The first metro train crossed the Vistula river and reached Dworzec Wileński station !

Yesterday - the 11th of September 2014 - was a historic day for the development of the Warsaw metro: the first train ever crossed Vistula in a tunnel under the river and reached the last of the new stations Dworzec Wileński ! It is obvious now that the authorities of Warsaw do their best in order to open the central part of the M2 before the local elections that will be held on Sunday the 16th of November.

Do you have to bring politics into this. Of course they would want to get this line finished asap to serve the people of the city, it's already delayed. Are politicians any different anywhere in the world?

We've waited so many years that a few more weeks won't make a difference.

The platforms look odd without any seats but I should think that there will be some

Definitely, but in the M1 stations there are very few seats. Metro is for fast moving, not for waiting.

Tomorrow (Sunday 8th September 2014) at 15 h 00 the first Inspiro train will do a test run of M2 from Rondo Daszyńskiego all the way to the end of the line at Dworzec Wileński. The current mayor of Warsaw Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz will attend the test run

http://warszawa.gazeta.pl/warszawa/1...nia_metra.html

Obviously work is now complete on finishing the track at CNK metro station (or else there wouldn't be a test run of the entire line would there? ) All that remains to be finished at CNK metro station is the upper ceiling, the implementation of the concrete lift shaft and escalators finishing off ready for technical acceptance

Only two days left until M2 is handed over and classed as ready for train tests/licences prepared for it's use

Below is the link to the video of the test run (although the video only shows the stations and not the tunnels? and CNK station isn't shown at all)

Finally someone prepared a comprehensive map showing just how expansive and extensive Warsaw's urban transportation infrastructure is. Bravo!

Yea! This is the best one so far. Nice marriage between rail and metro/tram network.

exactly, when I tell people I can get practically anywhere easily in Warsaw on transit, they laugh and say it's not like Berlin and London. Sorry, to disappoint naysayers, but the city has a system that would be the envy of any city in North America except NYC, but it could use more subway that's for sure.
