With 60% progress, the 16 km double carriageway motorway to the south of Poznan is proceeding at a fast pace. Toto’s technicians and workers, both Italian and Polish, work hard on all fronts, from earth movements to the finishing of works of art, particularly delicate and complex interventions in a wooded area that the European Union has included in the Natura 2000 network.
By the end of the year, we are expected to complete all reinforced concrete works, a total of 17, and a large part of the finishings. In particular, the launch of the 200-metre-long MS6 steel viaduct has recently been completed and the other 700-metre steel structure, the MS7 viaduct, is almost complete.
Also by 2017, the earth movements of the main body of the highway and about 80% of the white pavements will be completed, on which about 80,000 tons of asphalt will be laid before the winter break. In parallel to these activities, drainage of the road body, rainwater collection tanks and lighting of the junctions are being carried out.
All these activities are preparatory to the conclusion, scheduled for 2018, of a decisive section for the completion of the north-south ridge of the State, near the connection node to the great east-west corridor, the A2 motorway.
