Research and Markets: Poland Infrastructure Report Q1 2013: Poland's Road Building Programme, Running From 2007 to 2015, Is Expected To Draw US$60bn of Investment into the Sector
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jkrl7r/poland) has announced the addition of the "Poland Infrastructure Report Q1 2013" report to their offering.
The construction sector growth fell from 9.6% y-o-y in Q1 2012, to only 1.4% in Q2. Additionally, a large number of planned projects are being delayed, altered or completely terminated, which has dampening our previously optimistic outlook for the sector. Two large power projects: PGE's 1.8GW Opole coal-fired power plant and Energa's 1GW Ostroleka coal power plant, have been delayed and suspended respectively, which will together see contracts worth US$5.7bn removed from the immediate project pipeline.
The following projects are in the pipeline:
- Road building programme: Poland's road building programme, running from 2007 to 2015, is expected to draw US$60bn of investment into the sector. The much sought-after A1 motorway road project seems to be picking up momentum, after Polish authorities, in July 2012, were reportedly inviting design and construction tenders for eight sections of a 180km stretch of the A1 highway.
- Airport Investments: The value of the sub-sector more than doubled between 2009 and 2011, to PLN365mn (US$123mn). BMI estimates that projects worth more than US$2bn are under way in the airport sub-segment and these will together result in annual average real growth of 10% between 2013 and 2017. Adding to the optimism, Irish budget carrier Ryanair, in September 2012, revealed plans to launch flights from the new Lublin Airport, which is currently being transformed from a military airstrip into a commercial airport.
