Poland awards EUR 233 million infrastructure contract

Poland’s rail infrastructure manager, PKP PLK, selected Budimex to upgrade two sections of Line 7, which links Warsaw and Dorohusk with the Ukrainian border. The two contracts are worth a total of PLN 986 million (EUR 233 million).
The modernisation of the first section, which is 51.7 km long, runs from Pilawa to Dęblin is scheduled to be completed in 22 months. Budimex will install new rails and overhead power lines, create a control system and build or upgrade 38 structures, including bridges, overpasses, underpasses, tunnels and sewers. It will also build new platforms that are adapted to persons with reduced mobility, and buildings for rail traffic management and track maintenance.
For the Otwock – Pilawa section, which is 30 km long, Ferrovial Agroman is participating in this contract alongside Budimex. The two companies will upgrade 74 km of track and modernize the stations in Otwock, Celestynów and Pilawa. They will also build 18 platforms, 87 sidings and two signalling posts, upgrade 22 structures (bridges, passes and tunnels) and 12 level crossings and modernize the electrical system, overhead lines and water and sewer infrastructure. Work is expected to be completed in 2020.
