Strabag has been awarded a €62m ($76m) road contract by Romania’s national road construction agency CNADNR.

In a joint venture with two Romanian road construction companies, STRABAG will carry out rehabilitation work, which involves modernising 188.2km of the national road DN 67B.

The work is expected to begin in 2010 and will last for a period of 36 months.

The Austria-based company said its share amounts to 70% of the total value of the project, estimated at €89m ($109m).
