Ferrovial bags $301m highway contract in Texas, US


Ferrovial’s US-based construction subsidiary Webber has been awarded a contract, worth $301m, by the Texas Department of Transportation for the reconstruction of 12km of the SL12 highway in Dallas.  
Under the contract, Webber will be responsible for the reconstruction of existing Interchanges between State Loop 12, State Spur 482, State Highway 114 and 183.

The scope of work also involves widening of existing main lanes and construction of 32 new bridges.

Webber will also undertake additional work include grading, subgrade stabilisation, drainage, water, sanitary sewer, flatwork, signals, illumination, ITS, signing, pavement markings, landscape and irrigation.

Webber heavy civil division president Josh Goyne said: “Webber is excited to win this project; a project which will allow commuters an easier time navigating this area with improved connectivity and the ability to avoid the traffic congestion normally seen here during peak traffic times.”

Ferrovial said that the reconstruction of the section would improve the connectivity of the area while reducing the travel times. It is scheduled for completion by 2024.

Recently, Ferrovial’s subsidiary secured construction and building contracts, worth $255m in total, for the renovation of the main roadway and service roads of the IH10, as well as construction and renovation work for several school districts.

Last year, Ferrovial, through a consortium led by its toll road subsidiary Cintra Infraestructuras, received a $910m contract to build and operate a new extension (segment 3C) to the North Tarrant Express in Texas, US.

The consortium, named NTE Mobility Partners Segments 3, includes the Meridiam fund and pension fund management firm APG.

Ferrovial Agroman is responsible for designing and building the road segment. Work involves the construction of an 11km stretch of road from Heritage Trace Parkway near US 81/287 to Eagle Parkway in Denton County.
