On the Płońsk Południe – Załuski section of the new S7 road under construction, road workers handed over the construction site to the contractor, who has already started the demolition of the bridge in Szczytno. This means that construction works are already underway on the entire nearly 35-kilometre section of the S7 between Płońsk and Czosnów.

Małgorzata Tarnowska, a spokeswoman for the Warsaw branch of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways, told PAP that the works on the construction of the new S7 between Płońsk and Czosnów are being carried out while ensuring continuous traffic through two lanes in each direction.

– The exception is the reconstructed bridge over the Vistula River and the vicinity of Kazuń, where a variable 2+1 lane arrangement is in force. This solution allows to maintain a higher capacity in a direction with more traffic – noted Małgorzata Tarnowska.

The demolition of the bridge is already underway

– On the section Płońsk Południe – Załuski, for which we recently obtained a decision on the road investment permit and handed over the construction site, the contractor started demolition works on the bridge in Szczytno. At the Płońsk Południe junction, it is dismantling the surface, removing barriers and acoustic screens. He also cuts trees, she stressed.

A spokeswoman for the Warsaw branch of GDDKiA indicated that earthworks were underway on the adjacent section of the S7 Załuski – Modlin under construction. – In the scope of bridge works, formwork, reinforcement and concreting of supports and wings are performed. On the section of S7 closest to Warsaw, between Modlin and Czosnów, structural layers of the road are being built. Existing bridges are being demolished to replace them with new ones. Collisions with the existing power grid are being reconstructed, she said.

Dual carriageway expressway with three lanes

– Let us remind you that in place of the current dual carriageway and two lane DK7, a dual carriageway expressway with three lanes will be built. The construction of the bridge over the Vistula river in Zakroczym will be supplemented with a pavement (on the line of the structure towards Warsaw) and a bicycle path (on the line of the structure towards Gdańsk). In addition, parallel roads will be built to handle local traffic, environmental protection and road safety facilities” – added Małgorzata Tarnowska.

The almost 35-kilometre section of the S7 Płońsk – Czosnów has been divided into three implementation tasks: Płońsk Południe (Siedlin) – Załuski, 12.9 km long; Załuski – Modlin with a length of 12 km and Modlin – Czosnów with a length of 9.7 km.
