The project concerns the third and last section of the A2 motorway, connecting Minsk Mazowiecki and Siedlce, namely a 13 km section between the Groszki and Grezow junctions. The contract value amounted to PLN 530.8m.

The contractor will be responsible for the preparation of the construction project as well as obtaining a decision needed to begin construction work. After obtaining the decision, Stecol will undertake the construction of a 13 km dual roadway section of the A2 motorway with two lanes and a reserve for the construction of a third lane in the future.
