EU-funded works will improve road safety and shorten travel time between major cities and regional centres in the country.This road is also part of the Baltic-Adriatic corridor on the Trans-European transport network and of European route E77, which links Budapest to the Russian border in Estonia. Elżbieta Bieńkowska, Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, said that as crucial transport link, this road from Napierki to Płońsk will not only improve the road connectivity in Poland but will also help in deepening the single market, with faster, easier travel and trade from the North of Europe to the South. This project, expected to be operational in May 2021, complements other sections of the S7 expressway, also financed by the EU, from Koszwały, near Gdańsk, to Napierki, as well as the Ostróda ring road.
