The contract was awarded by the Slovakian Motorway Administration (NDS). Work will start in May 2015 and is scheduled to take 24 months.
"The Slovakian one is an important project market for Porr,” said Porr AG CEO Karl-Heinz Strauss. “For more than five years, our Slovakian subsidiary Porr sro has been successfully implementing major infrastructure projects - alas, until now, only with local partners. The erection of the Triblavina motorway junction is the first one, for which we were commissioned as the sole contractor by a public client in Slovakia. For us, this is a great mark of confidence in our extensive know-how and a big chance to further strengthen our position on the Slovakian infrastructure market."
The new motorway junction will be built some 20 km north-east of Bratislava. The project includes the new construction of the ‘Triblavina crossroads’ as well additional lanes on the existing D1 motorway. A new underpass will cross below the motorway and traffic will be directed onto the new lanes. In addition, the project involves two large roundabouts and two connecting roads together with noise barriers and minor bridges.
