A new cycle path will be built along Jagiellońska Street this year. It is another project being implemented under Integrated Territorial Investments (ITI). 19 investments will be implemented in Warsaw under ITI.

The Municipal Road Authority (ZDM) has announced a tender for the construction of a cycle path along the east side of Jagiellońska Street, from the Starzyńskiego roundabout to the S8 express way (approx. 2 km long). The scope of works is wide, as it includes not only the construction of a cycle path, but also a modification to the street lighting system, and the rebuilding of pavements and traffic lights. The project includes the construction of bicycle crossings and adjusting service roads for bike traffic (on both the east and west sides of Jagiellońska Street, with the stretch between Golędzinowska Street and Batalionu Platerówek Street allowing cycling “against the traffic flow”). The new path will be connected with the existing cyclepath infrastructure of the Starzyńskiego roundabout and the Modlińska Street junction. The Contractor will have time until 30 November to complete the works.

This is another tender for the construction of cycle paths under Integrated Territorial Investments. Due to the cooperation between the local government of the Mazowieckie Voivodeship, the City of Warsaw and the communes neighbouring Warsaw, 13 projects have been selected for implementation, which will result in the expansion of the cyclepath network in Warsaw and 34 neighbouring communes. The total cost of constructing the nearly 330 km of cycle paths is estimated at approx. PLN 340 million. The local governments will obtain more than PLN 241 million from EU funds.

Warsaw will receive PLN 71.6 million (the total cost of the investment is estimated at PLN 110 million). The funds will be used for the construction of 19 cycle paths totalling 73.4 km, with 59.8 km of new paths and 13 km of rebuilt pre-existing paths, and the remaining 0.6 km designated within the existing infrastructure. The grant agreement was signed on 30 December 2016. Thanks to ITI, this year and next year Warsaw will get new cycle paths along Towarowa, Okopowa, Żwirki i Wigury, Powsińska, Wiertnicza, Połczyńska, Kasprzaka, Jagiellońska, Puławska, and Jerozolimskie Streets.
