Acciona, in a consortium with its Polish subsidiary Mostostal Warszawa, has secured a contract for the design and construction of a 10.3km stretch of S19 Expressway.

Under the terms of the contract, which is valued at PLN2.23bn (€500m), Acciona and Mostostal Warszawa will design and construct this road stretch between Rzeszów Południe junction and Babica in Southeast Poland.

Construction of the 10.3km stretch will involve operating a tunnel boring machine with a diameter of 15m to create a 2km-long underground double tunnel.

S19 Expressway is expected to  be one of the most technologically advanced infrastructure works being carried out in the country.

Mostostal Warszawa also signed a PLN635m (€142m) contract to design and build a 12km road between Zaluski and Modlin airport near Warsaw.

S7 road works, for which Acciona is responsible, will include the construction of a three-lane 12km highway, as well as two junctions and additional parallel service roads.

Recently, in consortium with Mostostal Warszawa, Acciona began the construction of the 11.5km stretch between Nisko Południe and Podgórze of the S19, under a contract worth PLN272.5m (€60m).

Acciona and Mostostal Warszawa are also developing the 15.3km Stalowa Wola bypass.

Carrying a value of PLN200m (€44m), this project is currently over 50% complete.

Recently, Mostostal Warszawa signed a contract for the design and construction of the Zegrze Pomorskie-Klanino section of Poland’s S11 highway.

This highway project, which covers 19.28km and is worth PLN478.3m (€105m), will link the central coast of the Baltic with Upper Silesia through Wielkopolska or Greater Poland.

In March last year, a consortium comprising Ferrovial, Acciona, and Lopesan won a €153m ($173m) contract to construct a section of highway on the island of Gran Canaria in Spain.
