Astaldi’s Warsaw metro win

By Chris Sleight30 October 2009

A consortium led by Astaldi has won the PLZ 3,38 billion (€ 795 million) contract for the construction of Line 2 of the Warsaw Metro. The contract signing follows the provisional award of the work on April 29.

The project will involve the construction of some 6 km of new underground railway between Rondo Daszynskiego in the city centre to Dworzec Wilenski in the northeast suburbs, on the other side of the River Wisla. The scheme will include seven stations.

Astaldi's consortium includes Poland's PBIDM and Turkey's Gulermak. Gulermak and Astaldi are currently also working together on the construction of the new underground rail network in Istanbul.

Completion of Warsaw's Line 2 is expected in 2013.
