A6 Parkway, Netherlands
The A6 Parkway is a DBFM project located in Almere. The project is part of a wider program aiming to improve the accessibility of the greater Amsterdam area. This program includes an expansion of the road between Schiphol (A9) – Amsterdam (A10) – Almere (A6).
In 2016, a John Laing-led consortium, Parkway 6, achieved financial close on the A6 Almere, a public-private partnership project comprising the design, build, financing, operations and maintenance of 13.5 kilometres of the A6 motorway under a 20-year operating concession. This upgrade and redevelopment project included designing a wider A6, widening the existing road from two to four lanes, and renovating interchanges, bridges and viaducts in order to increase the capacity of the motorway and improve the flow of traffic. A key differentiator in the bidding process was the quality of the consortium’s quality plan, particularly the impact of the project on local residents and biodiversity.
John Laing is an 85% shareholder in the Parkway 6 consortium and committed £9 million of investment at financial close. Construction works on the project started in 2017 and completed in mid-2019.
