Road workers remind that in 2021 there are also tenders for year-round maintenance of roads managed by GDDKiA. “Since the beginning of the year, we have announced 9 procedures for these works. They concern, among others, the maintenance of the A4 motorway in the Dolnośląskie Voivodeship, the A8 Autostradowa Obwodnica Wrocławskiego or the S3 expressway in the Zachodniopomorskie Voivodeship. “- GDDKiA writes.
As the Management explains, the tenders cover works related to the maintenance of cleanliness of the road lane, introducing changes in the area of marking, cutting trees and lawns, and cleaning culverts and drain grates.
“They also include works related to drainage, maintenance of sidewalks and bicycle paths, as well as the body of the road, surface and shoulders. An important task is also the winter maintenance of roads, which is associated with providing appropriate conditions for driving during possible frosts and heavy snowfall. “- it was written.
“Enterprises operating in the road industry, regardless of whether in the field of construction, maintenance or design, will have their hands full for many years to come. This is evidenced not only by the tenders announced by us this year, but also investment plans for 2022 and subsequent years “- sums up GDDKiA.
