Vinci has won a contract to design, finance, construct, operate and maintain the 24km western Strasbourg bypass in France.
The 54-year concession contract has been awarded by the Ministry for Ecology, Sustainable Development, Transport and Housing.
Estimated to cost about €500m, the project will include the construction of a dual two-lane carriageway section to connect the A4/A35 in the north with the A352/A35 junction in the south.
The design-build works will be delivered by a joint venture between Dodin Campenon Bernard, Vinci Construction Terrassement, Eurovia, Vinci Construction France and Vinci Energies, and are expected to be completed within 56 months.
Engineering work for the project will be carried out by Ingérop, CBDI and IUR.
Upon completion of construction, the operation, toll collection and maintenance of the infrastructure will be done by a Vinci Autoroutes subsidiary.
The project will be completely funded by Vinci, with no public subsidy. It is anticipated to create about 1,000 direct and indirect jobs.
