A major Swiss road contract has been won by a consortium that includes Webuild Group subsidiary CSC Costruzioni. The €157 million highway maintenance contract is for the N2 Gentilino-Lamone (Lot 202) package. This is the biggest road package of its kind in 30 years in the Canton of Ticino, Switzerland. CSC will lead the consortium with a 35% stake. The other partners include Implenia, Edilstrada, Matteo Muttoni Costruzioni and Casada.

Commissioned by the Federal Roads Office (USTRA), the contract is part of the “USTRA EP 28 Gentilino-Lamone” project to modernise and carry out extraordinary maintenance work on a section of the N highway that measures just over 6km. The stretch runs from the north portal of the Gentilino tunnel to Lamone and includes an interchange at the north of Lugano. Lot 202 comprises the main civil works such as rebuilding and modernising 27 structures, underpasses, bridges and related works. The work is to last nearly four years.

Part of the project will be challenging as it will be carried out without interrupting traffic. Sustainability is a key factor in the work and around 80% of the asphalt to be used in the repaving of the stretch of highway will come from recycled materials.

CSC is involved in a series of highway projects between Milan and Gotthard, including the maintenance and adjustment of nearly 2km of highway between Chiasso and Lugano, also in the Canton of Ticino.
