Development impulse for the Polish road construction sector

20 april 2020
The Local Roads Fund governmental co-financing for modernization and implementation programs of road investments in the pipeline - this is a part of the plan-scheme announced by the Government and the Ministry of Infrastructure

The Polish economy strengthening and alleviation of the crisis effects caused by the coronavirus epidemic requires appropriate actions, thus  Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and the Minister of Infrastructure Andrzej Adamczyk presented plans which will have a positive impact and stimulate Polish economy at many levels.

Strengthening the Local Roads Fund and allocation of additional funds for road construction is one of the governmental programmes’ main assumptions. In 2020, the total of 3467 km of roads are to be built, including about 1708 km of poviat (county) roads and 1759 km of municipal roads. In total, over PLN 3.2 billion will be earmarked in the Government’s Local Roads Fund for this purpose.

In 2019, the funds allocated for the implementation of municipal and poviat road infrastructure tasks amounted to nearly PLN 4.5 billion. This resulted in 6 thousand km of roads.

Road investments are a key element in the Polish economy stimulation.  Undertakings related to the Government Local Roads Fund are designed to support both local governments in modernizing road infrastructure, and also to be the tool designed to combat the so-called transport exclusion.  The construction industry may prove to be the driving force at the times of economic downturn. The road construction sector offers the impulse to activate small and medium-sized enterprises.
