FCC to build two sections of the Pan-European Corridor in Serbia

FCC, through Austrian subsidiary ALPINE, has signed a 30 million euro contract to build two sections of the Pan-European Corridor in Serbia. The foundation stone has already been laid, and construction is to take approximately two years.
The customer in this case is a company created specifically for this project by the Serbian government. ALPINE will build the two sections of road with World Bank funding.
 
ALPINE was selected as the superior bidder for two of the three sections of road that were tendered.
 
The contract covers construction of 15 km of highway and seven bridges ranging in length from 50 to 500 metres.
The main components of the project are the 5.8-km bypass around the city of Dimitrovgrad (eastern Serbia) and another 8.6 km section to the Bulgarian border.
 
The ceremony to lay the foundation stone was attended by Milutin Mrkonjiæ, Serbia's Infrastructure Minister; Slavica Dukic-Dejanoviæ, the President of the Serbian Parliament; Jane Armitage, World Bank Regional General Manager; and Dietmar Aluta-Oltyan, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ALPINE Bau GmbH.
 
ALPINE operates worldwide. With a construction output of 3.365 billion in 2009 and a staff of over 15,500, ALPINE is the second-largest construction group in Austria.
