Preparation work is now starting on a new tunnel project to connect Uznam Island with Wolin Island in Northern Poland. Clearance work is underway at present with the actual construction activity due to start in January 2020. Costing €184 million, the work involves building a 3.4km unnel, which is due for completion by September 2022. The area is a key holiday destination for tourists and is close to the border with Germany. The new tunnel will improve transport connections and cut delays during holiday periods in particular when traffic volumes tend to be larger.
