I really like the interior of your Pesa trams. There arent many places to sit, but on the other side it offers a lot of space which will be useful during rush hours.
Cant wait to come to warsaw in 2012

Previous delivery of 15 trams has 2+1 arrangement, but passengers have protested. Our transport system isn't efficient enough for domination of sitting places during rush hours.


Maybe Czech Rep. won't play in Warsaw.

I has been living in Stockholm a few months, and believe me, not all transport systems have that problem.

Great-looking tram!

Pesa has fixed bogies. It's not a problem when it comes to Warsaw's network, because it has different characteristic than Praue's one for example.

The bogies aren't exactly fixed, as there is a small scope for manoeuvres (+/- 3 deg IIRC), but the bogies are definitely not using a typical pivot.

Start the second line of warsaw underground is delayed again. Recently gone third starting date. Now, it reads in newspaper that end of August is new date for make first excavations.

What's going on? Will they be able to finish it on time? Don't know but I think it's time to start worrying. More or less it's looks same like Dublin's underground line - they have plans, they want to build, but nobody knows when they start.

Indeed, it is a similar situation - as far as I know, Dublin's metro is quite a political decision (especially in the format incompatible with very successful LUAS..) and the same goes for Warsaw's M2.

More seriously - the schedule was never realistic in the first place (see above). Also, the project is being carried out in the "design and build" scenario which I find completely ridiculous, especially in the centre of Warsaw. This not only resulted in the line being one of the most expensive in Europe, but also in a lot of unforeseen problems in the design phase.

As a side note - the second 120Na tram has just arrived. Rumour has two are to follow it next week.
