As announced by Małgorzata Gajewska, spokeswoman for the Warsaw City Development Board, the demolition of the viaducts over Agrykola will begin at the turn of January and February. Later, a tender will be announced for the contractor of new flyovers over Paryska Street.

The upcoming reconstruction of the Trasa Łazienkowska viaducts will be a major operation lasting until March 2024. After 46 years of operation, they are no longer usable. Pieces of concrete fall off from the bottom, the structure is supported by metal supports, and the passers-by and cars passing through the Sedlaczka roundabout are protected by a net. On an ad hoc basis, speed limits of 40 kilometers per hour apply to the section of Łazienkowska Route leading through viaducts. Therefore, the viaducts between the Łazienkowski Bridge and the Vistula embankment will be dismantled. New ones will be built in their place.

Road workers are getting ready to perform this complex operation. – Preparatory work is currently underway to strengthen the southern viaduct. Currently, traffic on this viaduct takes place in three lanes. After the commencement of the works related to the demolition of the northern viaduct, the traffic will be taken over by the southern viaduct in four lanes – told us Małgorzata Gajewska, spokeswoman for the Warsaw City Development Board. She added that the need for reinforcement results from the technical expertise commissioned by the contractor.


Before the northern viaduct is demolished. Road workers have to agree and introduce temporary traffic organization. – According to the forecasts, the contractor will start demolishing the facility at the turn of January and February next year – Gajewska reported.

There will be big difficulties

The investment will be a huge challenge and it will surely mean difficulties. The annual research of the Municipal Roads Authority shows that Łazienkowski is the second, after Grota-Roweckiego, bridge most often chosen by drivers in Warsaw. 122,000 cars a day traveled between Śródmieście and Praga Południe in the summer.

As reported on tvnwarszawa.pl, In mid-August, road workers began the process of widening the southern viaduct to four lanes. Even then, the city recommended detours to Puławska and Goworka, Aleje Ujazdowskie or Waryńskiego and Spacerowa to Gagarin and Czerniakowska for heavy goods vehicles over 3.5 tons. It will also be possible to avoid the route by driving: Aleja Niepodległości, Wilanowska, Trasa Siekierkowska, Czerniakowska. After the commencement of work on the first of the viaducts, these will be basic detours for drivers who use the Łazienkowska Route on a daily basis.

The contractor for the reconstruction of the viaducts over Agrykola is the company Skanska. The cost of construction works is PLN 87.5 million. On the 400-meter-long section of the route, apart from new roadways, there will be two-sided pedestrian and bicycle routes, ramps, which will improve the accessibility of the road for people with mobility limitations, as well as modern lighting.

Flyover over Paris to be repaired

As Małgorzata Gajewska announces, this is not the end of the difficulties on the Łazienkowska route. Road workers are also getting ready for another investment on the Praga side of the Vistula River. – The Marshal of the Masovian Voivodeship has issued a decision ordering the expansion of noise barriers in the avenue of the United States on the section from Bajońska to International Avenue. In this section, there are flyovers over Paryska Street, which are in poor technical condition. They have to be dismantled and built from scratch, informed Gajewska.

For this purpose, the city received PLN 114 million under the government’s Strategic Investments Program. – We are currently waiting for a building permit. Within six months we have to announce a tender for a contractor for these works – Gajewska said.
