Egis wins new Polish A2 toll motorway contract

French infrastructure engineering firm, Egis, has been awarded a new contract for the operation and maintenance of the second phase of the A2 motorway in Poland. With the addition of the second phase, the A2 will become a 255km-long route between Swiecko, at the German border, and Konin – an important link in the Berlin-Poznan-Warsaw Trans-European highway. Egis Road Operation – through its Polish subsidiary Autostrada Eksploatacja (AESA) – has been selected to operate this section.

In 2000, AESA was awarded the operation and maintenance of the first phase of the motorway, which is a 150km-long stretch from Konin to Nowy Tomysl (west of Poznan). The 150km section was brought into service in three successive stretches of 50km each, between January 2003 and October 2004. After long discussions with the Polish government, the concessionaire Autostrada Wielkopolska (AWSA) concluded all agreements in July 2008 for the second stage of the A2 motorway, namely the remaining 105km between Nowy Tomysl and Swiecko. AWSA awarded the operation and maintenance contract for this section to AESA.

Two operation and maintenance centers will be built on the new segment, as well as six new interchanges, three rebuilt interchanges, 10 service areas, 86 bridges, seven toll stations and one mainline toll plaza. The new section is expected to start operations in November 2011 in anticipation of the European Football Championships, which will start in Poland in June 2012. This new operation and maintenance contract comes in addition to the 60km of the A4 motorway between Katowice and Krakow that Egis has operated since March 2000 through its subsidiary Stalexport Transroute Autostrada (STA).

Egis is the largest toll motorway operator in Poland with 315km of roads under its control.
