The concession model

Concession Sanef

  • 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.

A long-term investor
