Colas roads in Hungary
By Sandy Guthrie05 January 2018
Three road and motorway contracts in the north east of Hungary worth a total of €330 million have been awarded to Colas’ Hungarian subsidiaries.
The construction of a new section of the M30 motorway will link the city of Miskolc to the Slovakian border. Stretching 24.2km between Szikszó and Encs, the section includes two interchanges and 21 engineering structures.
It is worth a total of €242 million, and work on this project is due to begin in August 2018 after a design phase. It will be completed in three years.
The other contracts are for the construction of two new contiguous sections on the M25 South motorway, northeast of Budapest. Section 1, with a length of 7.1km, is worth €61 million, while the second section at 7.5km long, will be undertaken as part of a consortium with Hungarian construction company HE-DO. The project value to Colas is 50% – €27 million.
The three projects are funded by the European Union, and Colas is a subsidiary of the French-based Bouygues group.
