Concession contract for a 41 Km free-toll expressway based on availability payments. The road runs from Purchena to Huercal-Overa (Almería) and will be part of a longer corridor liking the A 92 expressway and A-7 expressway (in the Mediterranean corridor).
The project will result in significant safety benefits and time savings for existing traffic (mainly local and regional). It may also attract long distance traffic from the much longer (36 km) A-92/A-7 itinerary (Baza – Huercal Overa). The project is expected to improve the quality of life of the population living along the existing road, foster economic development by improving access to many industrial sites and create employment.
