Poland will use the public-private partnership model for four road sections worth in total €2.32 billion.
The roads are the S6 running from Koszalin to the DK6 at Bozepole Wielkie, the S10 from Bydgoszcz to Torun, the western ring-road of Szczecin and the ring-road around the TriCity metropolis.
Tenders will be issued likely by the end of the year or the first quarter 2019, according to Polish media. The decision to adopt the PPP model for infrastructure projects is partly a response to the reduction of financial support from the European Union.
Meanwhile, Budimex and Strabag have been awarded a €116 million contract to build one of four A1 motorway sections which will run through the Lodzkie voivodeship (region). The 15.8km section stretches from Tuszyn to Piotrkow Trybunalski Poludnie and construction will take around 32 months.
