Spanish infrastructure and energy company Acciona, in consortium with its Polish subsidiary Mostostal Warszawa, has secured two contracts, worth €642m, to build the S19 and S7 expressways in Poland.

Under the first contract, worth PLN2.23bn (€500m), Acciona’s Polish subsidiary will be responsible for the design and construction of a 10.3km stretch of the S19 Expressway that runs from the Rzeszów Południe junction until Babica, in southeast Poland.

Upon completion, the S19 expressway project will become the country’s one of the most technologically advanced infrastructure works.

It involves the construction of a three-lane 12km highway, as well as two junctions and additional parallel service roads.

During the construction phase, two lanes are planned to be maintained in each direction to reduce inconvenience for drivers.

Furthermore, Acciona’s Polish subsidiary has been selected for the design and construction of the 12km road between Zaluski and Modlin airport near Warsaw. The contract is worth PLN635m (€142m).

Recently, Acciona, in consortium with Mostostal Warszawa, commenced the construction of the 11.5km stretch between NiskoPołudnie and Podgórze of the S19 expressway.

The firm is also developing the 15.3km Stalowa Wola bypass, which is now over 50% complete.

In a statement, Acciona said: “Mostostal Warszawa, recently signed the contract for the design and construction of the ZegrzePomorskie-Klanino section of Poland’s S11 highway, which will connect the central coast of the Baltic with Upper Silesia through Wielkopolska or Greater Poland, one of the country’s 16 provinces.”

In June this year, Acciona has agreed on a €560m project to construct a new children’s hospital (Hospital del Niño) in Panama City, Panama for Panama’s Ministry of Health (Minsa).
