Kaurits has signed a contract with Estonian infrastructure company GRK Infra for earthworks along 10km of the Tallinn-Tartu Highway, from Võõbu to Anna.

Kaurits, a subsidiary of Estonian construction group Nordecon, will improve the road bed and install culverts along the section which is part of the 18km Võõbu-Mäo road construction project. Kaurits’s deal is worth around €9.5 million and work should be completed by the second half of next year.

The Kose-Võõbu section of Tallinn-Tartu Highway will be the first in Estonia with a 120kph speed limit. This past summer saw the opening of a new four-lane section of the Tallinn-Tartu Highway between Kose and Võõbu.

In addition, Tariston, which is also a subsidiary of Nordecon, has concluded a sales agreement for mineral products with GRK Infra in connection with the same Võõbu-Mäo project. Tariston's contract with GRK Infra is worth just over €3.2 million
