The second lowest bid, submitted by Doprastav, was reportedly €382.8 million, while the third, submitted by a consortium consisting of Dúha and Impregilo, was €409.8 million, TASR wrote.

The state had originally assumed that the bids would be up to three times higher.

Construction should take about six years. When completed, Višňové will be the longest tunnel in Slovakia.
