The Świętokrzyska Route under construction

The construction of the Świętokrzyska Route is coming to an end. The streets, railway tunnels, pavements and cycle paths are nearly completed. The construction works are due to be completed in September.

The agreement for the design and construction of this section of the Świętokrzyska Route (from Zabraniecka St. to the Warsaw East Station) was signed in 2015, and the works began in October that year. The road is going to be completed in September 2017. This section of the Świętokrzyska Route is 1.2 km long. The route has two streets, with two traffic lanes at each side, as well as pavements and cycle paths.

There is also space for the planned tram route - until it is built, the space will be a green area. The route crosses railway tracks running to the Warsaw East Station in three places, where tunnels have been built. The tracks and the tram line have also been reconstructed in places where the street crosses the tracks. The remaining tasks of the road construction workers include the construction of traffic lanes near the tunnels, the placement of the last road-surface layer, road signs, and traffic lights. As far as greenery arrangement is concerned, 140 trees and 4 thousand bushes will be planted, and the grassed areas will cover approx. 4.5 ha.

The first changes in road traffic have also been planned due to the construction of the section of the Świętokrzyska Route from J. Zamoyskiego St. to Targowa St. The section of J. Zamoyskiego Street running from Sokola St. to K. Marcinkowskiego St. will be closed for traffic since Wednesday, 31th May, 10:00 p.m.
The Świętokrzyska Route section from the Świętokrzyski Bridge to Zabraniecka St. spans over 3 km.
