In the overall question of planning the reconstruction of Warsaw, the matter of making opening transport links across right and left banks of the Vistula better is of tremendous significance. As we know, currently only a wooden bridge, built by Soviet sappers during the Winter Offensive, is available. An intensive reconstruction of the bridge is in progress. Divers are involved, planting explosive materials underwater in order to clear the foundations of the destroyed bridge. The most complex work involves the reconstruction of the train bridge. The plan is that by 1st of February 1946 the train connection, complete with its iron bridge construction, will be finished.
