From today, drivers can drive a 16-kilometer section of the S14 expressway from the Aleksandrów Łódzki junction to Emilia near Zgierz. Minister of Infrastructure Andrzej Adamczyk, Minister of Culture Piotr Gliński and Minister of Foreign Affairs Zbigniew Rau appeared at the opening of the route. A moment after the speeches of PiS politicians ended, local government officials from Łódź approached them and asked about investments in the city, such as the construction of a tunnel under Łódź. There was a brawl.

Łódź is the first city with a motorway-express ring

– The construction of the Łódź ring road has been completed. This is the ring road of the first large city in Poland that has been completed. This is a huge facilitation for the inhabitants of the region, but also for nationwide transport due to the central location of Łódź. This is really good news – said Minister of Culture Piotr Gliński. In turn, the Minister of Infrastructure, Andrzej Adamczyk, emphasized that Łódź is the first city in the country with a full motorway ring, but – as he announced – Kraków will soon have a full ring road, followed by Szczecin and Warsaw. – First of all, it is good news that the roads in this region of the country are becoming safer. We have recently commissioned the A1 motorway south of Łódź, and soon the railway tunnel will become a real element of the transport system of the Łódź agglomeration, especially the railway transport system in Poland. These and similar investments are being implemented in every region of our country – he emphasized.

A row with local government officials from Łódź

After the ceremonies related to handing over a section of the S14 road to politicians PIS Lodz local government officials approached. The chairman of the city council Marcin Gołaszewski, councilor Mateusz Walasek and Bartosz Domaszewicz. They “thanked” the Minister of Infrastructure, among other things, for the lack of the Łódź-Teofilów junction. – Thank you for the motorway ring, which has no exit to Łódź, these are thanks on behalf of the inhabitants – said Marcin Gołaszewski to Andrzej Adamczyk. KO councilor Mateusz Walasek tried to ask about the cross-city tunnel being built under Łódź. – Maybe the minister will tell us when he will stop flooding Aleja Włókniarzy? When the foam stops coming out, because trams do not run because of it – the councilor pointed out. The Minister of Infrastructure did not answer the questions. Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau tried to talk to the chairman of the city council. – Let me tell you something, your contribution to this investment is really not impressive, today we are experiencing its apogee, thank you – said Rau. After talking to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Marcin Gołaszewski started a loud discussion with PiS councilors in the city council.

Let us remind you that the junction was built, but it is named Aleksandrów Łódzki and you can only leave it in the direction of this city. In the direction of Łódź, no. One of the requirements for the exit to the capital of the Łódź Voivodeship to be created is the renovation of Szczecińska Street, which will lead to the expressway. There was a long struggle between the government and the city over who should finance the renovation of this street.

Finally, in February, an agreement was signed between Łódź and GDDKiA about the connection of the Aleksandrów Łódzki junction with Szczecińska Street. As part of this, the management will build a dual carriageway connector, and the city will expand Szczecińska Street. GDDKiA has announced a tender for the execution of the investment.

The new section of S14 has two roadways with two traffic lanes and an emergency lane with a bituminous surface. The value of the contract, which was carried out by the Chinese company Stecol Corporation, amounted to PLN 811 million. The construction of two sections of S14 was co-financed by the European Union under the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment in the amount of PLN 903.6 million.
