NCC to restore roads in Honduras for SEK 85 million NCC International Projects has received an order to restore approximately 40 kilometers of roads in Honduras. The client is SOPTRAVI, the Honduran Secretariat for Construction, Communications and Housing. The contract is worth about SEK 85 million (USD 9 million) and is mainly being financed by NDF, the Nordic Development Foundation. The order is for the restoration of some 40 kilometers of roads between Jícaro Galán and El Amatillo in southern Honduras. The assignment includes reinforcement in the form of a new base course and new asphalt surfacing, and an expanded drainage system along the road section concerned. Work is expected to commence in November and last for about 18 months. "We are very pleased to have received this order, which is fully in line with our strategic focus on Central America," says Per Nielsen, Head of NCC International Projects. Among other assignments in Central America, NCC previously built a hydroelectric power plant in Costa Rica and is currently engaged in road construction projects in Nicaragua, including one under the auspices of SIDA (the Swedish International Development Authority) that involves reconstruction of the country's highway network following the damage caused by Hurricane Mitch. NCC is also active in the Dominican Republic, where two water supply projects are in progress. For further information, please contact: Per Nielsen.
