The consortium Manin - Váhostav-Sk - Strabag- Bogl a Krysl, represented by the company Váhostav-Sk based on a power of attorney agreement, will construct the second stretch of the D1 highway between Sverepec and Vrtizer between the 4.9th and 9.6th kilometer. The construction of a 4.7-kilometer stretch should cost Sk3.778 billion without VAT, which is Sk805.1 million less than the order's original estimated value.

The National Highway Company (NDS) as the construction's procurer announced in the EU Official Journal that the contractor was picked in a public tender, in which six bids were accepted. The evaluation criterion was the lowest price. The share of subcontracts represents 6.14 percent. Earlier this month, the Ministry of Transport, Posts, and Telecommunications published a list of six applicants who has showed interest in participating in a tender for construction and operation of selected five stretches of the D1-highway between Žilina and Prešov within the first package of Public-Private-Partnership Projects.

Ministry's spokeswoman Eva Benešová said that an eleven-member commission is currently examining whether individual applicants meet conditions for participation in the tender in compliance with the announcement. A concession agreement in the first PPP project will be granted for project documentation, construction, funding, operation and maintenance of the D1 highway's five stretches: Dubná Skala-Turany, Turany-Hubová, Hubová-Ivachnová, Janovce-Jablonov and Fričovce-Svinia, with a total length of 74.84 kilometers. The concession will expire in thirty years at the most.

The tender terms, however, do not specify the estimated net value of the concession. The Transport Ministry said some time ago that it was Sk49.1 billion without VAT. SITA
