STRABAG JV helps with €122m expansion of Dubrovnik Airport
The European-based construction group STRABAG is helping to modernise and expand Dubrovnik Airport in Croatia. The € 122 million contract will be carried out by a joint venture in which STRABAG holds a 53.92 % share.
The modernisation and expansion of the airport runways and of the runway lighting system should be completed by the autumn of 2019. The works also include the construction of a rescue and fire station, a hangar, and several service and administration buildings.
“The beautiful historic old town of Dubrovnik is a major tourist attraction. Dubrovnik Airport plays a crucial role in providing access to the city and its expansion is an important investment to help cover the rising demand for capacities in the future,” says Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE.
The project involves the excavation of more than 1.5 million m³ of material and will require 247,000 t of asphalt mixture and 58,000 m³ of concrete to be poured.
