330 kilometres of new express roads in Poland to overcome bottlenecks in trans-European infrastructure

The following press release was issued by the European Commission on March 17, 2016 12:28 pm.

Today the European Commission has approved ten major projects worth €3.3 billion for the construction of approximately 330km of new express roads in Poland. The projects will receive contributions from the Cohesion Fund of €1.2 billion and €493 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Jyrki Katainen, Vice-President for Jobs, Growth, Investment and Competitiveness, said: “Transport infrastructure is one of the target sectors of the Investment Plan for Europe. Today’s announcement will improve accessibility within Poland, facilitate international trade links and boost tourism. European Structural and Investment (ESI) funds are an excellent way to invest in transport, as is the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) which has already helped to finance many transport projects. We recently issued guidelines explaining how project promoters could combine ESI funds with the EFSI so I hope people will make use of this possibility.”

Corina Creţu, Commissioner for Regional Policy, emphasised: “This is a big day for investment in the EU and particularly in Poland. The implementation of these projects will have a direct positive impact on everyday life. As part of the core Trans-European Transport Networks, this EU financial support to new infrastructure will reduce bottlenecks and make life for people easier and boost business activity.”

Violeta Bulc, Commissioner for Transport, added: “Transport is a strong driver of economic growth, jobs and trade. It is therefore a priority of the Commission to boost public and private investment in this sector. ESI funds are a prime example and other instruments exist, such as the Connecting Europe Facility or the European Commission’s Investment Plan. I hope to see many other transport projects being supported by the EU in Poland.”

Four major projects located in the regions of Lower Silesian and Lubuskie will receive a contribution of €776.2 million from the Cohesion Fund. Many of the roads are conducted on the track of existing national roads or in their vicinity, and are part of the Baltic-Adriatic TEN-T Core Network Corridor. The projects will eliminate bottlenecks in transport communication, attract business and improve road safety.

The European Commission will also invest €493.3 million from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) in two major projects in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie region where the express road S7 is a part of the TEN-T corridor. The improved connectivity will boost trade and tourism.

Additionally, access to inter-regional connections will be improved thanks to investments worth of €441.3 million from the Cohesion Fund through four major projects in the regions of Podlaskie, Małopolskie, Swiętokrzyskie and Mazowieckie where the Via Baltica, a 970km stretch between Warsaw and Tallinn, constitutes a significant connection between the Baltic States.

Background information

The objective of these major projects is to ensure investments for jobs and growth under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment, Priority Axis 3, development of TEN-T core network and multimodal transport.

The co-financing decision for these projects falls under the programming period 2014-2020.

Poland has been allocated approximately €67 billion in Cohesion Policy funding for 2007-2013, and €77.6 billion for 2014-2020.

This seems to mean that the S61 has been approved for EU funding. Can anyone verify?

I'm trying to work it out too. I don't think so - it mentions 4 major projects, but if it was the S61, it wouldn't mention the other provinces. Could just be some of the S61 has been funded, but it doesn't look like all of it.

But the real mystery to me is the funding of the S3. What makes this such an important corridor worthy of being completed? The Czechs are not going to get Hradec Kralove-Olomouc built anytime soon, and the whole corridor seems pretty silly in an EU context.

(hint, hint, EU : what about funding a nice bypass of Miedzylesie and Boboszów?)

These Baltic-Adriatic corridors mentioned above are here:

So it means money will go most likely for S3,A4 and S7. S61 is out of scope according to that map but then it is (Via Baltica) mentioned too at the end...

A4 will receive less funding, as it is almost complete. A1 certainly will.
As you think European Commission or whatever is reading Skyscrapercity... I doubt it

I wouldn't exclude A4. It is not clear if money goes to new projects or at least part of it for upgrading already built motorways. In case of A4 there is a need to widen it by adding shoulders especially between Legnica and Wroclaw.

It's a bird... it's a plane... it's S79 adjacent to Warsaw-Chopin Airport.

Just FYI, pasting Facebook bare URLs tend to show no photos after a while. These are often temporary URLs created by their Content Delivery Network to serve popular / recent photos. These URLs tend to deprecate after a while.

That map really shows why a decent connection is needed between Brno and Wrocław. It's such a huge detour via Katowice/Ostrava - it's 400km from Wrocław to Brno via the current motorway connection on the A4/A1/D1, whereas the connection through Kłodzko and Svitavy is a mere 250km.

Yes, starting with incrementally extending the S8 south from Wrocław toward Kłodzko.

The last stretch of the Drogowa Trasa Średnicowa (urban expressway) will be open to traffic this evening.
It`s 5,6 km long 2+2 road in Gliwice between national road 88 and interchange with Kujawska street. This stretch of road includes the 493 meter long tunnel under the city center.

Unbelievable something like that can get built in modern Europe. It's looks straight out of 1960's America, not 2010's Europe.

To what are you referring - the newly opened stretch of the DTS in Gliwice and it's tunnel under central Gliwice?

^yup. the off ramps and little micro tunnel don't do much, it still splits the city in half. Walking across that is very, very far from a pleasant experience as a pedestrian, you can tell. Plus its still open air for most of the inner city, which isn't going to help those areas at all. Even well buffered highways can kill neighborhoods. Toronto saw a wealthy neighborhood full of Victorian mansions and close to the beach turn into one of the poorest areas in the city when the expressway was put in, and Toronto avoided the worst of urban expressway construction. Similar things have happened the world over, and sadly I don't see Gwilice being unique in avoidance of it.
