Interchange Poznań Luboń

From 6th May works on the slip road (exit from Warsaw direction - Poznań and Luboń direction). Works will be continued on the outside of the slip road. There will be no need to close traffic, except a limited period needed to place the wearing course (AWSA will inform about it in advance).

EARLY COMPLETION OF STAGE I OF THE POZNAŃ BYPASS WORKS

NEW TEMPORARY TRAFFIC ORGANIZATION TO BE LAUNCHED AS OF 24 APRIL

Stage I of the construction project at the Poznań Bypass has been completed.  The third lane was built in the section between Poznań Komorniki and Poznań Luboń interchanges and guard rails were installed. Now, the works will be shifted to the other carriageway.  On Easter Monday,  22 April, since 12:00 a.m. the road construction teams will begin preparations to change the temporary traffic organization.  The new scheme will be in place already on Wednesday 24 April, since the early hours. 

The first stage of the project was completed at an express pace of works and comprises 6 km of the third lane, with pavement matching the existing vertical alignment on the southern carriageway (Warsaw- bound) between the interchanges of Poznań Komorniki and Poznań Luboń.   Starting 24 April, the contractor - A2 Route/Strabag JV will launch the new traffic organization scheme.  All traffic will be diverted to the southern carriageway where 4 lanes will be available, separated by moveable barriers, two lanes in each direction. Only the slow lane in both directions will be available for heavy vehicles. The northern carriageway (Świecko-bound) will be fully occupied as a job site with third lane works carried out there.
The temporary organization scheme implemented last month in the section Poznań West - Poznań Komorniki will remain unchanged, i.e. traffic on each carriageway has two lanes available in each direction with the emergency lane fenced as job site.  That scheme will continue for the next weeks until the first half of June. 
As the works progress, the slip road from Poznań and Luboń to Świecko will be closed.

EARLY COMPLETION OF STAGE I OF THE POZNAŃ BYPASS WORKS

- We are happy to see the first, very important stage of the Bypass works completed as scheduled, at a very express pace.  The 12-hour working system involving almost 200 people using ca. 80 machines and vehicles coupled with round the clock work during the last weekends contributed to the completion of the third lane which matches the existing vertical alignment in the 6 km long section of the motorway,  says Zofia Kwiatkowska, the spokesperson for Autostrada Wielkopolska S.A. -The weather was fine so far, and it’s one of the major factors of successful performance.  We are also very happy to see that the temporary traffic organization scheme implemented some weeks ago has been working perfectly well, despite huge traffic volume reaching 60 thousand vehicles a day.  No standstills occurred, and traffic was as smooth as it was possible,  adds Kwiatkowska.

In the weeks to come the contractor will, among other works, dismantle the median and shoulder guard rails and rehabilitate the bridge structures.

A2 Motorway is the major international link between eastern and western Poland.  Around 65 thousand vehicles drive each day on the Poznań Bypass, which adds up to ca. 23 million drivers a year.  The cost of the works in the 16 km stretch of the Bypass is PLN 200 million and is fully funded by the employer, Autostrada Wielkopolska SA.  It is the first time that works involving widening of a motorway are performed under traffic, without closing the road, on the contrary, maintaining two lanes in each direction.

EXTENSION OF THE POZNAŃ BYPASS IS STARTING

In only 9 months the inhabitants of the Wielkopolska province capital and all drivers using the A2 motorway will drive in a modern, three lane Poznań Bypass. The first works related to the extension will commence on 1 March, and the entire project will have been completed by mid-2020.

During the first two weekends of March road crews will start fencing off the Bypass area where the works will be performed. Temporary entry lanes will be set out together with passageways in Poznań Komorniki and Poznań Luboń interchanges. The proper extension works will commence already in the second half of March. In the 16 km section between the Poznań West and Poznań Krzesiny interchanges, apart from the third traffic lane to be built in each direction, the pavement will be upgraded to adapt for higher traffic flow. In addition, safety rails and the entire lighting system will be replaced, new noise barriers will be installed and the existing ones will be extended along the entire route, tripling in size, to ensure better protection to a larger number of Poznań inhabitants. Moreover, in the 27 km section between Nagradowice and Gołuski 10 variable message sign boards will be installed to inform drivers about traffic situation in real time. in real time.

We are aware that the coming months will be difficult for all drivers. Such huge challenge of extending the city motorway bypass under traffic has never been taken up in Poland yet. Basing on our know-how and innovation we scheduled the completion of pavement works and replacement of rails and lighting half a year prior to the originally assumed date, that is by the end of the year 2019. Road works will be carried out in such way that traffic, to the extent possible, will flow smoothly in 2 lanes in each direction. The remaining works related to the extension and construction of noise barriers and the construction of 10 variable message signs will be completed in mid-2020. It should be noted that the project will be implemented in the scope largely exceeding the scope provided for in the concession agreement. Therefore, we hope that weather conditions will be favourable to road crews, and we will use our best efforts to perform as best we can, and above all in compliance with the plan – ensures Zofia Kwiatkowska, the spokesperson of Autostrada Wielkopolska SA.

The extension of the Poznań motorway Bypass is the first project of such complexity ever implemented in the motorway “under traffic” in Poland. Extremely important for millions of drivers not only from Poznań and neighbouring areas but also from the whole of Poland, it forms a part of the A2 Motorway, the main internal transport channel connecting eastern and western part of Poland. About 65 thousand vehicles drive in the bypass daily, meaning that almost 23 million drivers use the bypass during the year.
