Polish highway network plan “close to being completed”: min

We are close to completing our plan regarding the construction of 2,000 kilometres of highways in Poland, as 82 percent of such routes are already built, said the Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk on Monday.

So far, 1638 kilometres of highway in the country are fully operational. The ministry predicts that the final section of highway will be put into service in 2025.

As Mr Adamczyk pointed out, currently the ministry is focusing on the construction of express roads.

“Our plan is to build 5,650 kilometres of express roads, and the modernisation of some sections due to environmental procedures, which will give us a total of 6,000 kilometres of these routes. As of today, we have realised 39 percent of the assumed network, that is, 2,200 kilometres,” he said.

The minister stressed that there was no threat of under-implementation of the EU funds in the field of traffic investments. He also assured that the same goes for railway investments.
