Astaldi has been awarded Lots 2A and 2B of the Frontiera-Curtici-Simeria Railway Line of the new Pan-European Corridor IV. The two on going contracts foresee rehabilitation and stabilisation of 80 kilometres of the railway line and the construction of 11 stations, 30 bridges, a tunnel and the ERTMS telecommunications and signalling system. The two lots are adjacent to one another; the considerable operational synergies and economies of scale thus gained will guarantee optimum performance of the works.
