Abstract:

Poland's transportation network is a victim of two world wars, foreign domination, and neglected maintenance, but there are ambitious plans to rebuild the road and rail systems. The author, a U.S. bridge engineer who spent three months in Poland as a guest of Poland's General Directorate of Public Roads and others involved in the transport infrastructure, explains how the highway and rail systems are managed; plans for new construction; standard contract arrangements; and the high quality of Polish engineers.
