French Government Is Open to More Highway P3s, If No Tax Money Is Involved reports that France’s president, François Hollande, announced that his government “is open to many more road improvement ideas from private road operators and concession holders if the work is at no cost to the taxpayer.” A French newspaper report says Hollande’s comments, made during the ceremonial opening of an A9 AutoRoute upgrade, were a response to suggestions from Vinci Concessions executive Pierre Coppey and Patrick Vignal of Herault.
