The North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) has awarded Webber, a subsidiary of Ferrovial Agroman in Texas (USA), the construction of the segment 4 interchange of the Texas Tollway SH 121.
The contract has a budget of US 220 million dollars (about 162 million euros) and is the largest contract in Webbers history. Webber will build six main lanes, three in each direction, as well as electronic toll collection gantries. In addition, the subsidiary of Ferrovial Agroman will develop structures to link the SH 121 with other connecting roads and service roads. The construction will begin in November and is due for completion in January 2011.
The SH 121 is divided into five segments, which are currently at different stages of development. Segments 1 and 2 are already open to traffic, while the third will be completed in January 2010. Segment 4, which is to be built by Webber, will connect the highway with the U.S. 75.
W.W.Webber is one of the leading construction companies in Texas and has been part of Ferrovial Agroman since 2005. The U.S. firm registered sales of 158.5 million euros in the first half of 2008, an increase of 21.7% on the previous year when excluding the effect of exchange rates. The backlog at the end of June stood at 519.2 million euros.
