Webuild emerges and best bidder for Napoli-Bari high-speed railway project

Published on : Wednesday, June 23, 2021

Webuild has emerged as the best bidder for a contract involving the design and construction of the Orsara-Hirpinia section on Italy’s Napoli-Bari high-speed railway project.

Once awarded, the $1.23bn (€1.032bn) contract will involve Webuild managing works for Rete Ferroviaria Italiana (Gruppo FS Italiane).

The works will be executed by a consortium, in which Webuild has a 70% stake while Pizzarotti owns the remaining 30%.

Earlier, an additional 11.8km section of the same line between Orsara and Bovino was awarded at a value of $437.09m (€367.2m). This contract is part of the modernisation of the railway between Bari and Naples.

The Orsara-Hirpinia section is being planned to be included in the fifth corridor of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T), which would operate between Helsinki and Valetta.

This new section will extend for 28km, with nearly 27km running in a tunnel.

The trains operating on this line are expected to run at a speed of 250km/h.
