Budimex SA and the State Water Holding Polish Waters Regional Water Management Board in Szczecin signed a contract in September 2021 for the reconstruction of a railway bridge over the Regalica River in Szczecin. The proposed bridge is set to increase the capacity of the railway line No. 273 and expand the capacity for inland navigation.
Budimex is set to complete the PLN 282 million project in 25 months. This project is financed by the World Bank, the European Union and the national budget.
The aim of the investment is to adjust the existing railway bridge to the minimum clearance, ensuring the effectiveness of ice-breaking actions. The bridge in its existing condition does not meet the requirements, hinders and often suspends the icebreaking action. The scope of the project includes partial demolition of the existing bridge over the railway line and construction of a new bridge. The new bridge will be built in the vicinity of the existing one. The planned structure will be elevated about 6.2 m above the level of high navigable water. All that will be left of the old structure is the drawbridge span, which is listed in the register of historical monuments.
The works will be carried out as part of the governmental Flood Protection Project in the Oder and Vistula Basin.
It will increase flood protection in the capital of Western Pomerania and will ensure more efficient navigation and the possibility of more effective work of icebreakers. The works will increase the clearance of the bridge, the structure of which will be raised about 6.2 m above the waterline.
