HDMI is made up of 2 categories namely the Value-added Concessions (VAC) and the Unbundled Assets Approvals (UAA): UAA provides opportunity for small businesses to take advantage of the commercial opportunities that are available along the Right-Of-Way.
Under the VAC the road pavement and entire right of way is concessioned for development and management by the concessionaire.
