Salerno-Reggio Calabria Motorway

A hundred kilometres from Salerno, the "Macrolotto 2" section is one of the most complex in Italy, where SACYR has built 31 kilometres of new motorway since 2008. The works are executed using the General Contractor system, through the Italian subsidiary SIS. The section runs between the Calore viaduct and the Lauria Norte junction.

The works are in a mountain area of complex orography, which requires the building of 38 new viaducts with a total length of 12.2 km, 11 new double tunnels with a tube length of 15.3 km, 8 cut-and-cover double tunnels with a total length of 2.2 km, and three new junctions.
