Projektowanie i budowanie przy użyciu wirtualnych modeli (BIM)
In Poland, Skanska is at the heart of one of Europe's largest road projects, the Autostrada A1, or European Road E75.
The motorway follows a 152 km north-south route divided into two phases, linking one of Poland's largest cities, Gdansk, on the Baltic Sea, with the city of Torun. The motorway forms part of the Pan European Transport Corridor VI. Therefore, it will be part of a vast Central European integrated network, reaching from the Baltic to the Adriatic and from Western Europe to Russia.
Being a part of the North-South Trans European corridor linking Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, the A1 is vital for the Poland’s continuing social and economic development. Not only will it bring new jobs and create more investment and trade opportunities, it will also help to integrate Poland better with the other EU nations.
The motorway has been designed to minimize its impact on cultural heritage and environmentally sensitive areas.
Start date for the project was 2005 and it was completed 2011.
- Faster, safer journeys in a country that needs more highways.
- Journey times cut in half.
- 20,000 - 25,000 users per day.
- First phase completed three months ahead of schedule.
- Brings trade and opportunity by linking Poland's seaports with the European transport network.
- Job creation - 3500 jobs during construction, c.350 local jobs during operation.
- Businesses and commercial enterprises moving in.

Skanska created up to 3,500 jobs during construction and will continue with around 350 staff directly employed in long-term jobs, plus spin off work, e.g. workshop, deliveries, services, etc, sustainable economic development, and a new kind of relationship with the community based on a strong commitment to local people.
• Private financing reduces funding burden on state finances • Modern and well managed road infrastructure • Improvement of the traffic flow• Time saving • Safety (Significant decrease of accidents in the A1 corridor and on national road #1 in years 2007 and 2008) • Reduction of pollution as well as a noise reduction on the roads running along the motorway • Brings trade and opportunity by linking Poland’s seaports with the European transport network • Job creation
In addition to creating local employment, we have also been running a major community project to raise awareness of road safety in schools. 'Set a shining example' is inspired by the reflective safety armbands distributed to students and is designed to ensure the very youngest members of the community understand the impact of the development and the dangers of traffic.
One hundred and fifty teachers have been trained to deliver road safety education in schools, and provided with teaching materials and support to help the rest of the community understand the impact of site traffic. It's more than just a community relations exercise - the safety campaigns are making a measurable difference to accident rates.
We have also taken the initiative in a campaign promoting safer driving, called "Kulturalna Jazda", Cultural Driving, together with authorities and a number of associations and local radio stations. This has been very welcome and highly praised.
The A1 is a 31-year concession, so we had every incentive to ensure that it was designed, built and operated for the long-term and have made sure the life cycle fund maintains road quality without inflating costs.
This balancing act has to include the ability to respond rapidly to changes in the political environment. For instance, road usage forecasts changed dramatically after a change of government policy which decided to provide lorry drivers with cost effective passes, vignettes, to make sure they used the highway rather than avoiding tolls by travelling on minor roads. We were able to redesign the road to handle almost double the expected heavy vehicles. Then we agreed a corresponding change in the heavy maintenance contract in such a way as to deliver it for more or less the same cost to the client as before the change.
GTC constantly strives to increase value for the end user, the client and shareholders by being attentive to potential technical developments or amending procedures for operating the motorway.
GTC is seen as a proactive partner for the public sector and its part in the A1 is considered a model for PPP projects in Poland.
The A1 runs through a unique natural environment and blending the motorway with the existing terrain has been a key priority.
Two sections of Phase II of the A1 Motorway projects are located directly in Natura 2000-protected areas of the Vistula River. To deal with this the project undertook a detailed wildlife inventory that included rare plants and animals, birds' corridors, and animal routes.
Because some of the road's sections cut across the migration routes of numerous animal species, we have equipped it with special underpasses and culverts to allow deer, amphibians, reptiles, and small mammals to pass. We've also installed a number of new stork nesting platforms on or near farm buildings in local communities and helped stork couples to move.
In total, on Phase 1 we have sown or planted more than 127 hectares of grass, 2,725 deciduous trees, 837 conifers, 32,615 leaf shrubs and 248 creepers. In addition to tall trees that will 'conceal' the A1 in the landscape, a selection of large-leaf plants will also limit the spread of air pollution and noise. As spring arrives, the road turns green.
Natura 2000 is a network of protected areas set up to ensure the survival of Europe's most valuable species and habitats. It comprises over 18,000 sites, covers around 17.5% of the territory of the 'old' 15 EU member states (an area almost as large as France) and is now being extended to the new member states.
The data we gathered was used to satisfy the EU regulations covering Natura 2000 and was important evidence at public consultations in the area, as well as helping us to site animal routes and care for the wildlife. We also transferred rare plants from the site to botanical gardens and scientific institutes. All this work drove forward the environmental impact reassessment process that enabled our construction colleagues to secure the relevant permits for Phase II.
During construction itself, we are monitoring environmental factors extensively and taking special precautions over any installation or plant within and close to the borders of Natura 2000.
