(ANSA) - ROME - Astaldi Group has been awarded the contract for the extension to the Warsaw underground Line 2 (Poland) worth 209 million euros. The contract comes after the central line of the same underground was built by Astaldi Group in March 2015.

The group itself reported the news, underlining that this contract is ''further evidence of the company's experience in transport infrastructure'' and ''strengthens the group's presence in Poland''. The new contract includes the executive design and construction of the east section of the underground, which is approximately 3 km long. Moreover, it includes the connection with the central section of the line, as well as civil and railway facilities and all the works related to the infrastructure. The whole project is expected to be completed within 36 months, and the work will start in early 2016. The main contractor is Metro Warsaw, public company which runs the underground railway in the Polish capital city on behalf of the Municipality of Warsaw. The work will be financed with European and local funds. In Poland, Astaldi Group is at the moment in charge of building the International Airport 'John Paul II' of Krakow-Balice, about 60 km of highway, 2 railway lines, and a Waste-to-Energy plant in Bydgoszcz-Torun.
