Our impact

A66 Benavente – Zamora, Spain


This 30-year PPP project, with the Ministerio de Fomento (Ministry of Development and Public Works), consists of the design, building, financing, operation and maintenance of a new 49-km highway between Benavente and Zamora, parallel to the existing N-630, a two-lane road that will be used by local traffic.

The new A66 from Benavente to Zamora is a crucial new link in the principal highway networks of Spain and Europe.

This meant road traffic could use an uninterrupted spinal corridor of modern dualtwo-lane carriageway from Asturias in the north, to Andalucia in the south. The upgrade of this vital arm of the Trans-European road network was completed in 2015.

ESG/SDG Key facts

The Project is crossing one protected Natura 2000 area. During construction, 13 exit ramps to allow wildlife to cross safely were built along the Project in addition to bird protections on electrical lines and the relocation of 2 white stork nests. Some of the wolves close to the Project have been tagged allowing their movements to be monitored and the impact of the road on their behaviour to be studied.

Three maintenance trucks have been renewed with less polluting units mounting Euro VI Step E engines and patrolling vehicles routes have been optimised to reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

In Q3 2023, an ESG Management Committee was established.
