MADRID, August 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Isolux Corsan, through its subsidiary Isolux Infrastructure, has opened the NH-6 highway to the traffic along 133 kilometres between Gujarat and Hazira Port in India. Before it was opened to traffic on 19 August, the Spanish company executed the adaptation and widening of the road, increasing the highway from two lanes to four; in addition to the construction of the service roads on both sides of the road.
Among the works performed by Isolux Corsan, we would highlight the execution of six railway crossings, four viaducts, 24 underpasses and 36 bridges (three of which longer than 60 metres).
The concession project for the operation of the NH-6 highway was awarded to the joint venture Corsan-Corviam Construcción- SOMA ENTERPRISE LIMITED, split evenly between the two companies. The total project budget was 270 million euro.
Isolux Corsan has increased its activity in India in the last six years to now hold four highways under concession, with more than 700 km and an investment of more than 2.0 billion euro. In addition to the NH-6 highway, the company manages the NH-1 Panipat-Jalandhar (291 km), the NH-2 Varanasi-Aurangabad (192 km) and NH-8 Kishangarh-Ajmer-Beawar (94 km), all through the subsidiary Isolux Infrastructure. The Infrastructure division is responsible for the widening or, as the case may be, new construction of these highways.
