Significant safety features
The highway consists in lanes 3.75 meters wide, medians of 9 m and generous shoulders up to 3 m in width.
A very active economy lacking a highway network
Modernization of the roadway network has been a vital catalyst in the economic development of the country. The M4-M6 undoubtedly represents one of the most important milestones in this process since it significantly reduces transport costs between Dublin and Galway, Ireland’s most important tourist resort.
Providing a boost for Ireland’s economy
Amongst the numerous corporative social responsibility-related objectives fulfilled, the creation of 60 permanent jobs in the region stands out. In addition, construction of the M4-M6 has brought a breath of fresh air both to the environment and to safety, reducing fuel consumption significantly.
Our projects serve as an economic engine for growth, supporting the well-being of the communities where we work and live. We worked with the consulting firm, Steer, to prepare the Economic and Community Impact of Ferrovial’s Toll Roads report.
The study measured the economic value generated in the regions we invest in and the benefits received by travelers from the start of each concession until December 31, 2022.
