Newag to supply new Warsaw commuter trains
27 AUG, 2014



Warsaw’s commuter rail operator (WKD) has ordered six new trains from Newag to increase capacity on morning peak services.

The first of the new sets, which have been purchased under the Swiss-Polish Programme of Cooperation, will be delivered around 18 months from contract signing. Newag expects to complete the order within two years.

The six-car electric vehicles will be 60 metres long with a seating capacity of 164 and a maximum speed of 80 km/h.

Around 124.7 million zł is being invested altogether in new rolling stock, station enhancements and the installation of a new passenger information system.

Warsaw metro Line 2 nears completion

THE consortium building the second metro line in Warsaw has confirmed that construction is now 95% complete and works are on course for the handover of the line to Warsaw Metro next month.

The AGP Poland consortium, which comprises Astaldi, Italy; Gulermak, Turkey; and PBDIM, Poland, says that all construction works have been completed with the exception of trackwork at one of the seven stations.

The 6.5km east-west line will link Dworzec Wileński with Rondo Daszyńskiego and runs completely underground for its entire length. Services will be operated by a fleet of 20 six-car Inspiro metro trains being supplied by a consortium of Siemens and Newag.

with the exception of trackwork at one of the seven stations. Let's hope the track is there before they start testing the entire line with the Inspiro trains!

I wonder which station this refers to? - it's alright I found out the answer myself from this article: 70 m of track is missing from the station Centrum Nauki Kopernik but workers are working in three shifts to rectify this

http://tvnwarszawa.tvn24.pl/raport,m...szawe,125.html

Article says first trains may run on the line as soon as between 20 and 30th September 2014 - but this depends on how long it takes
the licences to be issued from the fire service and inspectors to sign whole line off as safe for passenger use

November is the most optimistic term of the opening of the M2.

I agree. Also that is when the municipal elections in Warsaw take place

It would have been good if the article had made this clear as it gives the false impression that 95% of work is completed along the WHOLE of Line 2.
Judging from the latest photos on the Warsaw Metro website there is still a long way to go towards completion from Świętokrzyska station to Dworzec Wileński station (Part 2)

Metro Line 2 in Warsaw was cut into 3 parts. Now the Part 1 is being finished - the CENTRAL part of the Line 2. Later they will do the rest - east and west legs (each one will have several more stations).

Sorry, I see what you mean. I realise Part 1 is between Rondo Daszyńskiego and Dworzec Wileński

20. Wycieczka dodana dla oddania skali :p

I love the lights in the ceiling above the platforms. Are the concrete pillars going to be painted?

I wonder if work is as advanced at Centrum Nauki Kopernik? This is the station which needs the most work if Line 2 (Part 1) is to be finished by 30th September
