One of the most important tasks during the first period of reconstruction in the capital was to make the city's transport efficient. Horse-pulled carts and traction engines are used to clear the rubble. Roads are asphalted over the cobbles which have been cleaned. At the same time the tram network is being rebuilt. Currently tram carriages, over-head connections and cables are being fixed all over Warsaw. On June 20th the first tram carriage of the new regular public transport network appeared on the streets. In the coming weeks more tram lines will be launched. A train connecting Warsaw and Grójec has already come into operation. The future developments in reconstructing the city transport depend on reconstructing the bridges over the river Vistula. Our next bulletin in the coming edition of this newsreel will be a reportage on the reconstruction of bridges in Warsaw.
