Skanska secures Poland's major road- building project

 Swedish construction and development firm Skanska has secured a lucrative £490m contract to complete the second phase of a major road-building project in Poland.

 The GTC consortium, which includes Skanska Infrastructure Development, John Laing Infrastructure, NDI Autostrada and Intertoll Infrastructure Development, will start work on the four-lane A1 between Czerniewice near Torun and Nowe Marzy.

 The consortium will be responsible for the financing, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the motorway for the next three decades.

 The project will see the construction of a 62km road to Nowe Marzy and a 2,000-metre bridge. 

President and chief executive of Skanska, Johan Karlström said: “We have now secured financing and all necessary permits for the second phase. This means that we have obtained a major assignment for the Polish construction operation and yet another confirmation of our success in public-private partnerships.

 “It is also highly satisfying to get the opportunity to contribute to safer and better traffic in Poland.”
