HOCHTIEF Infrastructure Austria has received the contract for one of the most important roadway construction projects in Lower Austria. In a joint venture with ALPINE Bau CZ a.s., HOCHTIEF will expand the A5 North/Weinviertel motorway in Lower Austria. The contract for the forth construction lot of the A5 in the value of around EUR 48 million was awarded by the Austrian road construction company Asfinag Baumanagement GmbH. Fifty percent of the contract amount will go to HOCHTIEF. The road section is planned to be opened to traffic in December 2017. After a construction period of approximately 28 months, all of the work is to be completed by the summer of 2018.

The A5 North/Weinviertel motorway runs through the northeast of Austria from the Schrick junction through Wilfersdorf, Walterskirchen to Poysbrunn in the direction of the Czech border. The forth construction lot primarily encompasses the construction of a 6.6-kilometer-long route between Walterskirchen and Poysbrunn, eleven bridges, noise protection measures, and other facilities.

Approximately 1.6 million cubic meters of material will be removed over the course of the work. Some 600,000 cubic meters of this will be reused for fill. The rest will be used for terrain modeling outside of the building plot. Around 36,000 cubic meters of road concrete and approximately 50,000 tons of asphalt will also be used for the construction of the two-lane motorway plus an emergency lane.
