The Government will commit PLN 1.3 billion in total for this purpose, i.e. PLN 500 billion more that it was planned in the budget so far. This a key support for the local infrastructure and economy – said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. The Head of the Government emphasized that in order to ensure that the committed funds are optimal and used to the fullest extent he delegates the coordination and supervision of the programme to the voivodes. He said that this was a very important task and a great responsibility borne by the voivodes, and he was convinced that they would consider it a priority to ensure quick development of the Polish local road system.
Regional competitiveness based on local road infrastructure
Construction and repairs of the local roads represent the key aspect of our whole economic development, and the appropriate transport connections will allow to establish new distribution centres and production plants – said the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister believes that this will contribute to a more dynamic economic development in the particular voivodships. The Head of the Government added that the local roads require nor only repairs, reconstruction, but also new investments, so far neglected, are needed in gminas and poviats.
