Budimex wins a 20km section of S61 from Wysokie junction to Raczki

First published16/02/2018

Polish contractor Budimex has won a tender to build a 20km-long section of the S61 dual carriageway in Poland.

The section runs from the Wysokie junction to Raczki, the national highways authority GDDKiA announced.

Budimex bid just over €484 million for the 29-month design-build contract.

Last summer, the Italian contractor Impressa Pizzarotti picked up a deal for 24km of the S61 from Suwalki to the border with Lithuania for around €144.6 million, according to media reports.

The S61 is part of the greater European route E 67 running from Prague in the Czech Republic to Helsinki in Finland by way of Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. It goes via Prague, Warsaw, Riga, Tallinn and – by ferry – Helsinki, a length of nearly 1,700km.

It is also known as the Via Baltica between Warsaw and Tallinn, a distance of 970km. Most of the route is not motorway but some sections, such as the one in Poland, are dual carriageway.
