The advantages of top-class features

The Via do Infante highway is endowed with a series of features making travel easy and agreeable. Users of this route will meet with convenient accesses, various tunnels, more than a dozen viaducts, frequent service zones and numerous rest areas.

Greater road safety

Our entry into the Portuguese highway concession market has brought with it an increase in road safety, the creation of accident control, and the implementation of 24-hour user aid services.

Good environmental management practice

One of the measures implemented by Cintra is the creation of a Maintenance Centre with an environmentally friendly residue collection area. An authorised waste management company takes care of the treatment, recycling and storage of residues. Air and water quality and noise level will also be montiored and analysed.

Moreover there is a commitment to protection of the natural heritage therough the creation of facilities for the movement of fauna.

    History

    The old A-22 was in a deficient state of conservation.

    Since our arrival, Cintra has taken full charge of operation of the highway, incorporating a traffic control centre, user services, accident management and environmental monitoring.
