Skanska-led consortium to upgrade Prague line


The Prague national rail authority recently awarded an $88.4 million contract to a consortium comprising Skanska and Vinci Group subsidiary SSZ to upgrade a portion of a Czech Republic line to accommodate high-speed trains.

Scheduled to be complete in three years, the project includes updating two existing tracks and constructing a third along a 5.6-mile track section, and connecting the section to a new line Skanska is building in Prague under a separate contract. The consortium also will renovate several bridges and implement a noise protection system.
