Most do but according to officials bi-directional trams would allow for better usage on tracks under construction or while being upgraded. I think new tram lines in Warsaw at least at the beginning may not have all the loops anyway ( as they are being extended further into suburbs year after year).

Warsaw's metro second line :

2. I widok w górę, na "city". Szkoda, że tę dziurę zamurują


3. Szanowna wycieczka Było aż 45 osób. Okazało się, że ludzi z kamerami strasznie ciężko opanować, wszędzie chcą wejść! Po prawej montażzbrojenia łożyska tarczy. Było grubo po północy, ale trzech panów pracowało.


4. Głowica skrawająca Anny widziana już z wejścia w łącznik


5. I już w łączniku. Mała ciekawostka


6. I kolejna. Sam tunel byłby rajem dla skejterów, niezłe akrobacje można kręcić


7. I końcówka łącznika w szybie na pl. Defilad. Na jego dnie trwa rozbiórka łożysk po tarczy


8. Dno szybu przypomina pobojowsko - pokruszone resztki tubingów, sterczące zbrojenia itd.


Fotorelacja wstawiona automatycznie.

Construction of the 2nd metro line - first track installed !





First rails have been installed on the 2nd metro line - the first section is 350 metres long and in the near future will serve as an underground connection between the 1st and the 2nd metro lines.

Is a 3rd subway line realistic for Warsaw in the next 15 years? Yes or why not?
Thanks.

The third subway line for Warsaw is already in the planning stage but ideally the second line must be finished first for it to link up with the third line

Metro construction - current situation (blue dotted lines - tunels still to be constructed)

Wow I am amazed at the rate of progress. Already the tunnels are done at the western and eastern ends of the metro second line I am sure the tunnels in the central section of the line will come along nicely soon

What for? I think normal buses work much better for a city like Warsaw, not very dense but with many developments sprawling in former rural areas far from the city center. We already have rather extensive bus & tram network and it works quite fine, there's no guarantee that enough people would switch to metro even if we somehow have the money to build it.

It's only my opinion, Warsaw has almost 2.000.000 inhabitants....

This isn’t London or New York. Fast urban trains, trams and buses do a great job.

In reality it's probably closer to 3 milion but still 6 lines are hard to imagine.

Not sure why some people on here are against subway systems. Planning for the future is important. London's subway system first opened in 1863, when the population was just over 3 million people. Besides, buses pollute the environment. And I have never seen a street car (tram) fit more people than a subway train.

Well, not six lines but three. Work is done for tendering of the next stations of line 2 further east and west. Also eastern part of planned line 3 to Goclawek seems to be important. But as what I can see there is no plan to have two branches (Tarchomin/Goclawek) but to have separate lines.

Besides that Warsaw has an urban-rail sysem with potentials.

Kind regards

3 lines are optimum.
We have SKM, WKD, KM trains and a big tram network. All needs to be upgrated & developed.
