The ASFINAG motorway and expressway network currently comprises approximately 2,200 kilometres. The company thus has an extensive area of responsibility. It includes planning and construction of new road projects, operating and maintaining the existing network, toll collection and the development of telematic services. Increased road safety, better international connections to Austria's neighbouring countries and the necessary relocation of traffic to the main road network – this is what planning and construction at ASFINAG focuses on.
Sustainability – top priority
As a commercial company we strive to continuously improve our maintenance management, in order to make the best possible use of the infrastructure facilities. Sustainability always has top priority. We are aware that in our capacity as a building contractor and infrastructure operator, we impact people and the environment in many different ways. ASFINAG carries great responsibility. Environmental impacts must be kept as low as possible, and the needs of our customers and of residents must be taken seriously. We are constantly facing this challenge in all core areas.
Challenge: mobility of the future
Another challenge is the question of how to handle future mobility such that it is ecologically sustainable and socially responsible. As a modern motorway operator we are already today thinking about the mobility of tomorrow. In the future, all relevant road traffic information will be directly transmitted into our customers' cars to quickly provide them with information about the traffic situation on the motorways. At the same time, we are planning to pinpoint public transport alternatives. We at ASFINAG see this interlinking with public transport as the mobility of the future.
