A1 motorway connecting north and south Poland will soon be completed
The 81 km-long section of the highway between Tuszyn and Czestochowa in central and southern Poland will be upgraded to motorway standard and will thus form part of the broader A1 motorway route from the Baltic Coast to the border with the Czech Republic.
The works are organised through the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA).
The Baltic-Adriatic corridor is part of the Trans-European Transport Network TEN-T supported by the European Union.
The EU bank has been financing road modernisation projects in Poland within the TEN-T network for more than 10 years and has already committed financing for both the northern and southern sections of the A1 motorway.
The European Investment Bank has also signed an important operation with PLK Polskie Linie Kolejowe, Poland’s operator of the national railway network infrastructure. ■
