Interesting trams. It would be nice to see more Easter European tram systems here, as it is often hard to find photos of and information about them.

Superb tram.
Let us hope that its access will be forbidden for passengers with bicycles as they don't pay for their bicycles (vs. half-fare for children) and usually block the access to passengers with baby buggies

wtf?
in Poland u can't take u bike on bus or tram, and that is not good, as long as there is space for regular passangers. i don't get ur point. in many cities around the world there is this fabulous posibility to ride a bike then go by bus or tram and after this go to ur place by bike again. it's a samrt combination of urban trafic. i admire the open-minded Berlin where it's allowed to take bike on trams (on subways and S-Bahns of course too) for free or that many north-american cities with special bike-racks in front of their buses or trams/lrt's that allow u inside with bicycle.
i used to take my bike on trams and on buses this summer in Salt Lake CIty going to downtown or to the swimming pool or just going in a far place outside. it was so great 'coz i could save some time and my muscles with this possibility.
now, as i'm back home in Poland, i wish i could some day get in with my bike on a urban bus and go just to the another end of the town and enjoy my tour without going through the city center avoiding cars with some insane drivers.

Postępowanie, ogłoszone 16 października, odbywa się według procedury dialogu konkurencyjnego (Art. 60a - 60e Ustawy Prawo Zamówień Publicznych). Spośród zgłoszonych dzisiaj wykonawców do dalszego postępowania dopuszczonych zostanie pięć podmiotów, mających największe doświadczenie w tego typu inwestycjach. Z nimi prowadzony będzie dialog konkurencyjny, który doprowadzić ma do takiego opisania przedmiotu zamówienia, które będzie odpowiadać potrzebom zamawiającego i możliwościom wykonawców. Dokumentacja sporządzona w wyniku dialogu, stanowić będzie podstawę ostatniego etapu procedury – składania ofert.

Spośród podmiotów, które złożą wtedy oferty, na podstawie kryteriów oceny podanych w ogłoszeniu, wyłoniony zostanie wykonawca, do którego należeć będzie realizacja robót budowlano - montażowych wraz z wykonaniem projektów budowlanych i wykonawczych, zgodnych z zatwierdzonym Wielobranżowym Projektem Koncepcyjnym.

Planowane zakończenie procedury wyłonienia wykonawcy i podpisanie z nim umowy planowane jest na przełom I i II kwartału 2008 r.

Przedmiotem zamówienia jest zaprojektowanie i wybudowanie „pod klucz” centralnego odcinka II linii metra w Warszawie od Ronda Daszyńskiego do Dworca Wileńskiego wraz z łącznikiem między I i II linią metra, zgodnie z Wielobranżowym Projektem Koncepcyjnym oraz Programem Funkcjonalno Użytkowym, którego ostateczne brzmienie zostanie ustalone w wyniku przeprowadzonego dialogu konkurencyjnego.

Zaprojektowanie i wybudowanie „pod klucz” centralnego odcinka II linii metra winno zostać zrealizowane w okresie nie przekraczającym 45 miesięcy od daty zawarcia umowy.

Podstawowe informacje dotyczące przedmiotu zamówienia:
• Całkowita długość odcinka centralnego - około 6300 m, w tym:
- 6 odcinków szlakowych o łącznej długości 4200 m
- 7 stacji o łącznej długości z torami odstawczymi oraz pozostałymi
obiektami (komory rozjazdów, komory do zawracania, wentylatornie itd.)
około - 2100 m
• Tunel łącznikowy pomiędzy I i II linią o długości około 500 m
• Połączenie systemów z centralną dyspozytornią na STP Kabaty
• Integracja systemów z I linią metra.

Centralny odcinek II linii metra łączyć będzie Wolę z Pragą Północ. Zostanie na nim zbudowanych 7 stacji: Rondo Daszyńskiego, Rondo ONZ, Świętokrzyska, Nowy Świat, Powiśle, Stadion i Dworzec Wileński.
The last news is, the Chinese are out of the tender, because their Polish representative haven't prepared all necessary documents.

An early concept for the entrances of the second line:

Passenger information system on the renovated tram route is finally working, but not without fails...



lately finished subway station Slodowiec is waiting for first passengers
http://www.zw.com.pl/galeria/238666.html












Architect Stefan Choldzynski in cooperation with grapchic artist Wojciech Fangor http://www.culture.pl/en/culture/art..._malarstwo_csw designed 7 stations of the second subway line.
Here are main facts from the article in Polish http://www.zw.com.pl/galeria/8,238652.html :
On the walls of the stations are planned giantic screens (4 m * 120 m) on which we'll see graphics of Fangor as a background. Graphics will coresponde with the names of the stations. Those screens will be used as an exhibition spaces for the modern art. New stations will be actually modern art galeries. In the meantime on the screens we'll see views from the cameras installed on the surface, what is supposed to give us feeling, that we're in fact on the ground level. There is still disargreement between the designer and the subway operator if advertisements should occupy 5 or 20 % of the screens.
new visualizations

Pics of newly-opened station at Slodowiec are great - can't wait until June when Line 1 goes further north!!

The pictures of the newly-opened metro station at Slodowiec are great , can't wait until June when the stations at Stare Bielany and Wawrsyrszew are finally open, but I think that Line 1 needs to be extended well beyond Mlociny to as far as Lomianki (even though it's outside the Warsaw city boundary) - what does everything think?

I know that Lomianki is outside of Warsaw's city boundary and construction would involve digging up the Kampinoski National Park but it would connect Warsaw much better since Lomianki doesn't have a train station or direct rail link to Warsaw

I'd not call it the most beautiful (that's purely subjective), however, it's certainly one of the nicest stations I've seen!

The Slodowiec station is now open



image hosted on flickr

The next 3 stations, the last of the 1st metro line are on the finish and will be opened in September.











We will also know soon if the 2nd line will be built now or later due to the high prices given by the constructors.

No, besides depot. Second planned line also will be completely underground.

The photos the new metro stations at Stare Bielany and Wawrzyszew are fantastic, but why do the citizens of Warsaw have to wait until September to use them? Is it because the government wants to wait until Mlociny is finished in August and open them all at the same time? It's ridiculous having two metro stations which are almost ready for use but will not be used for another two months (if Mlociny is finished by the promised deadline of August that is). Warsaw really will have something to celebrate when Mlociny opens though as it's only metro line can be said to be fully complete by the end of the year. Mind the real hard work comes with connecting Mlociny metro station to the tram link to Bialoleka and Warsaw's north-eastern suburbs (not due to be started until next year apparently). Would be great to see construction pics of the new bridge which is to be built over the Wisla (Vistula) river to accommodate the new tram line.
What does everyone think of my suggestion to extend Line 1 even further though to Lomianki?

Trains have to turn back somewhere, so opening of SB and Wawrzyszew stastions before Młociny is impossible.

Mlociny metro station's delayed opening

I've got bad news guys - Mlociny metro station's opening has been delayed until November rather than August/September, does anything ever get finished on time in Poland?
Has anyone got any pics of the construction site of Mlociny metro station - if so I would like to see them so we can see how far the work is progressing.
If it takes them this long to finish Line 1 how long is Line 2 going to take?
But hey I'm sure that Warsaw's metro will age better than London's crumbling network which was built decades ago
