The second carriageway of the ring road of Nowogard of a length of 9.41 km opened to traffic. The target organization of traffic will be introduced on the route, all the junctions of the ring road will be fully put into operation. Since the end of October this year on the basis of the temporary traffic organisation one carriageway of the ring road was in operation, the main entrance and exit of Nowogard was a junction Nowogard North. After opening the second carriageway the elements of the temporary traffic organisation will be being disassembled, thus we appeal to drivers for caution.

Today in the afternoon hours drivers will drive the new carriageway of the bypass road of Miękowo. For a half of a year before the contractual completion date it is already possible to use both carriageways of the bypass road. The ultimate traffic organisation will be introduced on the route. Since July of this year one carriageway of the bypass has been operating on principles of the temporary traffic organisation with speed limits of 50 and 70 kilometres per hour and with an overtaking ban. Within next few days after making the second carriageway available for traffic, the elements of the temporary traffic organisation will gradually be abolished. Therefore, because there might occur some traffic congestions, we appeal to drivers for special care.
The new outlet of the expressway S74 from Kielce to Cedzyna towards Lublin and Rzeszów will be opened on Saturday.
