Skanska cheapest bidder for D3 near Žilina, Doprastav consortium for D1

The cheapest bid for constructing a more than four-kilometre stretch of the D3 motorway – Žilina-Strážov and Žilina-Brodno – has been presented by Skanska at around €190 million. The second-cheapest offer came from Eurovia – almost €255 million – ahead of a consortium of Váhostav-SK, Doprastav and Strabag – slightly less than €259 million. The envelopes containing bids for constructing this D3 stretch were opened November 21. The state had assessed that the stretch may cost some €284 million, the TASR newswire wrote. It is expected that the construction work may take three years. Financed from the state budget, the project includes four bridges and a 2.2-kilometre long tunnel called Považský Chlmec. Apart from the tunnel, another difficult section is a 1.4-kilometre long bridge to be constructed over the Hričovská Priehrada water reservoir. The state expects that 8,800 cars per day may travel this stretch in 2041.

A consortium of companies composed of Doprastav, Váhostav-SK, Strabag and Metrostav has offered the cheapest bid to construct a more than 11-kilometre stretch of the D1 motorway, Hričovske Podhradie-Lietavská Lúčka, for €427 million, TASR informed. The second-cheapest bid was presented by a consortium of Alpine, Texo Partner, Tubau and Doprastav Export – €463 million.

The state had originally expected that the construction might cost €487.6 million. The project should take four years to complete. It is set to include 11 bridges and two tunnels (Ovčiarske – 2.47 km and Žilina – 687 metres). It is being assessed that 30,420 cars per day should use this stretch of road in 2038.
