    The project consists of the construction of a bridge and access roads on the Vistula river in the new course of National Road No 1 in Torun, which is part of the trans-European Transport Network, joining it with National Roads No 15 and No 80 in the section from Daszyńskiego Square to Łódzka Street. The total length of the new route is about 4.1 km.

    The realisation of the project should permit to alleviate the current high traffic pressure on the only existing bridge and on the connected infrastructure on either side of the river, reducing traffic emissions and noise, while improving safety.

    Environmental aspects

    Poland, as a Member State, is obliged to follow the relevant EU rules in relation to the environmental impact of projects (namely SEA, EIA and Habitat/Natura 2000 Directives). The new EIA Polish law, which is fully compliant with EU Directives, entered into force in November 2008. The present project is a new road connection, falling under Annex I of the EIA Directive 85/337/EEC, amended by directives 97/11/EC and 2003/35/EC, therefore a full EIA has been carried out. Details will be checked at appraisal stage.

    The promoter is a public entity subject to EU public procurement regulations. The Bank will require the promoter to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the Project have been/shall be tendered in accordance with the relevant applicable EU procurement legislation (mainly Directive 2004/17/EEC) with parallel publication of tender notices in the EU Official Journal, as and where appropriate. All the details will be checked at appraisal stage.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
