The afternoon storm that passed over the capital caused difficulties for drivers on Wisłostrada. At the height of the Gdański Bridge, the road was flooded. Especially those driving towards Mokotów got stuck in traffic jams.
A huge puddle appeared under the Gdański Bridge, near the bus stop towards Mokotów. In the photos of our reporter, Mateusz Szmelter, we can see that the right lane of the road and part of the middle lane are under the water. This caused a lot of difficulties for drivers. Some tried to avoid the pool, others took risks, gliding through it at a slow pace.
In turn, the recording that we received on Kontakt 24 shows that at one point both roads were almost completely flooded.
Although the situation caused considerable difficulties for drivers, the water quickly disappeared from the road. – Movement is now normal. There is no trace of the water anymore – our reporter reported around 5.15pm.
