Poland’s General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways has selected Ferrovial’s Polish subsidiary, Budimex, to build a section of the country’s Expressway S6.

The zl581m ($154m) contract will involve building a 16.3km road stretch between the cities of Luzino and Szemud in northern Poland.

Budimex will be responsible for building a four-lane highway and 25 separate engineering structures, with completion scheduled for the first quarter of 2025.

In a statement, Ferrovial said: “The contract is part of the Tri-City Metropolitan Bypass project, which includes the construction of a two-lane motorway approximately 31km long, to improve communication between the ports of Gdynia and Gdansk.”

The project’s benefits will include reduced travel times and vehicle maintenance costs for road users. It is also expected to improve road safety and have a positive environmental impact.

Last year, Ferrovial adopted the Horizon 24 Plan, which focuses on developing, building and operating sustainable infrastructure.

In September 2018, Budimex won two road contracts.

The first was a zl390m (€91m) contract for building the Tuszyn-Piotrków Trybunalski-Bełchatów section of the A1 motorway, in collaboration with Austria-based construction company Strabag.

The second was a zl271m (€64m) contract for designing and building the Podgórze-Kamień section of the S19 highway.

Budimex is currently working on the construction of several sections of Expressways S61 and S19 in Poland.
