Lane rental scheme: funding road infrastructure by reducing the time limitations of roadworks

Travaux sur le réseau VINCI Autoroutes

Road infrastructure maintenance is essential if network performance is to be preserved. It requires regular interventions by public works companies. However, these roadworks also vehicle negative externalities which may prove to be expensive to users (longer journey times) and may put a strain on cities’ attractiveness.

Managed lanes: promoting some uses while funding infrastructure

Managed lanes meet three objectives: maintaining an optimal service level on the road in question or the motorway, achieved through a reduction in the volume of traffic by influencing the price or journey time, improving the commercial speed of public transportation lines and producing revenues to finance projects on the thoroughfare concerned.

The concession model to step up carbon intensity reduction in medium – and long – distance mobility

There are many solutions to reduce transport sector emissions in dense areas and over short distances. However, many of these mechanisms are not ineffective for medium distances (from 10 to 100km).

Weight tax and taxes on HGV traffic in Europe

According to the CITEPA, in 2017, HGVs accounted for 5.7% of total CO2 emissions in France and roughly 20% of annual CO2equivalent emissions in the transport sector. However, goods carriers do not contribute to road network maintenance proportionately to their effect on it.

La Fabrique de la Cité

La Fabrique de la Cité is a think tank dedicated to urban foresight, created by the VINCI group, its sponsor, in 2010. La Fabrique de la Cité acts as a forum where urban stakeholders, whether French or international, collaborate to bring forth new ways of building and rebuilding cities.
