    Prime Minister Sees New Development Opportunities with Baltic Sea-Czechia Highway

    The Polish Prime Minister, Mateusz Morawiecki, has celebrated the inauguration of the A1 motorway which stretches from Gdansk, located on the Baltic coast, to the Czech border. According to Morawiecki, this highway will boost trade for Poland and create new development opportunities for the country. The A1 highway passes through the cities of Torun, Lodz, and Katowice, and its completion enables uninterrupted travel from the top to the bottom of Poland.

    During a press conference held on Thursday to mark the completion at the Kamiensk interchange between Piotrkow Trybunalski and Radomsko in central Poland, Morawiecki said that the new opportunities will also play a vital role in the Three Seas Initiative, a project that seeks to enhance transport and energy infrastructure between the 12 countries situated between the Baltic, Black, and Adriatic seas.

    “This is a new geopolitical dimension in the region between the Baltic Sea, the Black Sea, and the Adriatic,” Morawiecki said, adding that the road leading from Poland’s north to the south had been a disaster that claimed many lives. However, he now believes that, after the completion of the A1 highway, “it will be possible to reach the Polish-Czech border in 4.5-5 hours.”

    The prime minister praised the current road development policy, stating that “apart from highways and expressways, unprecedented funds are also being spent on local roads.” He was pleased that “Polish companies with Polish capital have been implementing such projects.”
