Budimex begins works on the S5 between Ostróda and Grudziądz

On 28 April 2020, Budimex S.A. and the Olsztyn branch of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways signed a contract for the construction of the Ornowo – Wirwajdy section of the S5 expressway in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Voivodeship.


Value of the contract: PLN 165,603,607.00 net. The new road will be covered by a 5-year warranty. The deadline is 31 months from the contract conclusion date.


The construction works on the Ornowo – Wirwajdy segment of the S5 expressway will be conducted on a section of about 5 km. As part of this task, additional roadways are to be constructed to improve access to the adjacent areas as well. Roads of other categories crossing the new S5 route will be rebuilt accordingly. The S5 itself will be a dual carriageway. It will include the Ostróda West junction, four flyovers and two wildlife crossings for large animals.


The construction of the Ornowo – Wirwajdy S5 expressway section is a continuation of the construction process of the Ostróda beltway, which is part of national road no. 16. The latter will eventually become part of the Grudziądz – Ostróda section of the S5 expressway, as well an element of a whole system of expressways in northern Poland running from east to west.
