The highway is located to the east of the city of Porto, between Vila Real and Bragança and is 194 km long operating under a mixed toll system. It came into service in 2013 for a term of 30 years.
Following this operation and the purchase on 16 February increasing its stake in Scutvias up to 55.55%, Globalvia now manages 392 km of highway in Portugal that handle traffic of 82 million vehicles a year.
As part of the policy of international expansion, in February 2017 Globalvia completed the purchase of 33.33% of Scutvias and last November acquired the Pocahontas Parkway in Richmond, Virginia opening to the USA market.
