Prime Minister presents “Bridges for Regions” governmental programme

“In the upcoming years, we will propose a programme involving construction of 22 bridges over the Vistula, Oder, Bug, Narew, Pilica and Warta rivers, as well as in many places in Poland,” informed the Prime Minister during the press conference that took place on Tuesday at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister.

“We want to build bridges to unite Poland,” stated the Prime Minister.  He added that for the last 25 years, the development of Poland has been largely unbalanced, with large agglomerations growing faster. “We want to create development opportunities for smaller regions and poviat centres, where bridges are particularly necessary,” stated Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki.

The Prime Minister presented a bridge construction programme, which is to facilitate communication in regions and contribute to their economic growth and development of tourism. “Poland is a beautiful country, crossed by rivers. We want communication between individual gminas, especially those on opposite sides of rivers, to be easier,” said the Prime Minister.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki also stressed that Poland has “excellent engineers specialising in the art of building bridges”. He added that for the government it will be a key programme that will be financed from the local roads construction fund. “Compared to the last few decades, it will be the largest bridge building programme in the Poland, so important for people, solidarity and social cohesion,” stressed the Prime Minister.
