We have great news for drivers from the West Pomeranian Voivodeship. Half a year ahead of schedule, road workers opened the Przecław and Warzymice bypass along DK13. The new road will shorten the travel time from Szczecin to the Polish-German border in Rosówek.
According to GDDKiA, the Przecław and Warzymice bypass is a dual carriageway with two lanes in each direction. As part of the investment, two road viaducts and a roundabout were built at the connection with the existing route of DK13. You can travel at a speed of 100 km/h on the ring road; bicycles, slow-moving vehicles and pedestrians are prohibited.
“The construction of the S3 expressway, which is crucial for connecting the Szczecin-Świnoujście port complex with the south of Poland, the tunnel in Świnoujście and the Western Bypass of Szczecin are examples of investments important for the economic development of the region and improving the comfort of living and traveling for the inhabitants of Szczecin and the surrounding area” – said Deputy Minister of Infrastructure Marek Gróbarczyk.
The bypass was built in two years
The contract for the implementation of an investment worth PLN 85.9 million was signed with Budimex in March 2021. The works started in mid-2021. In May this year, the surface work was completed and finishing works began. The fast pace of work allowed the road to be completed half a year before the contract deadline.
Now it’s time for the second stage of work
The Przecław and Warzymice bypass that has just been handed over to drivers is the first stage of works on the DK13 section from Szczecin to the Polish-German border in Rosówek. Road workers are already working on the next one. Currently, they are preparing tender documentation for the construction of the second stage of the Przecław and Warzymice bypass along DK13 (2.3 km) along with the construction of the Kołbaskowo bypass. In the future, these roads will constitute a joint route of the S6 expressway (Western Bypass of Szczecin) and DK13.
