New road investment

In July 2018, a communal road connecting the Economic Activity Zone in Iłowa with the voivodeship road No. 296 will be built. The new communication route is of great importance for the economic development of the municipality of Iłowa  “It is the largest and most important road investment in the history of our municipality. It will provide us with development for the next several years” says Paweł Lichtański, the mayor of Iłowa. In the Economic Activity Zone investment plots for sale have already been prepared. As part of the investment a new, one kilometer long, road will be built.  The road will enable fast communication of economic entities with the network of provincial and national roads, and in particular with the A18 motorway. An asphalt bicycle path, a pedestrian walkway, hybrid lighting and teletechnical infrastructure will be built. The total value of the investment reaches PLN 5.4 million.

CTP Invest Group in the Economic Activity Zone

A modern industrial and business park in the Economic Activity Zone in Iłowa will be built by the CTP Invest Group, one of the largest developers in Europe. Piotr Klank, regional director of CTP Invest in Poland, says:  “The area in Iłowa is strategically located both on a micro scale (excellent visibility, target communication, technical infrastructure and location within the Special Economic Zone) and a macro scale (strategic communication route Berlin – Wrocław, the border area between Poland and Germany), which in our opinion may repeat the success of the investment areas of north-western Poland.”
