• €255 million contract;
• State-of-the-art infrastructure project.
This new 4.2 km section will link Strážov and Brodno on the outskirts of Žilina in the northern part of the country. The project includes the construction of four engineering structures: a 2.2 km tunnel and three bridges, one of which is a 1.4 km viaduct across the Hričovská dam. The contract also covers a large number of ancillary works, including restoration of secondary road networks, a variety of drainage works and the installation of all required motorway equipment such as emergency call boxes, met stations, variable message boards, ice warning and video surveillance systems. About 500 people will be working on the project for a period of three years.
