The European Commission has today approved an investment of nearly €227 million from the Cohesion Fund for the construction of a motorway section between Mińsk Mazowiecki and Siedlce.

The funds will be used to build a 37.43 km section of the A2 motorway. Works include the construction of infrastructure, such as bridges, viaducts, culverts and animal passages. The section is located in the Mazowieckie voivodeship and is part of the North Sea Baltic corridor of the core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T).

In addition, three junctions will be built – at Groszki, Gręzów and Swoboda – to connect the A2 motorway with the DK2 national road. The entire section will have two traffic lanes and an emergency lane in each direction.

The project will bring multiple benefits to citizens, amongst which an increase in the comfort for long-distance travellers, shortened journey times, a lower risk of accidents and fewer exhaust emissions.

The project will facilitate efficient movement of people and goods, which will foster social and economic development, including in the areas adjacent to the new road.

The EU’s trans-European transport network policy, the TEN-T policy, is a key instrument for the development of coherent, efficient, multimodal, and high-quality transport infrastructure across the EU. It fosters the efficient transportation of people and goods, ensures access to jobs and services, and enables trade and economic growth. It strengthens the EU’s economic, social and territorial cohesion and creates seamless transport systems across borders, without physical gaps, bottlenecks or missing links.

Poland, through national and regional programmes, benefits from EUR 78.3 billion of cohesion policy funding under the "investment in jobs and growth" goal with funding from the ERDF, ESF+, CF and JTF.
