On Monday, October 25, at the earliest, a decision will be made on fire safety in the tunnel of the Southern Bypass of Warsaw – the fire brigade informs. As we found out, the fire protection system is working, but also this time some minor flaws were found.

– We have to wait with the decision until Monday. The documentation is currently being analyzed. We check whether it is complete, whether all required certificates are present, and whether it complies with all fire regulations – was provided by tvnwarszawa.pl Karol Kierzkowski, press officer of the Provincial Headquarters of the State Fire Service in Warsaw.

As we have established, the tunnel’s fire protection system works, but minor deficiencies have been detected. – There are two options: we will either give a positive feedback with comments or it will be negative. Then the procedure will be resumed – added Kierzkowski.

Firefighters conducted a tunnel inspection on the Ursynów section of the South Bypass of Warsaw from Monday. The tests concerned, among others, ventilation and fire detection systems.

There is a consent of the Department of Health

Earlier, a spokeswoman for the Warsaw branch of the General Directorate for National Roads and Motorways, Małgorzata Tarnowska, said that a positive opinion about the tunnel had already been issued by the Sanepid. – The inspectors did not make any comments to the documentation or to the works carried out – said Tarnowska. – A fire brigade inspection is ongoing. The next step will be to submit an application for inspection by the Provincial Inspector of Building Supervision in Warsaw – she added.

As Tarnowska previously informed, the final stage of the acceptance process is the control of the Mazowieckie Voivode. – After checking the safety documentation and receiving the opinion of the safety officer, it will give the permission to open the tunnel. This decision will give us the green light to allow for S2 traffic between the Puławska and Warszawa Wilanów junctions along with the tunnel – said the spokeswoman, adding that according to the assumptions it will happen this fall.

Delayed tunnel

Author:As reported on tvnwarszawa.pl, the opening of the tunnel under Ursynów along the Southern Ring Road of Warsaw has been postponed many times. At the end of September, we wrote about the faulty surface. It was about “lack of the required frost resistance” in the approximately 400-meter section, outside the tunnel. The contractor had to carry out repair work at his own expense.

Author:Initially, the entire investment, consisting of three stages, was to be commissioned in August 2020. However, it was not until December, just before Christmas, that two sections were opened: from the Lubelska junction to Przyczółkowa. In the case of the tunnel near Ursynów, in accordance with the annex to the contract, the time for completion of works was extended until the end of March 2021. The reason was, among other things, a long procedure of obtaining a permit for a road investment. Then the investor declared that the drivers would go through the tunnel in the second quarter of 2021, which was also not met. Currently, the opening date of the tunnel is unspecified.
