A second tranche of €200m ($274m) has been offered by the European Investment Bank (EIB) for the extension of Polish motorways.

The EIB said it will be co-financing the construction of a section of A1 motorway and A4 motorway, and the rehabilitation of a section of the A6 motorway.

The current loan plan will take the EIB’s co-financing of Poland’s transport projects, since 1990, to around €10bn ($13.7bn).

Earlier, the motorway upgrade programme had received a loan of €300m ($412m) from the EIB.

EIB vice-president Marta Gajecka said EIB funds will help to eliminate bottlenecks on the main motorway network on Poland’s borders with other EU member states by providing additional capacity and improving the quality and safety of the existing infrastructure.
