290 investment tasks on local roads in Podlaskie Voivodeship will be co-financed from the Governmental Fund for Local Government Roads (FDS), the Podlaskie Voivodeship Office has informed PAP. The list of investments has already been approved by the voivode and the final decision will be taken by the Prime Minister.
Record funding for local roads
PLN 263.2m is available for distribution in 2019 within FDS in Podlaskie Voivodeship, in the recruitment process lasting from mid-March to mid-April this year. In addition, in recent weeks the amount of PLN 69m was also distributed, which was transferred to the fund from the local road modernization program in force a year earlier. In total, therefore, the pool included PLN 332m. As the Podlaskie Voivode Bohdan Paszkowski stressed, this is a record-breaking amount of funds for local roads in the region, which in previous years and programmes were never as much as today.
The list of investments recommended for support included 90 projects on district roads and 200 on communal roads. County roads will be co-financed with the amount of PLN 136.2m, and communal roads with the amount of PLN 185.9m. The value of all 290 investments, including the own contribution of local governments, is over PLN 605m.
The highest grant in the history of Lomza County
The Lomza county plans to carry out investments for a total of PLN 21m, 60% of which will come from FDS. At the same time, these are the highest external funds raised for road investments in the history of the county. As part of the allocated funding, approximately 10 km of district roads and a bridge located in Dobrzyjałowo will be rebuilt or renovated. Money for its renovation comes from the funds of the reserve of the Ministry of Infrastructure. All investment tasks in the district are to be completed by the end of next year.
