Veidekke ASA: Road contract worth NOK 2.3 billion signedVeidekke Entreprenør's CEO Dag Andresen and Nye Veier's Project Director Øyvind Moshagen today signed a major contract valued at NOK 2.3 billion excluding VAT for the construction of the new E6 motorway between Arnkvern and Moelv in Hedmark.
Veidekke will build a new four-lane motorway with a 110 km/h speed limit on the 24 kilometre section between Arnkvern and Moelv through Ringsaker municipality in Hedmark county.
Construction work will start shortly, and the section is scheduled to be opened in December 2020 - seven months earlier than originally planned.
Veidekke will have strong emphasis on the environment in connection with the planned construction. A significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions is planned compared to traditional road construction, through the choice of materials and planned structures, among other things.
The contract is included in Veidekke's order backlog for Q3. More information on the project: http://www.nyeveier.no/veiprosjektene/e6-kolomoen-moelv/
