Highway to Tarnow Opened at Last
Since last Thursday all drivers heading east from Krakow to Tarnow can take the newly open highway route. Unfortunately, only lane has been opened so far, and the road is available only for vehicles below 12 tons, as the whole passage is not finished yet.
Construction Supervisor's Bureau has conditionally approved the road for traffic to facilitate journeys eastward off Krakow and relieve the local road to Krakow. Before the new fragment was opened, the highway ended mid way, before Bochnia, and the traffic was redirected to minor roads, which caused numerous protests of the local residents.
The highway will be fully opened in March/April 2013.
