Poland opens new canal for ships from the Baltic Sea to the Vistula Lagoon ports

PolandTop leaders of the United States celebrated Saturday the opening of a new – albeit incomplete – canal which they say will mean ships are no longer safe RussiaPermission from the Baltic Sea to the ports of the Vistula Lagoon.

It was time to mark the event 83 years after the Soviet invasion of Poland during World War II and to symbolically display Moscow’s say over the economy and development of the region bordering Russia’s Kaliningrad exclave. The government says the waterway gives Poland full sovereignty in the northeastern region, which is in need of investment and economic development.

Polish President Andrzej Duda said, “The idea was to open this waterway and no longer require permission from a country that is not friendly and whose authorities do not hesitate to attack and subdue others.”

He said the investment would be paid off through an increase in the value of the land around it, through the development of cities and ports on the lagoon due to an increase in trade, trade and tourism.

A few thousand people with national white and red flags gathered in the rain to watch the Zodiac II technical ship pass through the water gates for the opening of the canal. The national anthem was played and the ships blew their horns.

Small ships and boats are expected to be allowed on Sunday.

The leader of Poland’s right-wing ruling party, Jarosaw Kaczyski, told the crowd that it was “the beginning of Poland’s fourth major port (Elbg) and a new impulse for the development of this land” that would reduce unemployment, which is one of Poland’s most important ports. It is one of the highest cities. It is now at 7.6 per cent.

Kaczynski emphasized the construction of the canal that “Poland is a truly independent, sovereign and strong nation that matters.”

The canal, built at a cost of about 2 billion zloty ($420 million), cuts across the Vistula Spit east of Gdansk, allowing ships to pass through the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Gdansk to the smaller ports of Elblg and Lagoon. Obtaining authorization to travel through the Strait of Pilava, Russia. This shortened the Baltic-to-Elblag route by about 100 kilometers (54 nautical miles).

However, cargo ships could not use the route until the access to the Port of Elblg was 5 meters (16 ft) deep. The work is expected to cost 100 million zloty ($21 million), a source of controversy between the national government and city officials.
