100 kilometers of motorway
The first drivers will use the concrete section of the A-2 Świecko-Nowy Tomyśl motorway on 1 December 2011. Thus, the A-2 motorway will become part of the European motorway network. A-2 Świecko-Nowy Tomyśl section of the motorway was built in the concession system. Autostrada Wielkopolska SA is the concessionaire.

A bit of technology

Świecko-Nowy Tomyśl is the first so long section of motorway (106 km) built in concrete technology in Poland. According to the estimates it will be possible to use the road without additional reinforcement for about 40 years following the construction.



The scope of work covered included, inter alia: the construction of 105.9 km concrete pavement motorway, including reconstruction of the existing national road No. 2; construction of over 80 bridges and viaducts; construction of 6 complete motorway junctions; construction Service Areas (MOP), the construction of a closed toll system; complete equipped with devices to protect the environment.

According to the agreement the motorway will be opened for traffic on 1 December 2011 but up to 20 May 2012 additional works outside the roadway may be carried out, including: finishing works at the stations and tollbooths, planting, or corrections to the culverts for animals or drainage system . Therefore toll collection on this section of motorway will begin on 20 May 2012. Then the motorway will be put into operation completely with full equipment, including:



• Toll Collection Points,

• Alarm System,

• Service Areas.



So far, the A-2 was 254 km long and connected Łódź (Stryków) with Nowy Tomyśl. Additional 106 km long new section will make 360 km. Since July this year the motorway section from Stryków to Nowy Tomyśl is payable. The section of the A-2 Motorway from Nowy Tomyśl to Świecko (106 km) is a key fragment of the Polish motorway network that will connect our country with the West. Meanwhile, we can get to Łódź from the western border, but as soon as in seven months' time Warsaw will enjoy the direct connection with the West. Over the next half year the journey from Nowy Tomyśl to Świecko via A-2 motorway will be free of charge. Toll collection will be launched on 20 May 2012.





A bit of history

The contract to construct and operate the A-2 motorway concerning the section Świecko-Nowy Tomyśl was signed on 30 August 2008 and an agreement on financing of the investment was signed on 29 June 2009. Funds for implementation of the investments amounting to 1.560 billion euro came from three sources: a loan granted by the European Investment Bank in the amount of 974 million euro (about 62.5% of the value of the investment); loans granted by 11 international commercial banks amounting to 394 million euro (approximately 25.5% of the value of the investment) and the contributions of the shareholders of the concessionaire in the amount of 186 million euro, representing about 12% of the total cost of realization of the investment.



The commencement of the construction was preceded by several years of preparation. On 10 March 1997, the Minister of Transport and Maritime Affairs granted three concessions for the construction and operation of the A-2 Motorway (from Świecko to Stryków) to the concessionaire - company Autostrada Wielkopolska SA which has been selected in the tender proceedings, and a concession agreement specifying the detailed terms and conditions for the construction and operation of the highway was concluded on 12 September 1997. Since the concessionaire did not gain the funding for the entire project (total of 359.760 km) the concession agreement introduced the division of the realization of the sections covered by the concessions, on the section Nowy Tomyśl - Konin (used in its entirety since 2004), Świecko-Nowy Tomyśl (to be put into service on 1 December 2011) and Konin - Stryków (eventually, at the request of the concessionaire the concession for the construction of this section was repealed by the order by the Minister dated 5 May 1999).



After putting into operation of the new section Tomyśl - Konin, the detailed negotiations concerning the section Świecko - Nowy Tomyśl were undertaken. Smooth conduct of the negotiation process between middle of May 2008 and August 2008 enabled to end the process of agreements lasting several years on 30 August 2008. Thanks to the hard work and the concessionaire and the then new team in GDDKiA, at the end of August - an agreement for the construction and operation of the motorway was concluded and 10 months later the concessionaire obtained the financial closure and the construction started in mid of July 2009.

Cool. Do you know which company will deliver the TBM for the construction?

Herrenknecht maybe?

The reason I ask is that when checking this section through GoogleEarth, the imagery dated 2004 shows some work had already been done, so I was wondering if there had been some delay maybe? Maybe Poland waited for EU financing?

It's a political thing. This motorway has been built in PPP, by a private contractor. The concession has been granted way back in 1997, but for political reasons the negotiations regarding the financial conditions took many years, until finally the contract has been signed in 2008. It could and should have been ready a few years ago, but for some politicians it was not a priority. Well, at least it's ready now.

Was the A2 motorway opened from Świecko to Rzepin or to Nowy Tomyśl? Why are both of them being mentioned?

S14 is delayed by about 4 months, thus the opening has been moved in time. Completion dates. Interchange Stryków is almost completed, but i don't know what the precise status is atm.
