In response to a call for tenders issued by Toulouse Métropole regarding a public service delegation contract for a number of car parks, Indigo’s bid was selected, thereby allowing the company to invest in the city’s urban development.
The contract, signed on 1 March 2016, includes:
- The renovation and operation of five existing car parks, representing a total of 3,400 spaces, for a period of 20 years;
- A 5-year concession for a new 400-space car park near the future Toulouse high-speed railway station, which is due to open in 2019; this project requires a high level of technical expertise as the new structure will comprise two underground levels that shall be built above the tunnel of metro line A. The car park will accompany the redevelopment of allées Jean-Jaurès, which will be turned into a wide, pedestrianised avenue as part of the project managed by the Catalan architect, Joan Busquets.
- The development and operation for 10 years of one to three multi-storey car parks in the new Cartoucherie eco-district, representing 450 to 1,500 spaces.
Between 2016 and 2019, Indigo will invest over €54 m and increase the number of car parks that it manages from 14 to 18, thereby reaching almost 10,000 spaces.
