STRABAG awarded €125m road construction contract in Hungary
The European construction group STRABAG SE has been awarded a road construction contract in Hungary with a volume of approx. € 125 million. On behalf of state company NIF Zrt., STRABAG will build the first section of R76 expressway in western Hungary from Zalaegerszeg to the M7 motorway including the Hollád interchange.
The 8.6 km section comprises several overpasses, including a reinforced concrete bridge over the river Zala as well as two railway bridges. The construction works are expected to last four years.
“An especially challenging aspect of this project are the marshes and moors along the planned route consisting of soft silt and clay. This makes proper ground treatment and conditioning especially important,” explains Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE.
