Winner for Spanish A66 highway

2 April 2012 Spainís Ä998m A66 highway concession has been finally awarded.

The Ministry of Development has appointed a consortium formed by companies Cintra, Acciona and Meridiam as preferred bidder to build, maintain and operate a 49km stretch of the A66 highway between Benavente and Zamora in return for availability payments over 30 years.

Cintra beat competition from a number of leading firms including ACS, OHL and FCC.

The sections to be built are:

  • Tranche A-6 (Castrogonzalo-Santovenia): 14.3 km
  • Section Fontanillas Santovenia-Castro: 17.8 miles
  • Section Fontanillas Castro-Zamora: 16.9 km

The contract award had been in doubt following the recent change in government and the bid levels that had been secured.
