Bucharest/Vienna, 15 April 2019 – PORR has won the tender for the design and build of lot 1 of the motorway from Sibiu to Pitesti with a length of 13.17 km.

"This latest road construction tender is already the third large-scale motorway construction project realised by PORR in Romania. Our lot is the first section of the route from Sibiu to Pitesti, an East-West link of critical importance to Romania in terms of traffic", said PORR CEO Karl-Heinz Strauss.

The general contractor contract involves the design and construction of the four-lane section from Sibiu to Boita in the heart of Romania. The contract covers the erection of twelve bridge structures as part of the motorway as well as a bridge over the road. The most impressive bridge is a 650 m-long viaduct over a valley.
