VINCI Highways Opens Section 2 of The Lima Expressway, in Peru

 

NewswireToday - /newswire/ - Lima, Peru, 2018/06/18 - VINCI Highways, a VINCI Concessions subsidiary and concession holder of Lima’s main expressway until 2049, opened section 2 of the infrastructure on Friday, 15 June 2018 - VINCI.com. CAC 40; Euronext 100

   
 
 

• Infrastructure built to best international standards in synergy between VINCI Concessions, VINCI Construction and VINCI Energies;
• Increased capacity and smoother traffic;
• 40,000 vehicles a day expected on new section.

The new 9 km toll section serves the Peruvian capital’s business districts. The official opening was attended by Lima’s mayor, Luis Castañeda Lossio, Fadi Selwan, chairman of VINCI Highways, and Laurent Cavrois, CEO of Lamsac.

The new section, along with the existing 16 km of road, will make traffic smoother, reduce journey times and improve the mobility in the 10 million inhabitants’ agglomeration, South America’s fifth-largest city.

Infrastructure built to highest standards by capitalising on the construction-concession business model
Despite numerous constraints in a geologically complex and densely populated environment, the works were completed in just 15 months. The infrastructure, which includes 13 viaducts and a 2 km tunnel under the Rímac River, the first of its kind in Peru, meets the highest international standards.
Illustrating the synergy between VINCI’s various areas of expertise, the project employed over 5,000 skilled workers from a number of Group entities, including VINCI Construction Grands Projets, Sixsense, VINCI Energies and Soletanche Bachy.

Smooth traffic, comfort and customer service
Although road traffic in Lima is constantly increasing, section 2 of the expressway will make journeys smoother and improve the mobility of Lima’s inhabitants. Over 40,000 vehicles a day are expected on the new section.

Since its acquisition in December 2016, VINCI Highways supported the 550 employees of concession holder Lamsac by exporting its expertise in motorway operation, road safety and customer service. More than 90 traffic cameras, feeding the operations centre 24/7, facilitate supervision and optimise incident management. Furthermore, using an innovative marketing strategy, VINCI Highways has doubled the number of electronic toll collection customers in less than a year, boosting the smoothness of traffic and the customer experience.

A sustainable approach
In the rapidly growing dense urban fabric, VINCI Highways has, in consultation with local populations, introduced a large number of measures promoting sustainable infrastructure. In 2018, this strategy resulted in the company receiving the Peru 2021 Socially Responsible Company Award in recognition of the numerous initiatives, which included a reforestation programme, a road safety awareness campaign in all the schools along the expressway, a programme of social development through sport and a project to support female entrepreneurs in Lima.

Fadi Selwan, VINCI Highways’ chairman said : “With section 2 of Lima’s expressway, VINCI Highways is delivering and preparing to operate modern, environment-friendly infrastructure. By improving urban mobility, we will support the growth of a city in great development. This project is the perfect illustration of our values: a partnership approach with public authorities, quality and safety for drivers, and the sharing of our expertise with our local teams. The project also demonstrates VINCI Highways’ capacity to make a success of major brownfield motorway projects in complex environments.”
