€410 million Slovakia road contract awarded

17 April 2014

A €410 million contract to construct 13.4km of motorway in Slovakia has been awarded by the country’s national motorway authority.

The lead contractor for the project is Salini Impregilo, with a share of 75%. The contract is for the Lietavská Lúčka to Višňové and Dubná Skala section of the D1 motorway in northern Slovakia, including five overpasses with an overall length of 2.5km, as well as a 7.5km twin-tube tunnel.

This section of motorway is part of transportation corridor five of the Trans-European Networks (TEN), connecting Bratislava in Solvakia with Uzhhorod in Ukraine. The road is financed by the European Union through the European Investment Bank and the Slovakian government.

Salini Impregilo said the contract would allow it to break ground in a new market. Work is scheduled to start in the second half of this year, lasting around five and a half years.
