Sweco to supervise construction of tunnel between Polish islands

17 September 2018

Sweco has been commissioned to supervise the construction of a tunnel under the Świna River in Poland. The tunnel will connect the islands Uznam and Wolin, facilitating mobility and supporting economic growth in the region.

The construction of an underwater tunnel connecting the islands in Świnoujście will significantly shorten travel time, benefitting everyone travelling or living in the region. The tunnel will have a length of approximately 3.2 kilometres.

“This investment is important not only for people living in the surrounding area, but for everyone travelling this route. The new connection between two islands will be more accessible, significantly shortening the travel time and contribute to economic growth in the region. I have no doubt that our knowledge and experience will allow us to successfully implement this project”, says Maciej Chrzanowski, Head of Sweco Consulting in Poland.

The order value exceeds EUR 4 million. The project is commencing right away and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2022.
