Nowa Huta: tunnel to be added to route
Commuters in Nowa Huta have had the drive from one part of the neighborhood to the other simplified with the creation of a tunnel between Ruszcza and Wadow (different parts of Nowa Huta). For the longest time this tunnel was not on any bus path, making the journey twice as long. ZIKiT is now looking for contractors to install the proper lighting needed for public transport vehicles to use the tunnel. Currently, the 110 bus ends its journey right before the tunnel, forcing commuters to jump on a less frequent connecting bus. ZIKiT officials say that once the proper lighting fixtures are settled, the 110 will drive through the tunnel to the Wadow part of Nowa Huta.
