Government Contracts

Vienna/Papenburg - The joint venture A 1 Lohne Bramsche kicked off the new year
with the acquisition of a large project in transportation infrastructures. The
Federal Republic of Germany, represented by Die Autobahn GmbH des Bundes,
Westphalia Office, commissioned a joint venture consisting of STRABAG AG (50 %)
and JOHANN BUNTE Bauunternehmung GmbH & Co. KG (50 %) with the widening of the
A1 motorway in Lower Saxony over a distance of around 29.5 km under a so-called
function-based construction contract (FBV).

The section, located between the Lohne/Dinklage exit and Bramsche exit, will be
widened from two to three lanes in each direction. The approx. EUR 600 million
contract also includes structural maintenance over a period of 30 years.

"The widening of the motorway from four to six lanes will eliminate a bottleneck
on the busy A1. We are pleased to be able to contribute our expertise as the
market leader in German transportation infrastructure construction to this major
project," says Thomas Birtel, CEO of STRABAG SE.

"With this contract, we are continuing our long-standing tradition and expertise
in the realisation of infrastructure projects of this magnitude," says Manfred
Wendt, management spokesman of JOHANN BUNTE Bauunternehmung, adding, "Thanks to
its excellent local knowledge and wealth of experience in motorway construction
and civil engineering, BUNTE is in a strong position to accomplish these
demanding tasks."

Works package from STRABAG and JOHANN BUNTE

JOHANN BUNTE will take the technical lead and STRABAG the commercial lead in the
joint venture. Construction will start on 1 February 2021 and will be carried
out under traffic. Completion of the motorway section is scheduled for mid-2025.

In addition to extensive earthworks and the construction of the carriageways, 14
bridges along the motorway section as well as two overpasses over the motorway
must be completely rebuilt. In addition, 18 bridges will be rehabilitated. The
joint venture will also perform noise barrier works as well as accompanying
landscaping. With the aim of affecting the traffic flow as little as possible,
the joint venture will carry out its activities in eight construction phases. In
the first five phases, the motorway is to be widened in the direction of
Osnabrück (2021 and 2022). Once these works are completed, the next three phases
foresee widening and new construction works in the direction of Bremen.
