Warsaw's mayor sets out city’s PPP priorities

Warsaw's mayor, Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, addressed a breakfast meeting of the BPCC’s PPP policy group on 17 June at the British Embassy.

She focused on the city’s infrastructure projects that could be financed using the PPP model, in particular underground car parks under ul. Emilii Plater (between the central railway station, Palace of Culture and Złote Tarase mall), Pl. Defilad (between the Palace of Culture and the main shopping thoroughfares) and Pl. Teatralny (by the national theatre, near the Old Town).

The project envisages that a private sector consortium would design, build, finance, operate and transfer the car parks. Tendering will begin in 2010. The mayor’s presentation is available for download here.

Mrs Gronkiewicz-Waltz told members of the group that it was important that one pilot project could be completed, paving the way for many others, in sectors such as healthcare, education and social housing. Answering members’ questions, she said that the city would like to use the PPP model for the delivery of services as well as for capital projects.
