Strabag bags €111m contract to build motorway in Romania


Construction group Strabag has secured a contract, worth around €111m, to build motorway connection for Romanian economic centre Oradea.

The contract has been awarded by Romania’s National Company for Road Infrastructure Administration (CNAIR).

Strabag will build 18.96km-long motorway to link the city of Oradea and the A3 motorway, over a period of 24 months.

The scope of work includes a dual carriageway with two lanes in each direction. It will be separated by a concrete step barrier.

It also involves construction of 12 buildings and the connection of existing country and state roads.
The firm plans to commence construction work in March 2022.

Strabag CEO Thomas Birtel said: “Oradea is the economic and cultural centre of western Romania. The motorway connection will better link the rapidly growing city to the primary road network and so contribute to further growth.”

Strabag said that the contract allows it to further contribute to the expansion of transportation infrastructure in Romania.

Currently, the construction firm is building a section of the A3 motorway from Ungheni to Târgu Mureș. It has already completed a section between Ungheni and Ogra in 2018.

Last month, Strabag received a €99m contract from the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) to build 13.6km Chełm bypass road S12 east of Lublin near the border with Ukraine.

The bypass will comprise two carriageways, each with two lanes, as well as four on- and off-ramps.
It also includes 16 civil engineering structures, including bridges over the Uherka River and the Chełm–Włodawa railroad line.

Strabag will also build a highway service station, local service roads as well as environmental protection and road safety facilities along the route.
