Czech Republic : Eurovia wins a contract to refurbish a railway line section east of Prague in Czech Republic
Publish Date : 13-Jun-2019
The Czech railway infrastructure administration has selected Eurovia as part of a joint venture with Elektrizace eleznic Praha to refurbish the 6 km railway section between Lys nad Labem and elkovice northeast of Prague, which serves 15,000 passengers per day. The works, which have a total value of 60 million, are set for completion in June 2022. Eurovia has an 85.6% share.
The project notably includes reconstruction of the bridge over the Elbe, renovation of the track, embankments, sanitation, platforms at the elkovice - Jiina stops, and installation of noise barriers and communication and safety equipment.
The line runs through the Psiny u Bystiek and Kran - Hrabkovy tn biodiversity-protected nature areas, which have springs that supply Prague with drinking water. The work will therefore be carried out from the railway line with no access through these areas.
Eurovia, which has substantial operations in Central Europe, generated revenue of more than 500 million in the Czech Republic in 2018. Within the country, Eurovia notably won the contract, in June of last year, to build a 14.7 km section of the east-west D35 motorway between C asy and Ostrov.
