Eurovia, a road building subsidiary of French-based Vinci, has won two contracts to design and build two motorways in Poland, worth a total of €120 million.

One contract is the S3 motorway, south of the city of Legnica, near the border with the Czech Republic. It will see the construction of a 19.73km section of dual carriageway and 12 civil engineering structures. This road forms part of the international E65 road in the trans-European corridor, and serves the whole of western Poland as well as a number of large cities in the country. The work will start in April 2016 and is expected to last 30 months, excluding winter periods.

The second contract relates to the building of the bypass for the city of Szczecinek in Western Pomerania in the north-west of Poland. This stretch of dual carriageway is located on the route of the S11 motorway that will eventually link the north of the country at Koszalin with the urban area of Katowice in the south. Works are expected to last 34 months, excluding winter periods.
