An intensive expansion of expressways and highways has been happening for a few years now, also in Lublin region. We have been inquiring whether Puławy will also benefit from the long-term plans of development of road infrastructure in Poland.
New roads in Lublin region
In September 2013 a tender is expected to be announced for the construction of the new stage of expressway S17, on Kurów – Warsaw section. What we are keen on finding out, however, is what about the roads to Puławy?
What about S12?
We are speaking about the second phase of the construction of Puławy bypass, a road connecting Kurów West Hub with the new bridge on Vistula river and an existing fragment of the bypass road. The extension, in combination with the aforementioned expressway S17, will not only provide Puławy with good road access to Warsaw, but also to Lublin and the neighboring airport. This is absolutely crucial for Azoty Group “PUŁAWY”. Upon gaining a convenient road connection, we may extend our distribution network, and simplify transportation with various parts of Poland and Europe.
What is the time perspective?
We have yet to hear confirmed information about further course of action regarding connection between S12 and S17. Despite the statements by the representatives of Parliamentary Commission for Infrastructure, that the investment is quite likely, there is no go-ahead from the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy. We need to be patient.
