Poland will invest €4.3 billion in road development, upgrade and maintenance works during 2024. The budget has been announced by Poland’s General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways (GDDKiA).

According to GDDKiA, the scale of this funding will carry on for the next few years. So far, 16 large highway contracts have been awarded in 2024 with the target being a further 200km of new roads being built by the end of the year.

One of the latest contracts awarded by GDDKiA has been for a 17km section of the €174.3 million S17 expressway. The project will be carried out by a consortium that comprises Aldesa Construcciones Polska and Aldesa Construcciones. The conclusion of the work will see improved traffic flow between Lublin and Zamosc, via Piaski.

In addition, a €127.4 million package of works for roads in West Pomerania has been awarded. Work will go ahead in due course for the Rusinov Ring Road and a stretch of the S10 Cybowo-Lowicz Walecki Expressway. The project will include building 16 bridges and is expected to reduce traffic delays in the area, with the work due for completion in 2028.
