Availability model – A10/A24 Neuruppin to AD Pankow
The availability model A10/A24 Neuruppin to AD Pankow motorway, located near the German capital, Berlin, required reconstruction to accommodate the growing number of vehicles on the road. Specifically, heavy load vehicles transporting goods and cargo. Enhancement of the motorway was critical to alleviate congestion, address capacity issues and improve road safety.
The motorway was the first of 11 projects of the so-called ‘new generation’ wave of infrastructure PPP projects that was launched by the German Ministry of Transport in 2015.
A trusted partner who offered an economically efficient financing solution was required to deliver the enhanced A10/A24 motorway. Although competitive pricing was a key priority, it was also important for the selected partner to have the capabilities and expertise to ensure the project was of high quality.
In 2018, the German Ministry of Transport, represented by DEGES GmbH, awarded Havellandautobahn GmbH & Co. KG – comprising Invesis and HABAU – the PPP contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain (DBFOM) the A10/A24 motorway.

Prior to winning the PPP contract, Invesis had a strong presence within the German market and an existing relationship with the German Ministry of Transport, as we played a role in delivering the A8 Motorway, A9 Motorway and the A94 Forstinning-Marktl Motorway PPP infrastructure projects.
Although Invesis had an existing relationship with the client, this was the first time we partnered with HABAU. Transparent communication between all parties was key to build trust and form positive relationships to solve the clients’ challenges.
On 11th November 2022, the A10/A24 AS Neuruppin to AD Pankow motorway officially opened to traffic. Due to the lifecyle approach of the PPP contract, and the positive relationships formed between the consortia and client, the German Ministry of Transport received a high-quality asset, on-budget and on-schedule that will improve road safety and relieve traffic congestion.
By using the PPP contract approach and partnering with Havellandautobahn GmbH & Co. KG, the project…
- won the Digital & BIM category at the prestigious Solid BautechPreis Austria 2021 Awards
- design was developed utilising Building Information Modelling (BIM). This was the first time BIM was utilised on an PPP infrastructure project in Germany
Dr. Volker Wissing, Federal Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport said that the A10/A24 is a successful example of a public private partnership:
“The expansion of the A10 and A24 is a success story. With today’s opening to traffic, we have reached a major milestone in the project: the completion of the actual construction phase. All lanes between the Pankow motorway junction and the Neuruppin junction have now been renewed. In just under 5 years, we have expanded and modernised around 60 kilometres of motorway here. This is a remarkable pace for a project of unprecedented scale and another successful example of public-private partnership.”
