The new project had the designation 'ytwornia Chemiczne (chemical production) and was to be located in the wooded area between Dombrowsken (S 54/A 95) and Ostrokollen (S 54/A 95) on both sides of the road whih connects these two places. It was rumored that an ammunition depot for the Polish armed forces was to be constructed there. The area which covered more than one square km was surrounded by a fence constructed by civilian workers of state construction firms from Allenstein and Warsaw. Following a construction plan which had already been available, the geologists had to make five drillings up to a depth of 20 meters for each project. In the spring of 1954, and approach road which ran northward was built from the Prostken - Diugossen road. Rail connection from the Lyck - Bialystok line was planned. The bridge across the Lyck River was under construction. In April 1954, the work at the construction site was done by the civilian 2.'

The buildings projected about2.5 meters above the earth surface and were covered with earth on their sides. The installation allegedly manufactured explosives in May 1954. Personnel of the state construction firm in Bromberg were employed at the installation.2 Comment. CPN is the state organization for fuel supply. The construction 25X1 o a supply dump in this area is beported for the'first time. It is possible that a large dump is located in that area because the place is immediately west of the dividing line between the two railroad gauge systems. Since the change of the railroad gauge makes time-consuming re-laying raork necessary %nd the gauge chahge railroad stations would probably be exposed to air raids, the Soviets are attempting to _ establish a supply basis in the area of Brest. It is consequently believed that this dump is being constructed at Soviet request rather than for the Polish armed forces. Comme_ nt: Vague information indicated that a former Berman ammunition epo with a storing capacity of 20,000 tons of ammunition was located in the area of Bydgoszcz (Bromberg). The sizes mentioned in the report allow the conclusion that the dump possibly is the former German ammunition depot. Approved For Release 2008/09/11: CIA-RDP80-0081 OA007900600008-4
