Tender to build highway announced

THE NATIONAL highway company (NDS) will begin a public tender on October 1 to find a supplier for the first part of the Mengusovce - Janovce highway. The NDS estimates that the construction of the eight-kilometre strip will cost between Sk4 billion (€100 million) and Sk4.7 billion (€122 million), the SITA news agency reported.

Construction works on the motorway, tunnel, bridges, supporting and retaining walls, as well as engineering networks, should start on December 1, 2005. The NDS estimates that the project will be finished by December 2008.

This is the third planned tender concerning the highway. The previous was cancelled by the public procurement authority, ÚVO.

The stretch is a part of a 26--kilometre-long highway. Works on the other stretches started in May.
