VIA DO INFANTE
Vía do Infante is located in the Algarve, one of the main tourist destinations in Europe, runs across almost the entire territory joining the towns of Lagos to Vila Real de Santo António and connecting Portugal with Spain in the south. Every year, citizens of practically all European nationalities pass through it.
Traffic increased an average 16.5% in 2016 and an average 11.0% in 2015 despite of changing the tolling system from shadow toll to a real-toll scheme by transferring the Major Maintenance risk to the Grantor and establishing an annual remuneration for availability.

Via do Infante organizes volunteering journey.
Professionals from the portuguese highway participated in a treasure hunt of the components needed to build the bikes in the city center of Faro. Thanks to their collaboration and teamwork, they were able to find the components and, once the bicycles were ready, they went to the institution to deliver them.
