Greater road safety

Good environmental management practice

One of the measures implemented by Cintra is the creation of a Maintenance Centre with an environmentally friendly residue collection area. An authorised waste management company takes care of the treatment, recycling and storage of residues. Air and water quality and noise level will also be montiored and analysed.

Moreover there is a commitment to protection of the natural heritage therough the creation of facilities for the movement of fauna.
