Wierzbowski Eversheds represented GDDKiA in negotiation of contract to build A1 Motorway

  • Poland


    On 22 January 2009 the Minister of Infrastructure signed a contract with Autostrada Południe S.A. for construction and use of the A1 Motorway.

    Our law firm represented the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA) in the negotiations. The contract was concluded for a period of 35 years and covers a 180 km section of the motorway from Stryków to Pyrzowice, connecting the city of Łódź with the Upper Silesia region. It will be the longest section of motorway to be built in Poland under a single contract. The estimated construction cost for the entire section is PLN 7.5 billion (EUR 1.7 billion).

    The investment will be carried out on the basis of a public-private partnership (PPP). The A1 Motorway is one of the undertakings Poland committed to carry out in preparation for the UEFA Euro 2012 European Football Championship.

    Lawyers from our firm who worked on the contract included Krzysztof Wierzbowski, Anna Ochocka and Grzegorz Rudnicki.

    Autostrada Południe S.A. (a consortium of Cintra, Budimex S.A. and Ferrovial Agromán) was represented by White & Case.
