The intersection at ul. Jagiełły/Dmowskiego/Mieszczańska has been under repair since 24th April. Building works will last till the end of October. Many changes have been introduced in traffic and transport schemes.
The rebuilding of the intersection is aimed at repairing the pavement and tram trackage, which is in poor condition.
One of the bigger changes will be the fourth lane at ul. Dmowskiego, on the roadway from ul. Długa. After rebuilding, a new left turn island will allow drivers to turn towards the Kosynierka Hall and new blocks of flats.
Tram and bus stops will be rebuilt. New lighting and traffic lights will be installed, and trees will be planted.
Changes for drivers
Drivers going from ul. Długa towards the centre will ride from ul. Dmowskiego and then down ul. Księcia Witolda, which is a one-way street along the section to the intersection with ul. Jagiełły and Mostowa. At the intersection, they can turn left towards Jagiełły and Dubois, go straight or turn right into ul. Mostowa and Podwale towards Plac Jana Pawła II.
From Plac Jana Pawła II towards ul. Długa or Kępa Mieszczańska, they will ride down ul. Jagiełły towards Mieszczańskie bridges, and then they have to turn around and ride over to the lanes towards ul. Dmowskiego and Mieszczańska.
Drivers riding from ul. Dubois towards Plac Jana Pawła II have to go towards the Most Dmowskiego bridge. There they have to turn around (ride over to the southern lane) and enter ul. Księcia Witolda, from which they can, for example, turn right towards Plac Jana Pawła II.
