Poland - Design and construction of the Lot 3 of the S3 Nowa Sòl – Legnica expressway
The Group, together with local company Pribex S.A., has won the contract to design and build a circa 14.4 km section of the S3 Expressway between the "Kazmierzow" and "Lubin Polnoc" junctions, located in Lower Silesia, about 450 km south-west of Warsaw. The lot is part of the larger project to resurface the S3 expressway from Świnoujście to Lubawka, which runs north to south through Poland, parallel with the German border. The S3 is part
of the European Route E65 and is supposed to speed up transport by reducing traffic in the numerous towns served by the old road.
The contract is managed by GDDKiA (Generalna Dyrekcja Dróg Krajowych i Autostrad) and follows the conditions set out in FIDIC Yellow (Design-Build). It was signed on December 22, 2014, which also marked the start of the estimated 30 months of work, including winter stoppages.
The project has a total value of approximately €135 million and is more than 50% financed by the European Union. It involves the creation of 3 junctions ("Kazmierzow", "Polkowice" and "Lubin Polnoc") and 25 major infrastructural works including bridges, overpasses and animal crossing points, and various minor works for the management of environmental impacts, drainage of surface water and interferences with various underground utilities. Two motorway service areas ("MOPs") are also included.
The design must take into consideration both the protection of the environment, given the numerous forests crossed and the impact on – and interference with – mining activities, which are highly important for the economy of the city of Lubin.
USA – Construction of the Dugway Storage Tunnel
The project is part of a broader plan for the collection, storage and treatment of water, with the objective of reducing the level of environmental pollution in Lake Erie. The Dugway Storage Tunnel in Cleveland, Ohio, is 4.5 km long, with a diameter of 8 meters.
