2017 Key figures
3,200 km of motorways, bridges, tunnels and urban roads
Optimising road infrastructure around the world
At a time when road mobility challenges are increasing all over the world, VINCI Highways offers the global vision and capacity to take action of an international leader, with 24 concessions, representing a total of over 3,200 km of motorways, bridges, tunnels and urban roads, and a large number of contracts for infrastructure operation and toll services. Its integrated business model, which covers design, financing, construction, operation and services to motorists, is now provided to public authorities in 13 countries. By adapting its international know-how to the specific requirements of each country, VINCI Highways now handles almost 1 million transactions a day in both mature and emerging markets.
Designing and operating new rail links
Completion to particularly tight deadlines of the huge South Europe Atlantic high-speed rail line (SEA HSL) project confirmed the vitality of the integrated concessionconstruction model of VINCI, one of the few groups in the world with the capacity to tackle this enormous challenge. With the successful commissioning of the high-speed line, VINCI Concessions, through its subsidiary VINCI Railways, has bolstered its expertise in railway operation in the French market.
VINCI Stadium hosted 152 events at its five venues in 2017 and welcomed 5.3 million(*) spectators, offering them an increasingly digital experience.
VINCI expects its Concessions business to post further growth in 2018.
Traffic on VINCI Autoroutes’ network should continue its upward trend against an improved economic backdrop in Europe, which facilitates national and transnational trade. VINCI Airports will continue its growth, boosted by the extension of its international portfolio and sustained growth in passenger numbers. The pace of growth will, however, be less brisk than in previous years due to the high base for comparison. VINCI Highways, meanwhile, will benefit from the contribution from concession and operation contracts recently won in Europe and the Americas. Lastly, 2018 will be the first full year of operation of the South Europe Atlantic high-speed rail line in France. VINCI expects it to go on being a commercial success or become even more successful.
In programme management, the Group will be applying its expertise as an integrated concession operator-builder to a large number of projects: in France, where the motorway stimulus plan projects make VINCI Autoroutes one of the country’s main programme managers of public works; outside France, with the works programmes associated with the airport concession in Chile and motorway concessions in Germany, Russia, Canada, Colombia and Peru.
VINCI will continue its proactive business development strategy, taking over existing concessions in the airport and motorway sectors, as well as acquiring new concessions. The skills sharing and mobility within the VINCI Concessions divisions (VINCI Airports, VINCI Highways, VINCI Railways) and with VINCI Autoroutes will facilitate the approach to new markets. That approach will also benefit from synergies with Contracting business lines and their networks, which operate all over the world. In line with the Group’s unwavering policy, these developments will help replenish the concession portfolio by expanding its international footprint and extending its average maturity.
New avenues for creating value will be opened up through innovation. Innovation policies will optimise the operational performance of each business line and identify new services for infrastructure users, focusing in particular on connected mobility and the journey experience. In the longer term, the Group-wide innovation approach will reveal new business models, associated with the profound transformation in infrastructure and mobility practices.
