The SIS consortium, comprised of Fininc 51% and Sacyr 49%, has been awarded the construction of S.S. 340 Regina Tremezzina bypass, a 9.5-km stretch of highway in the Como province of northern Italy. The contract amounts to 388 million euros with a completion deadline of five years. The project, awarded by the public firm ANAS, entails an alternative route intended to circumvent traffic in the towns of Sala Comacina and Tremezzina. The total stretch of road is 9.55 km in length, divided into three tunnel sections built mainly of rock:
Comacina tunnel: 3,489 meters
Perlana tunnel: 1,908 meters
Tremezzina tunnel: 2,568 meters
The section corresponds to a conventional suburban bypass with one lane in each direction. The tunnel sections will include the construction of two parallel tunnels: one principle tunnel with a diameter of 11.6 meters, and a parallel emergency route 5.6 meters wide.
Moreover, the largest P3, the Pedemontana-Veneta highway, is one of the most important infrastructure projects under construction in Italy and one of the key highlights of the Sacyr Concessions portfolio, with scheduled investment of 2.6 billion euros and an income portfolio of nearly 10 billion euros.
The project calls for 162 km of construction: 94 km correspond to the main highway, which connects 34 municipalities and the industrial area of Vicenza and Treviso, and 68 km correspond to secondary access.
A third section of highway, 15 kilometers in length, was recently put into service; work is already more than 86% complete.
