Currie & Brown's London-based international consultancy team has been appointed as technical adviser for the "A2 project" in Spain, by the funders MLA Société Générale.
The EURO 230 million PPP project in Zaragoza is part of an investment programme by the Spanish Ministry of Infrastructure to upgrade the main network of roads across Spain.
Currie & Brown, the international asset management consultancy, will have a team of five from its London office providing technical support to MLA Société Générale, focusing on the identification of risks.
Santiago Klein, Director at Currie & Brown commented:
"We were delighted to be chosen once again by MLA Société Générale as their technical advisors following our work for them on the Madrid Calle 30 project. This latest appointment reinforces our established track record as the technical advisers of choice within the PPP arena."
The work, which is being carried out by the Spanish contractor Ferrovial, will see major refurbishment work carried out on a 110 km stretch of motorway between Calatayud and Alfajarin in Zaragoza, as well as the operation, maintenance and infrastructure replacement programme over the next 19 years.
