Ten post dostępny jest także w języku: polski
Strabag signed with the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways an agreement worth PLN 442.2 million gross. Within the framework of the contract, carried out in the “design and build” formula, an almost 17-kilometre section of the national road No. 61 will be built along a new route, bypassing Pułtusk from the west.
Within 36 months (not including winter periods), the works will include
- 15.1 km of a dual carriageway road of the GP class with two lanes in each direction,
- 1.7 km of a single carriageway road of the GP class with one lane in each direction,
- 2.9 km of the DK57 road section with one lane in each direction.
The new section will have 4 road junctions: Kacice, Pułtusk – South, Pułtusk – North and Lipa, where the DK57 towards Maków Mazowiecki will start.
The existing roads will also be reconstructed in collision with the DK61. There will be 16 engineering structures and 5 culverts with an ecological function (animal crossings), as well as a road circuit with buildings.
The new bypass will allow taking transit out of the town of Pułtusk, which will significantly relieve the local traffic on this “bottleneck” section of the route connecting Warsaw with Mazury and Podlasie regions, which is characterised by heavy traffic especially in summer.
In June this year. Strabag also signed contracts for the construction of bypasses of: Chełm within the expressway S12 and Słupsk within the expressway S6.
