Details of old building were taken off the building before demolition.
Moreover they will be used again as the new station will contain the station itself and the reconstructed facade of old building.

EDIT: It's not a catholic church, it's the orthodox church on Kilinskiego street.

Ok, yesterday was a big day. I don't have time to translate all of this, so google will do that for me:


They are building walls of Fabryczna station. And so for 8 months

On Monday, the train started putting the Lodz Fabryczna station walls. This is another important phase of the underground station. The walls will be formed by eight months

After digging a hole to a depth of eight meters, the building walls. There will be a slit method. First, special walls will be built on both sides of the wall of the future. Then głębiarka special gripper performs a narrow trench. During the work it is flooded with bentonite slurry, which means that the earth does not slip.

Cavity walls are made sections. The width of each of them will be between 2.8 and 7 meters. Reinforcement is then performed, which consists of a steel frame. Then, the gap is filled with concrete, which is introduced from the bottom. Displaced bentonite is discharged into reservoirs, where it is odpiaszczany so that it can be reused.

The walls of the train descended into the earth to a depth of over 20 meters. In some places, they have even 1.2 meters thick. They are built for four teams. The composition of each of them comprises two machines - a crane and głębiarka - and from 10 to 12.

According to the building permit obtained at the stage of formation of about 40 thousand. square meters of diaphragm walls. - At the same time taken will be approximately 250 Baret. This individual sections of the wall, which will be supported the roof. Their depth will amount to up to 40 meters - explains Catherine Rumowska, a spokeswoman for the project Fabryczna.

Contractor will use to build walls around 70 thousand. cubic meters of concrete and about 10 thousand. tons of steel. Also planned is the construction of the cement plant in the works. The work will be interrupted only by long-continued cold, below minus 10 degrees Celsius.

Still, we do not know the detailed schedule of works investment. Zareba Martin, director of contract on the part of the contractor, ensure that investors sent three weeks of work plans. - In addition, we are working on the basis of the overall schedule - Zareba said.

Radoslaw Stepien, Vice Mayor, however, is still waiting for the detailed document outlining the assignment of the various stages of work. - I had to ensure that we get the schedule - he adds.

For now, just know that the construction of the walls of the train is expected to last about eight months. Then on it will be lined ceiling. It will be left holes, through which it will be under the excavator roared to remove soil to a depth of over 16 meters.

PKP PLK also prepare the planned development of passenger flows, which are to be submitted for re-evaluation of the initiative Jaspers large investments EU evaluation. According to the first analysis on the basis of the preliminary draft Fabryczna railway construction was evaluated negatively. - We are currently preparing a new study. Should be ready at the beginning of the year - says Katarzyna Ziarkowska, project director of PKP PLK.
