VILNIUS, May 17, BNS – A four-lane road will link Lithuania and Poland by 2022, the two countries' minister say. The Polish stretch could be built a bit earlier, by 2021.
"Four lanes will reach the border in Poland in 2021-2022," Polish Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk told BNS Lithuania on Thursday, hoping that Lithuania would build a four-lane road on its side at the same time.
"We both expect those two roads to connect by 2022. The Poles might finish it a bit earlier," Lithuanian Transport Minister Rokas Masiulis told BNS Lithuania.
He also said he would discuss with his Polish counterparts ways to make the Via Baltica a smart road.
The four-lane international Via Baltica highway is set to link Tallinn, Riga, Kaunas and Warsaw.
