Work progresses on Vistula embankment
Part of the Vistula Embankiment is soon to be handed over
POLAND Skanska has completed the construction work of an embankment along the river Vistula in Warsaw between Świętokrzyski Bridge and ul. Karowa with work having also begun on the neighbouring section of the structure– from ul. Karowa to Śląsko-Dąbrowski Bridge.

A technical inspection is now underway with the final handover expected sometime during the summer holidays. The project also included the development of a children’s water park, an outdoor stage, shaded terraces and a new cycle path. “The so-called snowy ledge will certainly be a popular spot in the summer. The name comes from the communist era when snow from the streets was dumped there. It is the widest section we modernised, with a width of over 30m. Now it has a sandy beach and terraces overlooking with views of the wild undeveloped banks on the Praga side,” claims Marcin Michalak, the project’s building site manager at Skanska. “There will be a children’s water park with fish figures and we’ve also installed ‘dancing’ fountains that will be lit up at night,” he adds. Additionally there are pavilions for cafés and restaurants. ‘The pavilions will be mounted on special buoys and moored to massive pylons and as a result will be safe when the Vistula rises,” adds Marcin Michalak from Skanska. Additionally there is a new cycle path and bicycle racks. New shrubs and trees have been planted along the embankment including silver lime, hornbeam, willow and barberry. In June 2016 the Seym of the Republic of Poland adopted a resolution to make 2017 the Year of the Vistula River and in December the Masovian Province did the same in order to celebrate the 550th anniversary of allowing free navigation down the Vistula. In total Skanska is to develop an embankment length of 1.2 km from the Copernicus Centre to the Śląsko-Dąbrowski Bridge in a contract worth over PLN 65.8 mln. The project is being funded by the European Union and the Polish government.
