Port of Gdansk has announced that 85% of work on the redevelopment of the road and railway system at the port has been executed, while an additional railway track leading to the DCT (Deepwater Container Terminal) has already been completed.
New tracks leading to the coal terminals and a modern railway traffic control system have also been implemented. Once the whole project is completed, Gdansk will have 5,600m of new roads, 16 junctions, 4 flyovers and a buffer car park for heavily goods vehicles.
The road and railway network expansion project at the Outer Port, executed by NDI company from Sopot, worth over PLN176 million (US$45 million).
The last land reinforcements, consisting in placing CFA (continuous flight auger) piles in the ramp leading to the WD-4 facility, have been completed, and earthwork is still in progress there. After completing the road surface work on the new roadway of Kontenerowa street, the contractor, NDI, is preparing to switch the traffic and redevelop the existing roadway. It will be the last stage of the works.
The construction of the WD-2 flyover, along with the ramps, has been completed. 95% of network work within the main collector sewers for rainwater has been executed and the redevelopment of the last sections of streets located within the port has started.
Moreover, a car park with a concrete surface for heavy goods vehicles is being constructed at Portowa street. "We are at the stage of preparing the 27 cm thick concrete surfaces," says Maciej Szymanski, construction site manager, NDI.
"The investment currently under way will streamline road and railway traffic within the part of the road system used to get to external terminals, primarily the DCT, Sea-Invest, and Gaspol terminals," says Lukasz Greinke, president of the Port of Gdansk Authority.
