The company was determined, which was awarded a contract for the reconstruction of M-18 “Kola” highway running from the Russian city of St. Petersburg to the Norwegian border will be signed, Fontanka.Ru reports on Thursday.
The matter concerns the construction company VAD, which was the only participant in a tender for the highway reconstruction. The cost of work to be done on the site is estimated at 12 billion rubles ($190 million). Since there were no other participants in the tender, the contract will be concluded at the maximum price.
So, the road-building company should reconstruct the highway section from 51 to 68 kilometer. The contractor needs to dismantle and build the road, install bus stops and markings along the roadway. All work should be completed by the end of 2021.
