New bridge opens in Warsaw
After 33 months of construction and a two-day opening ceremony, the first cars drove on Sunday over a new bridge in Warsaw called the Maria Skłodowska-Curie Bridge.
The 800-meter-long bridge, which links the Polish capital’s northern districts of Białołęka and Bielany, will shorten the drive for many city residents who want to get to the city center.
On Saturday, according to city officials, some 50,000 people walked across the bridge, from which a spectacular view of the city skyline can be seen. Trams are expected to start running across the bridge at the end of the year. The bridge will also get lanes for pedestrians and bikes.
