VINCI has won a seven-year tolling contract renewal in California worth some US$73 million.

The deal involves building a new back office system. VINCI Highways (VINCI Concessions), was selected by Orange County Transportation Authority and Riverside County Transportation Commission, near Los Angeles to provide and operate a new back office system and a customer service center for the 91 Express Lanes. The firm won the deal through its subsidiary Cofiroute USA. The highway stretch is a 29km link connecting Anaheim and Corona.

TollPlus, a company in which VINCI Highways acquired a strategic stake in 2016, will provide a modern back office system with new features. The firm says that this will allow transaction management and improve financial performance. It will be able to handle more than 150,000 accounts and the 37 million trips recorded/year.
