As the OÖN reported in its Monday edition, the state government gave its green light yesterday evening for the increased construction costs of the Linzer Westring (A26).
The state will have to provide 112.4 million euros for the A26. This corresponds to almost a doubling compared to the estimates from 2011. The reasons are the sharp increase in construction costs, an increased risk budget and better technical equipment. In total, the Westring will cost well over one billion euros.
The ÖVP, SPÖ and FPÖ voted to release the funds. Only Environment Councilor Stefan Kaineder (Greens) voted against it. A resolution from the Linz local council – the city is contributing five percent – is still pending; this is expected at the beginning of 2024.
The first construction phase of the city motorway (new Danube bridge including tunnel ramps) is scheduled to be opened to traffic in the fourth quarter of next year.
The increased construction costs for the construction of the Weyer bypass were also discussed at the government meeting. The costs were originally estimated at 50 million euros. The bypass is now expected to cost at least 60 million euros. Here too, all parties agreed with the exception of the Greens.
