Vienna-headquartered contractor Strabag SE has been awarded a contract worth some €111m to build a 19km dual carriageway between the city of Oradea (pictured) and the A3 motorway in Romania with a construction period of 24 months.
"Oradea is the economic and cultural centre of western Romania," said Strabag SE chief executive Thomas Birtel. "The motorway connection will better link the rapidly growing city to the primary road network and so contribute to further growth."
The contract comprises a dual carriageway with two lanes in each direction separated by a concrete step barrier as well as the construction of 12 buildings and the connection of existing country and state roads. Construction is scheduled to start in March 2022.
Strabag is currently building a section of the A3 motorway from Ungheni to TÃ¢rgu MureÈ™, and a section between Ungheni and Ogra was handed over in 2018.
