12 tonnes) traffic, as measured by the Toll Collect satellite toll system.

The work, which will take five years to complete, will be carried out by a consortium of construction companies led by VINCI subsidiary, Eurovia Germany (50%).

This contract is the last of the four A-Modell concession pilot projects launched by the German government in 2005 and is the second won by VINCI Concessions, following the A4 Thuringe project in 2007. This success further consolidates the Group’s operations in Germany, where it generated revenue of over €1.7 billion in 2008.
