Ferrovial Agroman's Polish subsidiary Budimex signed two major contracts today: one to design and build a railway line in Gdansk, worth over 140 million euro, and another to build a section of the A4 highway between the Krzyz and Debica Pustynia junctions, for 192 million euro.
Ferrovial, through Polish subsidiary Budimex, signed two contracts today worth a total of 1.380 billion zlotys (over 332 million euro). The first contract was awarded to a consortium comprising Budimex (95%) and Ferrovial Agroman (5%) to design and build a railway line in Gdansk. The project, worth 582.2 million zlotys (over 140 million euro), is expected to be completed in April 2015. The railway line will improve the connection between Gdansk and Gdynia with Lech Walesa International Airport. Those two cities together with Sopot comprise Tricity, the largest urban area in northern Poland, home to more than 1 million people. The contract includes the construction of a 17-kilometre railway line between Gdansk Wrzeszcz station and the Gdynia-Koscierzyna line and a 1.4-kilometre junction with the latter. It involves the construction of a control building, a turnaround wye, 16 railway and 8 road bridges, 8 stations, 5 overpasses as well as pedestrian footpaths and fauna crossings. Budimex, in consortium with Ferrovial Agroman, upgraded the Gdynia G?ówna Osobowa railway station and is currently improving a 50-kilometre section of railway line 9, in northern Poland, as part of a project worth more than 168 million euro.
