Ex-Bielefeld tram modernised in Łódź
24 Mar 2015











POLAND: A modernised ex-Bielefeld type M8C tram is ready to enter service in Łódź.

City transport operator MPK Łódz bought 14 ex-Bielefeld Type M8C trams from Stropex in 2013. The modernisation of the first of these was finished in November after about six months of work at MPK Łódź’s workshops, and the certification process has now ended.

The bidirectional tram has been made 20% low-floor, and has received new traction and electrical equipment, front ends, seats, interior fittings, windows, doors with sensors and a passenger information system. The car bodies and bogies have not been replaced but have undergone an overhaul

Whatever, I like that postmodernist gothic revival design. Merely the colours might look a bit over the top but we'll see that when its done.

The investment in Lodz-Fabryczna-Station seems huge, so I hope they do this in mind of a future east-west-passage and Lodz will have the central-station where it has to be. Congratulations anyway for this investment. I really like how polish cities invest in public-transport in a very reasonable matter. I suppose that during the next decades it will be Poland making major efforts concerning this in EU. That´s what is really needed and where the money should go.

Kind regards

Cars. Trams will be on lvl 0.

Yes, this undregroud station is built with future tunnel to Kaliska Station in mind (with 2-3 additional stations inbetween, under the city centre), in fact it is already on the list and from what I can remember, financing should be secured in months.

Work progresses at new Lodz Fabryczna station
Wednesday, April 29, 2015



TRACKLAYING at the new Lodz Fabryczna station is well underway with 2km of the required 12.5km of track now in place for the station, which is set to become the hub of regional and long-distance railway services in the Polish city and a key interchange in the proposed Warsaw - Lodz - Poznan Y line high-speed network

Regular deliveries of construction materials for the track project began in February and at the end of March, Tines, Poland, which is responsible for laying track as a subcontractor to Torpol, laid the first section of slab track. A consortium consisting of Torpol, Astaldi and PBDiM is responsible for executing the project, which is partly funded by a €85.5m grant from the European Union, and is estimated to cost Zlotys 1.7-1.9bn ($US 470-520m)
