Transurban is a pioneer of the public-private partnership (P3) managed lanes concept in the United States.Led by Group General Manager Jennifer Aument, our North American business was among the pioneers of public-private partnerships for major transportation infrastructure in the Virginia region.Our Express Lanes network features industry-leading tolling and traffic management systems on more than 40 miles of managed lanes across the 495 and 95 Express Lanes.Transurban was one of the first to use a number of innovative financing and technology strategies in the development of major toll road projects.The US business is currently working with the Virginia Department of Transportation to extend the 95 Express Lanes to the north and south. The 395 Express Lanes project will extend the 95 Express Lanes network eight miles north to the DC line by converting two existing high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes to three reversible high-occupancy toll (HOT) lanes by 2020.Construction is also under way on a two-mile extension to the south on 95.The Express Lanes have helped address long-standing congestion in the Greater Washington region by providing faster travel options for drivers. During pe...ak periods, traffic speeds on the 95 Express Lanes are on average 40 percent higher than in the adjacent general purpose lanes.The Express Lanes also encourage car-pooling and have delivered greater travel time reliability. Travel times have also improved in the regular lanes as commuters take advantage of the new travel options.Transurban regularly conducts safety programs to minimize dangerous driving behaviours on our roads and across the region. These include campaigns such as Orange Cones. No Phones during construction season and our ‘Phones Down’ campaign, which advocates for anti-distracted driving.The Express Lanes Community Grant Programs are another way we support the communities in which we operate. Since the Grant Program was established in 2008 we have donated more than $680,000 to non-profit organizations in Northern Virginia.
