MADRID (Reuters) - A Spanish-led consortium has won a 1 billion euro ($1.55 billion) deal to build and run part of the A-30 toll road that links Montreal with the U.S. border, one of the companies said on Friday.

Spanish services company Acciona said it would lead the group with construction group ACS. Canadian partner DJL would also take part in building the 42-km stretch of highway.

Acciona and ACS will then manage the Canadian highway for 35 years. They will also have a deal to run another 32-km stretch of the motorway.
