One of the major European infrastructure managers is the Austrian ASFiNAG (Autobahnen- und Schnellstraßen-Finanzierungs-Aktiengesellschaft). Founded in 1982, it plans, finances, builds, maintains, operates and tolls highways and expressways throughout Austria.
ASFiNAG finances all expenditures - from new roads to functioning winter services to clean rest areas - solely from its own resources. It reinvests the toll revenues directly into the infrastructure - for even more safety. In plain language, this means that there are no subsidies from the state budget.
