The protests of health care workers, announced for a long time, will take place in Warsaw on Saturday. Residents must take into account the difficulties in the city center. The changes also apply to buses and trams.
On Saturday, September 11, a great demonstration of medical professionals organized by the Resident Alliance is to take place in Warsaw. The protest will start at Krasiński Square, where participants will gather from 11.30. The demonstration is expected to start at 12.00 PM. The protesters will then pass in front of the building of the Ministry of Health, the Presidential Palace and the Sejm building. The protest is to end at the Chancellery of the Prime Minister around 4 p.m.
Changes in the timetables of buses and trams
During the march, the streets will be closed to traffic. Public transport vehicles will also be directed to the detour routes. This applies to buses of the following lines: 100, 116, 178, 180, 503, and 518. Additionally, the routes of the tram lines may also change 7, 9, 22, 24, 25 and buses: 106, 107, 108, 109, 111, 117, 118, 127, 128, 158, 159, 166, 171, 175, 195, 222, 507 and 521.
During the upcoming weekend, September 11-12, the Royal Route will not be a promenade, and traffic will be carried out as on weekdays. Buses running along Nowy Świat and Krakowskie Przedmieście will return to the main routes. This will only change when the medics march.
Paramedics fight for higher wages, and they do not agree to extremely difficult working conditions. On September 1, they started a nationwide protest. Some of them did not come to work or took the minimum number of hours on call. Due to the lack of available ambulances, helicopters of the Polish Medical Air Rescue were sent to many events in Warsaw and its vicinity.
