A new roundabout will be built in Żoliborz – at the intersection of Przasnyska and Rydygiera streets. Road workers will start working on it on Wednesday, November 15. The route of line 221 buses will change. Drivers will have to go around the closed section.
On Wednesday, November 15, district road workers will start construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Przasnyska and Rydygiera streets. The intersection will be completely closed. The route of buses on line 221 will change – the capital city hall informed.
From Wednesday, November 15, drivers will not drive through the intersection of Przasnyska and Rydygiera. Access to all properties in the area will be maintained. You will be able to avoid the difficulties by using German, Krasińskiego, Powązkowska and Duchnicka streets.
– The reconstruction contractor will make every effort to open the intersection this year – declared the city hall, informing about the reconstruction of Przasnyska Street commissioned by the Żoliborz district.
Public transport on detours
During the works, buses from line 221 will travel differently: through Matysiakówny and Broniewskiego Streets and Aleja Wojska Polskiego, they will reach the Plac Grunwaldzki stop, where they will end their route. – So that they can safely turn around on the way back, one direction of traffic will be introduced between the roads of Wojska Polskiego Avenue, at Boguckiego Street. Travel will only be possible from the road towards Plac Inwalidów (southern) to the road towards Plac Grunwaldzki (northern), explained the town hall.
The Public Transport Authority announced that a permanent stop at pl. will be opened. Grunwaldzki 54, located on Rydygiera Street before the intersection with Matysiakówny Street.
– The pl stops will be restored. Grunwaldzki 11, 12, and the stops at pl. will be suspended. Grunwaldzki 14, Anny German 01, 02, Rydygiera 03, 04, pl. Niemena 03. The Przasnyska 03 stop is still suspended – ZTM reported.
At the rebuilt intersection, one crossing will be active, although narrowed – through Przasnyska Street from Duchnicka. Passersby will be directed to adjacent crossings.
The bicycle crossing through Rydygiera Street and the bicycle path to Rydygiera will be closed – from Hübner Street to Przasnyska Street.
Roundabout and additional renovations
The reconstruction of Przasnyska Street covers the section of the street from Duchnicka Street to Krasińskiego Street. Apart from the road, sidewalks will also be renovated. A roundabout will be built at the intersection with Rydygiera, and at the intersection with Krasińskiego, the geometry of the intersection with Krasińskiego will be improved (the Municipal Roads Authority will also build a roundabout here). Additionally, a part of Duchnicka at the confluence with Przasnyska will be renovated. The planned completion date of the entire investment is June 2024.
