The Dutch Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat) has provisionally selected the 3Angle consortium, comprising Heijmans, Fluor and 3i Infrastructure, for the A27/A1 Public Private Partnership Project. This PPP contract comprises the design, construction, management and maintenance, and the financing of the reconstruction of the A27 motorway between Utrecht North and the Eemnes junction, as well as the A1 motorway between the Eemnes junction and the Bunschoten-Spakenburg connection. The project’s contract value amounts to approximately € 220 million (including management and maintenance for a period of 25 years), 50% of which is for the account of Heijmans.

The A27/A1 project will improve traffic circulation and safety on the A27 and A1 motorways, while retaining the quality of the living environment. The project among other things includes the widening of the A27 from 2x2 to 2x3 lanes, as well as the widening of the A1 from 2x2 to 2x4 lanes. 3Angle will also widen the A27-A1 connecting curve within the Eemnes junction.

Rijkswaterstaat expects to grant final project contract award by the end of July, with a financial close expected in October. The project is to be completed by mid-2019.
