Rule 130
Janusz Lewandowski (PPE)

 Subject:  Construction of the S6 expressway in Poland
 Answer in writing 

I have recently received worrying information concerning the construction of the S6 expressway, one of the most important infrastructure projects in Pomerania — my regional constituency as an MEP.

During the TEN-T network negotiations, the Commission and the Member States acknowledged that the S6 expressway was a key element of the transport axis linking Germany, northern Poland, Kaliningrad and the Baltic states. That axis also includes core network airports in Szczecin and Gdańsk, the seaports of Szczecin and Świnoujście, Gdańsk and Gdynia, rail line 202, and its most important link, the S6 road, which is part of the TEN-T comprehensive road network.

Last year, the Polish Government made changes to the national road-building plan for 2014-2023 (looking ahead to 2025), removing references to a completion date for the Koszalin-Trójmiasto section of the S6 (with the exception of sections of the ‘Kashubian’ part of the expressway, known as the Trasa Kaszubska). The prospects of any public-private partnership type of investment being made in the project are, in practice, non-existent.

Is the Commission aware that the completion of the TEN-T network in northern Poland, which is co-financed by the EU, is under threat?

Is the Commission intending to take any action on this matter?
