The project consists of the construction and upgrade of several road stretches to motorway/expressway standards, totalling some 50km, to improve the access to the Polish capital from the south-east.
The project is located on the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) - Regulation 1315/2013 - and will improve road traffic conditions in the corridor and in particular, on a section of the multi-modal North Sea - Baltic corridor. It addresses a gap in the efficiency of access road network alignment and will eliminate traffic bottlenecks near Warsaw. The expected economic benefits include time savings and vehicle operating cost reductions for road users due to enhanced road capacity. The project may also offer some modest safety and environmental benefits.
