Strabag to modernise coastal highway in Libya
A joint venture led by Austrian construction giant Strabag has been awarded a new infrastructure contract in Libya worth € 104 million. It is the fifth large order for Strabag in the region after the ongoing Tajura infrastructure project as well as the rehabilitation of the airport road in Tripoli.
Strabag is carrying out the construction in cooperation with a local partner. The works comprise the rehabilitation of the coastal highway between Ras Ejdir and Garaboulli as well as the construction of the Tripoli Western Access. In total, 103 km of dual-carriage and 97 km of single-carriage roadway will be built. Work began in December 2010 and is scheduled for completion in June 2013. Strabag's share is 60 % (about € 62 million).
Strabag won its first large order in Libya, with a total volume of about € 430 million, in 2008. Under that contract, the company is working to modernise the urban infrastructure of Tajura, a suburb of Tripoli, by 2012.
