The Szczecin branch of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways informed that sectional speed measurement will operate in the tunnel. “The #tunnelŚwinoujście ride with the permitted speed of 50 km/h will take 3-4 minutes, the queues for ferries were often long hours. Compliance with the regulations will be ensured by sectional speed measurement” – it was posted on Twitter.

Swinoujscie Tunnel

The road between the islands of Wolin and Usedom will be approximately 3.2 km long. The part hollowed out by the TBM machine is 1484 meters long.

The crossing under the strait of Świna will connect the island of Wolin with the island of Uznam, where the administration and service center and the seaside district are located, and thus will end the communication problems of Świnoujście residents and tourists. Currently, the connection between the islands of Wolin and Uznam is provided by ferry crossings that do not have sufficient capacity, which is often associated with long waiting for the ferry.

The investor is Świnoujście, and the project manager is the Szczecin branch of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways. The contractor is a consortium of PORR/Guelermak companies. The construction cost is over PLN 900 million, of which almost PLN 775.7 million comes from EU funds. Świnoujście contributed the rest from its own budget.
