"We have a wide experience of state-guaranteed orders fulfilment, particularly in the field of road construction and asphalt paving repair works. This is because our asphalt products are very high-quality, and we are able to handle the project as agreed with the customer, for example keeping the timetables. Currently we are carrying out the renovation of the Moscow road A108 and bridges near Moscow," says Maaret Heiskari, Executive Vice President at Lemminkäinen.
Moskovsky district is situated in the South-West of St Petersburg. It is the largest industrial and residential area of the city and there are the biggest traffic flows in the city. For example, international airport Pulkovo is located there.
