STRABAG SE Awarded Two Road Construction Contracts in Romania

* Rehabilitation and upgrade of national roads DN14 and DN15A
* Combined value of both contracts around € 106 million

At the end of January, STRABAG, Central and Eastern Europe’s largest construction company, signed the contracts to rehabilitate and upgrade national roads DN14 and DN15A in Romania. The combined value of both contracts totals around € 106 million.
The planning and construction works comprise the widening and improvement of the existing road network, the rehabilitation of bridges, and the installation of safety facilities. The works will take place on DN14 between Sibiu and Sighişoara and on DN15A between Târgu Mureş and Sărăţel. Altogether, STRABAG will rehabilitate 150 km of national road. Construction will begin in April 2011 and is scheduled for completion in March 2013.
Dr. Hans Peter Haselsteiner is pleased with the new contracts: “Romania’s transportation infrastructures are in the middle of an upswing thanks to state investments. Just last summer, we were awarded the contract to rehabilitate DN67B and in autumn, we won the highway project Deva Orastie.”
The projects DN14 and DN15A are part of the sixth rehabilitation programme of national roads in Romania and are financed by funds from the European Investment Bank and from the national budget.
