Via Carpathia further down the road

Infrastructure
POLAND The Polish Ministry of Infrastructure has announced the start of the construction of more sections through Lubelskie and Podkarpackie provinces of the Via Carpathia route – the transnational highway scheme to connect Klaipėda in Lithuania with Thessaloniki in Greece.

Mota Engil Central Europe has been chosen as the contractor for the Janów Lubelski bypass and is now carrying out the earthwork. The PLN 148.5 mln contract, which should be completed in 2021, is for the construction of a dual carriageway expressway. For the next section, up to the Lasy Janowskie interchange, Strabag is now preparing the area after trees felling..Work is also in progress on the third section between the Kraśnik Południe interchange and the start of the Janów Lubelski bypass.

Almost 130 km of the S19 road (which forms part of Via Carpatia) between Lublin and Sokołów Małopolski in the Lubelskie and Podkarpackie provinces is under construction using the design-and-build system.

The entire project for the Via Carpatia route is divided into twelve sections, six in each region. The contracts were signed in autumn 2017 and in December 2018. Decisions have already been taken for the construction of four sections of the route in Lubelskie province and another two are expected shortly. Construction work is already underway on two of these and is to start on the others soon.

In the Podkarpackie province, four applications for road construction permits [ZRIDs] are currently being processed for sections of the S19, and the application documentation is being prepared for two other sections of this route. The permit for the first of the sections is expected to be issued in October.

Drivers should be able to use the first sections of the new S19 road between Lublin and Sokołów Małopolski in mid-2021 and the entire route between both towns in mid-2022. This will give Rzeszów and Warsaw a direct connection by expressway and reduced the distance between them to less than three hours.
