Some zł.15 billion will be spent on road construction projects in Poland next year, Rzeczpospolita reported, citing General Directorate for National Roads and Highways data.
That's almost half of what contractors were promised in 2012 for public projects, although the real amount that will go to their pockets will most likely be zł.4 billion less.
According to estimates by Polish builder Budimex, under the next EU budget the government should get some €2 billion more for road investments than it received in the 2007-2013 EU budget.
Minister of Transport Sławomir Nowak has said that in mid-2013 the government will be ready to announce the next round of road tenders co-financed by the EU.
