STRABAG awarded €111m contract for 16km section of A1 in Poland
The Polish subsidiary of publicly listed European construction company STRABAG SE will be part of a syndicate to build a 16 km section of the A1 highway between Tuszyn and Bełchatów.
The Polish General Directorate for National Roads and Highways (GDDKiA) has awarded a design-and-build contract to the syndicate, which means that the construction companies will be
responsible for both planning and the subsequent execution of the plans. The contract value amounts to approximately €111 million with STRABAG allocated 50%.
“The A1 in Poland is an important link between the ports in the north of the country and the south of Europe. We are pleased to have again received an order for a section in the course of the expansion of the A1”, says Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE.
Execution with concrete pavement
The entire section will be constructed using concrete with two lanes going in each direction. The contract also covers two junctions, 17 bridges, several intersections and access roads, noise barriers and wildlife crossings.
