Our Network / Investment plan and ongoing measures



Autostrade per l’Italia and its subsidiaries are carrying out a major investment plan to develop and modernize the highway network.

Investment plan and ongoing measures

Every day, nearly 5 million motorists pass though the 3.020 km highway network managed by Autostrade per l'Italia and its subsidiaries.

A major investment plan, which envisages a financial commitment of over €25 billion, is being implemented for the expansion and modernisation of the network and the addition of third, fourth and fifth lanes to approximately 1.066 km of highway network.

An overview of expansion interventions carried out by Autostrade per l'Italia and its subsidiaries is provided below. 

In addition to the construction of third and fourth lanes, work is underway on new junctions and on the refurbishment and upgrading of the lighting, ventilation and fire protection systems of 401 tunnels along the network. Other investments, worth approximately €3,5 billion, are also underway for the structural and technological upgrading of the network.

Over 480 km of work completed, with third, fourth and fifth lanes

Work has been completed on over 480 km of network, including:

  • 429,7 km of the Autostrade per l'Italia network
  • 51,2 km of the Autostrade per l'Italia subsidiaries network

A breakdown of the interventions undertaken by Autostrade per l'Italia and its subsidiaries is available below.
