Skanska has won a US $89 million (CZK2 billion) contract from the National Rail Authority to upgrade a railway section for high-speed trains in Prague.
The contract involves a 9km stretch which is set to be upgraded for high-speed trains and connected with the new rail link that the company is building in Prague under an earlier contract.
The current project includes upgrading of two existing tracks and construction of a third track.
In addition, the project includes renovation of a number of bridges and building noise protection along the stretch of railway.
Work is expected to take three years.
