SIS, a consortium comprising Fininc and Sacyr, has been awarded the P3 contract for Via del Mare project, a new 19-km divided highway section running between Jesolo and Meolo, in northeast Italy.
This contract, awarded by the Veneto Region local government, includes the design, build, finance, operation, and maintenance of the new 18.6-km divided highway section. Of the total project length, 10.4 km correspond to road widening works, and the remaining 8.2 km will be new road construction works.
Connection to the coast
The Via del Mare is a new road connecting the A4 and the resort town of Jesolo. Currently there is no existing road directly connecting the two, which requires a detour across several regional roads and small towns. The project includes five intermediate entrance/exit points in addition to accesses at both ends of the highway.
The Via del Mare estimates €1.6 billion in traffic revenues over a 32-year concession period and an average daily traffic rate of 36.000 vehicles.
