Dopravni Stavbi, a Czech subsidiary of the Swedish construction group Skanska, is to modernise 14km of no. 16 road in Poland after signing a contract valued at over US$12 million with the local authority and general directorate of national roads and motorways (GDDKiA) in Olsztyn, north-east Poland. The work is scheduled for completion by September 2004. The European Union's Phare-funded Social and Economic Cohesion Programme will contribute nearly US$6 million; Olsztyn local authority around US$600,000, and the Polish finance ministry the rest of the investment.
