In the last issue of our client briefing we informed you about a conference on the future of infrastructure projects in Germany – with a focus on public private partnership (PPP) projects for the construction and maintenance of German motorways - hosted by Germany's Federal Minister for Transport and Digital Infrastructure.

For the first project, the extension and maintenance of a part of motorway A 10/A 24 close to Berlin, a contract notice (volume EUR 400 million) has now be published on the German government’s procurement portal e-Vergabe and is expected to appear on OJEU in the next few days. 

The project is being procured by German Unity Motorway Planning and Construction Company (DEGES), the government-owned company that is managing the tender on behalf of the federal government.

Background:

On 26 May 2015, Germany's Federal Minister for Transport and Digital Infrastructure, Alexander Dobrindt, hosted a conference on the future of infrastructure projects in Germany. The conference focussed on public private partnership (PPP) projects for the construction and maintenance of German motorways.

A particular focus was given to the ten new PPP projects that have been identified by the Ministry and are currently in the planning phase (see table below). These projects comprise an investment volume of more than EUR 14 billion and involve approximately 600 kilometres of motorways or federal roads. The tender for the first of these projects – the extension and maintenance of a part of motorway A 10/A 24 close to Berlin – has now been issued.
