MILAN, Sep 4 (Class Editori) - After the award of the maxi-order of 1,4 billions of dollars in Canada, the efforts of Salini Impregilo are now employed on Australia. The construction group led by Pietro Salini, according to what was learned from MF-Milano Finanza, is part of one of the three consortia admitted to the short list for a public-private partnership contract for the construction of a road link between the M80 Ring Road motorway and the Eastern Freeway in the city of Melbourne. The value of the order is between 4.7 and 6 billion dollars and also includes work on the twin tunnels under the Banyule Flats and the Yarra river, in addition to the construction of the Doncaster Busway, a project that includes 25 km of cycle and pedestrian paths and improvements in community facilities. This is only part of a much larger construction site, whose value should be around 10.6 billion dollars, making it the largest road transport project in the history of the State of Victoria.
The race promises to be fierce, given the names of the contestants present in the consortia. The Roman manufacturer is part of the Spark consortium, which includes GS Engineering and Construction, China Construction Oceania, Broadspectrum Australia, Capella Capital, John Laing Investments and Lend Lease Engineering.
