From Thursday, the organization of traffic on Sobieskiego Street will change. Road workers will improve the passage of buses in the area of ​​ongoing works in connection with the construction of tram tracks to Wilanów, announced the capital city hall.

Works are currently being carried out on the following streets: Puławska, Spacerowa, Belwederska and Jana III Sobieskiego. The first rails have been delivered and await assembly at the construction site.

On Spacerowa Street, Budimex, the investment contractor, is rebuilding underground installations and pouring foundations for traction poles. The new tracks at Dworkowa Street will soon be covered with further layers of concrete. On Belwederska Street, teams are working on a new rainwater drainage system. At Spacerowa, at Jana III Sobieskiego and at Wilanowska, the construction of three electrical substations is under construction.

The first trees have already been planted – since the beginning of November there are over 130 lindens and hornbeams. As the officials remind, a total of one thousand trees will be planted along the entire route of the tram to Wilanów.

They monitor the streets in the work area

The City Hall assures that from the beginning of construction, the streets in the area of ​​works on the tram route to Wilanów are carefully monitored by road services and public transport traffic supervision. “This made it possible to learn about the behavior of drivers and passengers that changed after detours were marked out. Based on this data, the traffic organization on the section of Jana III Sobieskiego Street – between Beethovena and Dolna Streets” – indicated in the communication on this subject.

It has been calculated that during rush hours, nearly 50 public buses, operating on eight lines, move towards the center on Jana III Sobieskiego Street. These vehicles are able to transport almost six thousand passengers per hour. Thanks to the improvement of their travel, it will be possible not only to shorten the travel time, but also to improve the punctuality of Warsaw Public Transport vehicles.

Changes in traffic from Thursday

On Thursday, January 5, from the very morning, road workers will provide a bus lane towards the center on Sobieskiego Street. It will operate from van Beethoven Street almost to the very intersection with Dolna and Chełmska Streets. As before, individual drivers going towards Śródmieście will have one lane at their disposal – next to the bus lane. Before the intersection with Dolna and Chełmska, there will be one lane for turning left and another for driving straight and right.
