The Astaldi Group has been awarded a €209M contract to extend Line 2 of the Warsaw metro in Poland. The award follows Astaldi’s construction of the same line’s central section completed in March 2015.
The new contract calls for the executive design and the construction of the route’s eastern section for a total of approximately 3km, from the Dworzec Wileński Station to the stabling tracks past Station C-18, featuring twin-tube tunnels and 3 underground stations. The tunnels are to be excavated using the two TBMs that have already been employed for the boring of the first section of the line. The contract also calls for building the link with the line’s central section, as well as the civil and railway systems, superstructure, and all related works. The works are planned to be completed in 36 months, beginning in early 2016.
The works are commissioned by Metro Warszawskie Sp.z o.o., the public company in charge of the operation of the underground on behalf of the Municipality of Warsaw. The works will be financed with European funds and through the local budget.
