Rome, 24-11-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — The Astaldi Group has won a new road contract in Poland, amounting to € 85 million.
The works involve the enlarging and modernizing of 14 kilometres of NR-8 Breslava-Varsavia-Białystok, for the section between Mężenin and Jeżevo (from Km 601+700 to Km 615+960.85). Also planned is the construction of two interchanges (Sikory and Kobylin), 9 viaducts and related works. This lot is adjacent to a previous one being carried by Astaldi and this will generate economies of scale in terms of execution.
Works will be started in 2014, lasting about two years.
The works were commissioned by Poland’s General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) and will be finalized with the contribution of UE funds.
The new order, following the awarding of € 280 million for Lot 3 of NR-5 expressway and two further lots of the NR-8 expressway, reinforces the positioning of the Astaldi Group in Poland, with an order backlog amounting to approximately € 600 million.
