We have completed the ninth month of work on the construction of the streetcar line to Mistrzejowice. Significant progress has been made on work concentrated on the area of the “Polsad Roundabout” station and on the reconstruction of the Dominican River canal. What else have we managed to complete?

Intensive work on the reconstruction of the Dominican Sudo has been going on all month. More than 200 meters of new channel have already been made. More.

In connection with the construction of the new course of the Dominican Sudol as part of the Tram to Mistrzejowice project, another stage of temporary traffic organization was introduced on March 16. There were closures and narrowing of road lanes, along with new traffic geometry in the area of Młyńska and Miechowity streets. More.

On March 14 and 28, a session of the Construction Council was held, attended by representatives of the Private Partner and Local Government Entities, including the Councils of Districts III Prądnik Czerwony and XV Mistrzejowice, and interested residents. 

On March 14, a field meeting was held between representatives of the Board of Roads of the City of Cracow, the City Traffic Engineer, the Public Transport Authority, the contractor and the public. Solutions to meet the needs of residents in terms of temporary traffic organization stage 2.4 were discussed and approved.

The progressive work on the tunnel has reached its scope to the northern shield of the Polsad Roundabout crossing the flyover. In March, the sinking of diaphragm walls at the “Rondo Młyńskie” station and the KST turnout chamber also began.  Along Krzeslawicka Street, track substructure work began.

This month, an educational meeting was held with students from the Krakow University of Technology. We also conducted workshops for children titled “Little Masters – Tram to Mistrzejowice” at the School-Kindergarten Complex with Integrated Departments in Przeginia Duchowna.

What will happen in April?

At the end of the month, it is planned to implement temporary traffic organization stage 3.0. The changes will concern the closure of the western roadway of Meissner Street on the section from Chalupnik Street to Śliczna Street.

Preparations are underway to begin earthworks for the track bed in the area of Mistrzejowice Loop.

We will continue works related to the Dominican Reservoir, which include, among other things, further installation of prefabricated elements and construction of the by-pass of the northern chamber. As in previous months, the reconstruction of underground networks will continue.
