Contract for the construction of the S19 road between Lublin and Kraśnik (part of the international via Carpatia) was signed 28th February 2018 in Kraśnik.
The section has been divided into three parts. The middle one (from the Niedrzwica Duża junction to the Kraśnik Północ junction – about 20 km) will be designed and build by Mota-Engil Central Europe. The ceremony was attended by the Minister of Infrastructure, Mr. Andrzej Adamczyk. The implementation is planned in the “Design and build” system.
A dual carriageway expressway will be created, with a bituminous surface with a reserve for the third lane outside. From the end of the western bypass of Lublin, it will initially run along the current national road No. 19. Then it will go east of it, bypassing Niedrzwica Duża, Niedrzwica Kościelna and Sobieszczany, to pass through the forests before Wilkołaz in the corridor of the current road (avoiding the city from the east) and then follow it on west side. In Lasy village before Kraśnik the express road will cross the present national road No. 19, bypassing the city from the east.
The drivers will be able to use new road in the spring of 2021.
