September 13, 2011, 13:57 (PX Newswire)

12 September 2011 — AECOM announced today that it has won a contract for the public-private partnership (PPP) concession for the Moscow-St. Petersburg M11 Highway project in Russia from the North-West Concession Company (NWCC), which comprises the French company Vinci Concessions and private Russian investors.

Under the contract, AECOM is named “Technical Expert” and will monitor the compliance of the project to the approved parameters and report both to the grantor (the state company Avtodor) and the concessionaire (NWCC). In particular, the company will provide design-review and construction-supervision services for the programme. This highway project encompasses design, finance, construction and operation of the 27-mile first section of the new M11 toll road motorway from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

The M10 “Rossia” Highway is one of the busiest in Russia, and the new highway will provide an alternative from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Sheremetyevo International Airport as well as to cities close to Moscow.

“This is an important, large-scale PPP road-building project for Russia,” said Steve Morriss, AECOM’s Europe chief executive. “We bring worldwide experience in creating infrastructure, and we are delighted to be part of the team.”

The opening of the first section of the highway is estimated to take place three years after the start of construction, which has already begun.
