Vienna / Bratislava, 23 November 2016 – A construction consortium involving PORR has been chosen to build a 5.6 km section of the D3 motorway in northern Slovakia. The contract is being realised on behalf of the state motorway company NDS a.s. and is scheduled to be completed after 48 months of construction. The order is worth EUR 239m, PORR holds a stake of 34%.
“Technical know-how is needed during the construction of this motorway section. With our strong joint venture partners, we are optimally positioned to deliver. Once more, we can prove our experience in the construction of large transport infrastructure projects. That fits in perfectly with our skills profile. At the same time, the tender confirms our confidence in the Slovak market,” said Karl-Heinz Strauss, CEO of PORR.
The project comprises the construction of the roadway, 19 bridges, several retaining walls and more than 11 km of noise barriers. This section of motorway forms part of the Pan-European Transport Corridor and will improve the transport connection to the country’s northern neighbour of Poland. The geological conditions of the land mean that drainage measures are being taken and retaining walls erected ahead of construction. The section traverses several deep valleys, which will be connected by appropriate bridge structures. The geological conditions will require the carriageways in one area to be constructed at different elevations with a maximum horizontal separation of 4 m.
