The Port of Gdansk Authority is carrying out the largest investment programme in its history. One of its elements involves the expansion of the road and railway network at the Port Polnocny. It is one of the projects which received an 85% subsidy from the EU's Connecting Europe Facility. The NDI company, located in Sopot, responsible for carrying out the work, has just started the construction of a flyover on ulica Kontenerowa."The Port of Gdansk is the most rapidly developing port in Europe. It has been enjoying record transshipments for the last two years. Statistics show that several thousand containers are transported to and from the port daily. In order to ensure efficient handling of such a considerable volume of cargo, infrastructure of the highest quality is a must. The flyover, the construction of which we are officially inaugurating today, will cross a railway line, also undergoing expansion. This will make it possible for us to solve a significant problem we have had to date, posed by at-grade junctions," says Malgorzata Winiarek-Gajewska, President of the Board at NDI S.A."Infrastructure determines the port's potential. The transshipment volume keeps growing more and more rapidly, our partners are developing and expanding, and this is why we need to provide roads and railways that will facilitate efficient transport of goods. The project will fill a huge gap in the port infrastructure and will surely contribute to the Port of Gdansk getting to the very top among European ports," explains Lukasz Greinke, President of the PGA.As part of the road and railway network expansion project at Port Polnocny, ulica Poinca, Kontenerowa, and Budowniczych Portu Polnocnego will be converted. A fragment of ulica Nowa Portowa will be built. Another railway track leading to the DCT terminal will be added, along with new tracks leading to the coal terminals, and a modern railway traffic control system will be installed. The first buffer car park for heavy goods vehicles in this part of the Port will also be built.
