· A new commercial success in North Carolina
· A contract with a value of more than US $400 million

In a joint venture with The Lane Construction Corporation, Eurovia's North Carolina subsidiary Blythe Construction has won the design-build contract for the N.C. 540 - Triangle Expressway Southeast Extension in Raleigh, North Carolina, the state's capital and second-largest city.

The US $403 million project will extend the existing Triangle Expressway from US 401 to I-40 and is part of the larger Complete 540 project and is designed to improve the highway system in the greater Raleigh area.

The project, scheduled for delivery in 2022, covers design and construction of a six-lane, 12.8 km highway and involves 5 million cubic metres of earthworks, construction of 29 bridges and 290,000 square metres of concrete pavement and placement of 135,000 tonnes of hot mix asphalt.

Eurovia has substantial operations in the southeastern United States - especially Florida, Georgia and North and South Carolina - via its subsidiaries Hubbard Construction and Blythe Construction. The company generated revenue of €489 million in the United States in 2017. On 20 August 2018, Eurovia signed an agreement to acquire the U.S. based plants and paving division of Lane Construction (operating in 10 states on the East Coast and Texas). Subject to approval of the acquisition by the U.S. regulatory authorities, the move will double Eurovia's operations in the United States, making it a leading roadworks company on the East Coast.
