Poland’s road authority head dismissed

Poland's road authority GDDKIA has a new chief as Infrastructure and Development Minister Elzbieta Bienkowska decided to dismiss Lech Witecki and appoint Ewa Tomal-Borucka for the post.

The new GDDKiA chief is expected to use the EU funds equally well as the current management, but contrary to the current management she is expected to make sure that road contracts are realized according to schedule.

Many contractors allege that GDDKiA under Witecki had forced them to take heavy losses on contracts to build Polish motorways, and even drove some into bankruptcy.

Firms that have been in dispute with the agency over payments include Austria's Strabag and Alpine Bau, Ireland's SIAC, SISK and Roadbridge, as well as a unit of Spain's Ferrovial, and a unit of Germany's Bilfinger.
Witecki had headed the agency since 2008, and oversaw a massive injection of cash. Roads were part of EUR 37.56 billion euro seven-year EU infrastructure program for Poland.
