Keeping Valencia on the fast track of social and economic growth with a faster and safer highway.
Value for Society
Significant improvement of local connectivity. The road links the city of Valencia with the inland areas and contributes to enhance the economy.
Value for Shareholders
Strong and robust revenues, and a long-term value creation strategy.
Value for People
Turia Highway is the only high-capacity highway of the area. It has improved road safety while reducing travel times.
Shadow Toll Road
Turia Highway has been operational since 2008 and is part of a concession agreement that ends in 2041. The highway consists of a 53 km double carriageway road with at least two lanes in each direction. The project’s revenue scheme is derived from monthly shadow tolls paid by the grantor based on actual light/heavy vehicle traffic, subject to a cap and indexed annually to inflation whilst also being subject to standard penalty and bonus payments. Besides, Sacyr developed expansion works of the highway to three two-way lanes and the duplication of the roadway on a 15.4 km stretch. These works improve the connectivity in Valencia and its metropolitan area.
In terms of innovation, the road uses sustainable asphalt mixtures. Thus, to develop crack sealing operations and pothole repairs we already use Lazarus, a petrochemical compound variant of our road additive Bioroad. Its composition, that includes graphene-based nanomaterials and bituminous binders, permits us to improve the pavements’ resistance to fatigue cycles and enhance the useful life of the road. Additionally, through AC11 Surf, a cold mix asphalt consistent of a bituminous mixture, we ensure that the operation and treatment processes have a lower environmental impact.
In addition to the use of recycled materials, the highway also utilizes a sustainable lighting with LED technology, which will allow a reduction of energy consumption by 60%.
