The Polish contract involves construction of a new section of the S-8 expressway and the contract in Romanis is for the completion of the Nădlac-Arad motorway, which provides a link with the Hungarian border.
Astaldi has a 90% stake in the €80m contract in Poland, which calls for the design and construction of 7km of dual-carriageway with three lanes in each direction, plus an emergency lane. The three-year contract also includes the construction of two interchanges and related access and services work. Astaldi will carry out the project in joint venture with Polish company PBDiM, with which it is already carrying out an €800m contract for Line 2 of the Warsaw Metro and a €340m contract for the Lodz railway project.
The €20m contract in Romania – in which Astaldi and Max Bögl each hold a 50% stake - involves the design and construction of works to complete a section of the Nădlac-Arad motorway, adjacent to the previous stretch, which is currently being carried out by Astaldi.
