FCC to build a toll road in Romania for 161 million euro

Romania's Transport Ministry has awarded FCC the contract to build a new toll road section of Pan-European Corridor IV between the cities of Timisoara and Arad in western Romania. The project is worth a total of 161.2 million euro.

The project includes the construction of 32.3 km of toll road with a total width of 26 metres; it will have four 3.75-meter wide lanes, two 3-metre wide safety lanes and a 4-metre wide median.

The project also calls for the construction of 31 bridges, 13 culverts and a services area with operations and maintenance buildings and a police station. The project is expected to be completed in 24 months.

Other projects in Romania 

In 2008, FCC was awarded the contract by the Romanian Roads Authority to build the Constanza bypass, and it also obtained the contract to widen and resurface the Timisoara-Lugoj section of the NR6 National Highway. 

In 2007, the company won road building and widening contracts: the DN1C Livada-Dej-Cluj County Limit, the DN66 Filasi-Petrosanti and the Bucharest north bypass (which includes a 240-metre cable-stayed bridge). Late in 2004, that same Administration awarded the company the contract to resurface 30 kilometres of the DN1C highway, between Cluj and Livada in northern Romania.

It is also building the Basarab viaduct in Bucharest and a bridge over the Danube, connecting Bulgaria and Romania, plus the bridge's access roads. 

Through Austrian subsidiary ALPINE, it has also obtained two environmental contracts to install and plumb two landfills in the Dambovita region of Romania. In Bucharest, the company is building the new headquarters for Petrom, the largest oil and gas production company in south-eastern Europe, as well as a cable-stayed bridge. ALPINE has recently opened its third Romanian office, in Timisoara, in order to improve its coverage of the country.

FCC Construcción has a backlog of close to 800 million euro in projects in Romania, and Austrian subsidiary ALPINE has a backlog of approximately 200 million euro in Romania.
