Our mission: financing, operating and maintaining our motorways, offering our customers the best conditions in safety and traffic flow, contributing to the development of regions through strong and committed local integration.
The concession model
- A clearly-defined contractual framework with the State, with rights and obligations.
- Investments and charges strictly regulated by the State.
- An obligation of result measured by the State: performance indicators (coupled with penalties) for asset maintenance, customer information and service quality are assessed annually.
- ARAFER is the government agency regulating motorways in France; it acts as a watchdog with powers of sanction.
