Swedish company Skanska has secured a contract worth €77m from the National Highway Authority of the Czech Republic to construct a highway section in Staré Město.

The scope of work under the contract involves construction of 8.8-km-long highway section between Staré Město and Moravský Písek. It will also include nine bridges and two multi-level crossings.

The construction company stated that the project will be funded by the European Regional Development Fund, OP Integrated Infrastructure 2014-2020 and the state budget.

Construction work on the new highway section is anticipated to begin in August this year, with completion scheduled in 2024.

Skanska noted that the contract will be included in the order bookings for Europe for the third quarter of this year.

The contract includes the rehabilitation of sections of the Pulaski Skyway carrying Routes 1 and 9 in Jersey City as well as the structural rehabilitation and painting of 13 spans of the Skyway steel truss and superstructure.

It also includes bearings replacement and pier reconstruction.

Construction on the project commenced in June this year, with completion planned in December 2026.

Earlier this month, Skanska was awarded a contract worth $248m to make improvements to an existing corporate campus in Long Island, New York.

Construction work on the project is slated to be completed in February 2026.
