On the 1st September 2017 the A11 Brugge Design, Build, Finance and Maintain (DBFM) Motorway in Belgium, was successfully opened to traffic after approximately 3.5 years of strict planning, management and construction. The project, part of the Trans-European Transport (TEN-T) network, consists of a 13km 2-lane highway which completes the missing link between the N31 at Brugge and the N49 at Knokke.

The last decade has been difficult for transport infrastructure providers. After years of reliable growth, motorway traffic fell or remained static, after the 2008  financial crisis. Traffic through airports, railways and even ferries also suffered.

However, it seems that across Europe the market has stabilised, and we are again seeing progressive traffic recovery and growth. In response, there is a growing appetite for investment in the sector through new PPP schemes, and specially through secondary sales/acquisitions and refinancing.

When thinking about moving groups of people from one destination to another, trains, buses, and airplanes are usually the first things that come to mind.

Rail fares in most of Europe were at one point strictly regulated as a function of distance, in many cases to avoid private sector railways exploiting their market power. While some European railways still have such “kilometric” fares, at least for longer-distance travel, recent work by Steer Davies Gleave has revealed increasing diversity in not only the structure and level of fares but also how they are sold as tickets.

The sports and events market is having to respond to the rise of digital engagement to ensure that their brands stay relevant and that they can connect with fans.
