In December 2005 has been opened the new 2,2 km long tramway stretch. The entire network is now 121 km long.



New pics from Marymont Metro Station construction site. Opening is planned for this year.







The route of the second metro line has been decided. Construction of the first central stretch is planned for the years 2008-2012.

Those commuter trains look nice. The light rail reminds me of the Docklands Light Rail in London.

Trams, subway, commuter rail and heavy rail; that's quite an extensive public transport network for a city of 2 and a half million! Some of the stations and rolling stock look quite old but the refurbishment of those old trains looks great and the new trams to be delivered look really good.

Impressive network you've got in Warszawa (trams, underground, commuter rail and heavy rail) and the stations look very modern and clean. I like the aesthetics!
What surprises me is that the distances between the stations aren't that big, another thing that caught my attention were the trams. We're not talking alstom, bombardier, ansaldobreda and still so incredibly good looking and modern. See, countries don't need to turn to big expensive firms, just follow the crotram model.
Does anybody know how much does one of those new polish trams costs?

As I've already explained It's not the entire Warsaw public transport system, we have also huge bus network, but traffic jams are terrible.

Warsaw Plans 2nd Subway Line

Warsaw plans second subway line to relieve strained transport system
29 May 2006

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Warsaw's subway authority said Monday it would seek bids next year for a company to build a new line aimed at relieving a strained public transport system.

The new line is expected to cost around 6 billion zlotys (US$2 billion; euro1.5 billion), and the city council expected the European Union would cover between 50 percent and 80 percent of the cost, the authority said.

The line should take three years to build, it said.

Poland's capital city, with a 1.7 million population, has only one subway line, traveling north to south, with 16 stations and another five under construction.

The authority also signed a 1 million zloty (US$330,000; euro250,000) deal with the Warsaw University of Technology for the school to provide technological help with the construction of the new line, which will run from east to west.

Under the terms of the three-year agreement, students and professors will provide advice on issues such as environmental protection and energy supply.

Yeah

They will start building the line in 2008, but I think that it's only a dream If it will start in 2009 it will be good.

Good to see the EU funds starting to be applied where they are needed. Better transport makes Warsaw more productive, and thus, more able to increase its economic output.

The EU funding transport systems isnt a new idea. The UK, Spain, Italy amongst other wealthy countries have all received money to help build infrastructure. Getting money doesnt always mean economic output improves - Southern Italy for example has not had the economic regeneration expected despite getting money to improve transport, so there is no gurantee it will work for Warsaw.

I'm sure plenty of people would also disagree with Poland getting EU money when in recent years its decided to regress backwards socially and erode secularism i.e. going against EU values.
