The project will finance the construction of a section (about 41 km-long) of the S6 expressway between Bozepole and the "Tri-City" (metropolitan area consisting of Gdynia, Sopot and Gdansk) bypass.
The project is located on a comprehensive Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) in a less developed region and will improve road traffic conditions in the corridor.
The investment is essential for improving the efficiency of the road connection to the Gdynia and Gdansk ports from the north-west regions of Poland. It forms part of the broader S6 route development, connecting Szczecin and Gdansk along the Baltic coastline of Poland with an expressway standard road.
The expected economic benefits include time savings and vehicle operating cost reductions for road users due to enhanced road infrastructure capacity. The project may also offer some modest safety and environmental benefits to be assessed.
Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)
EUR 200 million
Total cost (Approximate amount)
