New route to the airport
Right now, to get to Okecie airport from Ursynów, one has to drive a huge loop all the way through to Ochota. The only alternative route from our Jeziorki to the airport is to bump along unmade roads and field tracks - not viable during the muddy season. A new route is being built. A viaduct over the the railway line is being built, linking ul. Poleczki and ul. Wirazowa, on the airport side. This means much more traffic for ul. Poleczki - as a result, the road is being widened all the way from ul Pulawska to the bridge. As always, roadworks mean traffic chaos, but that's just the way it is. The new route will save us over 2km, which in a morning rush-hour drive to the airport can mean an extra 15-20 minutes sitting in jams on ul Rzymowskiego and Marynarska.
