Skanska to build Wroclaw bypass

Skanska is to build a bypass at Wroclaw in southwestern Poland. The order value amounts to about 46m euros, which will be included in order bookings for the company’s second quarter.

The client is the local road and railway authority, and the contract is for the first construction stage of an eastern bypass connecting to the main road to Warsaw.

It will comprise a new 5.6km road with overpasses, pedestrian footpaths, bike paths, animal crossings and three bridges over the Oder and Olawa Rivers. The bridges will be about 100 to 290m in length.

The contract also includes extensive landscaping work with planting and the construction of ponds for surface run-off water. Works are planned to begin in the summer and completion is scheduled for January 2013.
