It's not official, so what do You expect?

Official tracker for SKM Trójmiasto isn't much better:

Yes, almost anything is better than a urine-stained blank wall.

It has an infantile style that's suitable for kids and young teenagers to gawp at.

It has standard gauge 1,435 mm. It's suburban LRT actually.

BTW WKD gained Swiss Funds for its redevelopment:

http://www.wkd-sppw.eu/index.php?con...s&id=28&lng=en

Quote:
Contract Agreement for the delivery of 6 electric traction units has been signed

On 26 August 2014 at the Marshal Office of the Mazovian Voivodeship, the Company’s Executive Officers and the representatives of NEWAG Company signed the Rolling Stock Delivery Contract Agreement in the presence of Marshal Adam Struzik. There are good news for the passengers of the Warsaw Commuter Rail (WKD). Within the two coming years the Company, the major shareholder of which is the Regional Government of the Mazovian Voivodeship, will purchase 6 modern electric traction units co-financed within the framework of the Swiss-Polish Co-operation Programme.

The new rolling stock will ensure better quality and comfort of travel for passengers, including primarily the residents of 6 communes: Michałowice, Pruszków, Brwinów, Milanówek, Podkowa Leśna, Grodzisk Mazowiecki and two Warsaw districts – Włochy and Ochota. This will also mean better safety. Every single vehicle will be equipped with the monitoring system as well as the video surveillance system, ventilation and air conditioning of passenger cars, including the arrangement of windows and their number that allow for the natural ventilation inside the vehicle, and the passenger counting system.

A vehicle of 60 m in length will comprise 6 train cars for the total number of 164 passenger seats overall. Every single vehicle will have the space capacity for four seats for passengers in wheelchairs and manually discharged ramps in the number of 4 units at both ends of the vehicle as well as the capacity for the safe transport of at least 8 bicycles.

Every vehicle will be equipped with the fully integrated passenger information system and exterior LED panels as well as LCD screens positioned for good visibility from any place in the interior of a vehicle.

The rolling stock is purchased and delivered within the framework of the Project titled „Development of the public transport in Warsaw metropolitan area through improvement of the WKD (Warsaw Commuter Rail) efficiency, reliability and safety”.

The tasks executed under the Project constitute the subsequent stage of the comprehensive upgrade of the WKD transport system that will provide for integration with other means of public transport in conformity with the Development Strategy for the Mazovian Voivodeship. This objective would not be successfully achieved if it were not for the capital expenditures incurred on the rolling stock that will improve attractiveness of the public transport services. In effect of the study visit and information exchange with companies operating in the transport market in Switzerland, the WKD representatives had a chance to learn about the public transport management success stories that are characteristic for the public transport systems in Switzerland.

Implementation of the Project commenced on 1st June 2012 when the Project Agreement was concluded between the Ministry for the Regional Development and the Swiss State Secretariat for Economic Affairs. The Project has been scheduled to be completed by December-end 2016.

The total cost of the investment Project amounts to PLN 124.7 million, out of which PLN 57.8 million will be contributed within the framework of the Swiss-Polish Co-operation Programme. The remaining amount will be contributed by the Company. Within the framework of the Project, the acquisition cost of the new rolling stock amounts to over PLN 98 million, out of which PLN 45.5 million will be co-financed by the Swiss funds. The remaining expenditures budgeted under the Project in progress will be incurred on the improvement of travel quality and comfort on the WKD service lines in terms of the transport infrastructure i.e., the upgrade of halts and implementation of the passenger information system and monitoring system.

The New Rolling Stock for the Warsaw Commuter Rail lines include electric units fitted for operations fed with 3000V of direct current. The passenger vehicles will travel at the maximum speed of 80km/h.

The basic criteria to be met by the new rolling stock for agglomeration transport services operated by the Warsaw Commuter Rail lines are as follows:

Improvement of traction technical features – as far as acceleration and delay of braking are concerned;

Adjustment to the existing technical back-up facilities;

High flexibility to set in motion;

Maximization of the space available for travellers.
In 2015 initial agreement has been expanded thanks to more favourable exchange rate of CHF to PLN. Info in Polish only:
