Budimex, a Polish subsidiary of Spanish infrastructure firm Ferrovial, has won two new road contracts worth zl660m (€155m).

Budimex will construct the Tuszyn-Piotrków Trybunalski-Bełchatów section of the A1 motorway for zl390m (€91m) in collaboration with Strabag.

Part of the Trans-European Transport Networks (TEN-T) and the Gdańsk–Brno/Bratislava–Vienna Motorway axis, the A1 links the city of Gdańsk with the Czech Republic.

Once completed, the new section will also provide new exits to Warsaw from the road to Łódź. The 16km-long section will be built by Budimex and is scheduled to be completed over the next 32 months.

“In July, Ferrovial secured a €273m contract to build the Rutas del Loa road project in Chile’s Atacama region.”

Under the second zl271m (€64m) contract, Budimex will be responsible for designing and building the Podgórze-Kamień section of the S19 highway. Work is expected to complete in 34 months.

This 10.5km stretch forms part of the Via Carpathia and links Podgórze with Kamień. The construction of this section of road is part of the S19 Nisko Południe-Sokołów Małopolskie Północ road project.

Additionally, the company will be accountable for designing and building a two-lane highway with emergency lanes. Work involves junctions with existing roads, bridges, overpasses, animal crossings, green areas and sound barriers.
