A joint venture (JV) led by Italian construction firm Astaldi has won a contract worth €171m to upgrade a section of the N-7 Warsaw Wschodnia Osobowa-Dor ohusk railway line in Poland.
The contract has been awarded by PKP (Polskie Linie Kolejowe), the state-owned company responsible for managing Poland’s railway infrastructure. Astaldi will execute the contract along with its JV partners - Zhol Zhondeushi, PBDiM and CLF.
The scope of the contract involves demolition, reconstruction and extension of the N-7 railway line for a section, which is about 68km long (Lot C, from 107.283km to 175.850km) and includes Lublin station.
The project also includes the construction of level crossings, new service and access roads, and some minor related works.
Work on the project will last for approximately two years. The project will be financed using European funding and state budget.
Furthermore, the contract forms part of the group’s commercial strategy that aims to strengthen Astaldi’s presence in Central Europe.
