Poland - Design and construction of the S8 Expressway section from the “Marki” junction to the “Kobylka” junction
The Contract includes the design and construction of the ring road north of Warsaw on the S8 expressway to Bialystok between Marki and Radzymin for a length of 8.13 km. The project aims at relieving urban traffic congestion and includes the construction of two interchanges (the ‘Zielonka’ junction and ‘Kobylka’ junction), 9 major engineering structures (5 bridges, 2 flyovers and 2 underpasses), and the resurfacing of other secondary and local roads. The contract is worth about € 80 million and the work will last 32 months. The project, of European importance, was included in the “Program for the construction of state roadways in 2011-2015”. The key benefits of the new expressway, besides relieving urban traffic congestion, include shorter travel times, a lower risk of accidents, fuel savings and less exhaust emissions and noise pollution.
Poland – construction of lot B of the S7 highway - section between Milomlyn and Olsztynek
The Salini Impregilo Group has been provisionally awarded the order for the construction of approximately 18.4 km of Lot B of the S7 expressway in Poland, approximately 210 km north of Warsaw, which crosses the entire country up to the Slovakian border. The contract specifically regards the section between Milomlyn and Olsztynek. The value of the contract is approximately € 194 million, with works expected to last 26 months. Lot B includes the upgrading of the S7 section crossing the city of Ostroda from north to south (total 9.7 km) and the deviation of the DK16 (total 8.7 km), the Ostroda Bypass. The two new roadways in the project intersect south of Ostroda, at the “South Ostroda” junction. Given the importance and tourist appeal of the city of Ostroda, as well as the system of small interconnected lakes and waterways crossed by the urban section of the S7 to be improved, particular attention has been paid to the environmental aspects of the project. The Group therefore confirms its strong commercial capability in securing orders and consolidates its presence in the infrastructure sector of the country where it is already carrying out construction works on the A1 highway and S8 expressway.
