LOS ANGELES, Sep 19, 2011 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- AECOM Technology Corporation (NYSE: ACM), a leading provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, announced today that it has won a contract for the public-private partnership (PPP) concession for the Moscow-St. Petersburg M11 Highway project in Russia from the North-West Concession Company (NWCC), which comprises the French company Vinci Concessions and private Russian investors.
Under the contract, AECOM is named "Technical Expert" and will monitor the compliance of the project to the approved parameters and report both to the grantor (the state company Avtodor) and the concessionaire (NWCC). In particular, the company will provide design-review and construction-supervision services for the program. This highway project encompasses design, finance, construction and operation of the 27-mile first section of the new M11 toll road motorway from Moscow to St. Petersburg.
The existing M10 "Rossia" Highway is one of the busiest in Russia, and the new highway will provide a new alternative from Moscow to St. Petersburg, Sheremetyevo International Airport as well as to cities close to Moscow.
"AECOM is proud to play a role in such a large-scale PPP road-building project in Russia," said John M. Dionisio, AECOM president and chief executive officer. "Our worldwide expertise in creating infrastructure will help to ensure the project's full compliance with the highest quality standards."
The opening of the first section of the highway is estimated to take place 3 years after the start of construction, which has already begun.
