Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki visits Dolnośląskie Voivodeship

I know, because this is where I come from, how much good such a road will bring to the region, how many lives will be saved and how it will contribute to the development of these lands said the Prime Minister during the ceremony of signing the contract for the extension of the national road No. 8 between Wrocław and Kłodzko in Dolnośląskie Voivodeship.

The Prime Minister emphasised the importance of this investment for the development of the region. “This is an extremely important event for Lower Silesia, especially for all cities along national road No. 8.” As he underlined, the road is very often called a “death road” by the locals. “We want it to be a safe road that will breathe new life in the south of Lower Silesia. We want it not only to attract tourists to this beautiful area, but also to make it easier to export goods from here, create new jobs and open new factories,” said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

He also noted that “infrastructure development is a part of Responsible Development Strategy”.

The Prime Minister also reminded that thanks to the activity of the Law and Justice the biggest Local Roads Fund in the history of Third Polish Republic has been created. For comparison, in 8 years PO and PSL spent about PLN 5 billion on local roads from the state budget. This is as much, or even less, as we, including this year, will spend on local roads that lead to larger arteries he said.

These will be the roads to better future of Poland and Poles said Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and at the same time thanked all the initiators of this investment.


National road No. 8 is the longest road in Poland. It runs through five voivodeships: Dolnośląskie, Wielkopolskie, Łódzkie, Mazowieckie and Podlaskie. It is also a Polish section of the international route E67, connecting Central Europe with Finland, and a fragment of the Via Baltica route.
