The best mobility solution

The highway incorporates equipment which constantly reviews the state of the pavement, balises and signaling, and a network of SOS posts with 24-hour service to provide rapid response to possible accidents or mechanical problems.

Full range of services

The highway has signed an agreement with the Royal Automoblie Club of Catalonia which places a fleet of vehicles at the disposition of users in the event of breakdown. This service provideds rapid response to emergency situations.

Supporting the Fundación Abadía de Montserrat

Since 2006, Autema has been collaborating with the Fundación Abadía de Montserrat. The donation is devoted to extending and digitalising the library of the Monastery, restoring various buildings and improving accessibility and mobility in the grounds of the Sanctuary.

Moreover, the highway has entered into an agreement with the local organisation Ampans which takes in, trains and provides jobs for persons with disabilities. This personnel takes care of gardening and other cleaning tasks.
