The S-61 Expressway from Ostrów Mazowiecka to Szczuczyn will serve to increase economic potential of the entire region and attract investors, said Mateusz Morawiecki. He pointed out that it is a very important communication artery of strategic importance for both Poland as well as Central and Eastern Europe.

Increasing the economic security of individual regions is our primary goal, said the head of the government.

The Prime Minister stressed that expressways and fast highways are of key importance to the government not only in terms of development, but also in the context of increased security. He announced that the law aimed at increasing road safety will be ready in December.

During his visit at the Kuźnica Białostocka-Bruzgi border crossing, the head of the government thanked Border Guard officers and employees of the Customs and Tax Service for their work which prevented billions of frauds. Thanks to your work and modern equipment, we have managed to prevent many cases of smuggling and thus avoid multi-billion loss to the state budget, continued Mateusz Morawiecki.

Thanks to those billions, today we have new roads and numerous social programs, the prime minister emphasized.

The head of the government also laid flowers at the monument of Konstanty Kalinowski in Mostowlany.
