Webuild and its subsidiary Cossi Costruzioni have been awarded a contract valued at €284 million to build a section (Lot 1: Part 1-2) of the Pedemontana Piemontese highway in northern Italy. Commissioned by ANAS of Gruppo FS Italiane, the contract is the latest contribution being made by the Group to the development of Italy’s infrastructure.
Webuild and Cossi will be responsible for the design and construction of approximately 15km of highway with two lanes in both directions between the towns of Masserano and Ghemme in the Piedmont region. The work will include six viaducts and six overpasses with a combined length of 1.5km. The highway section will improve traffic circulation by creating a link between the towns of Santhià, Biella and Gattinara near the A4 Turin-Milan highway and the town of Ghemme near the A26 Genoa Voltri-Gravellona Toce highway.
