It wasn't mentioned yet in this thread but in April Warsaw celebrated 20th anniversary of the opening of the metro.



In year 1995 on April the 7th there were opened first 11 stations and 11.5 km of the M1 line.
After 20 years we have 2 lines, 28 stations, and 29.2 km long network.

At the begging we used to have 34 cars and 14 units from Soviet Union/Russia, now we have 450 cars and 75 units, of which 35 are Siemens Inspiro, 22 are Russian 81 Series and 18 are Alstom Metropolis.

Over its first 20 years in service Metro Warszawskie transported around 1.9 billion people and road 59.235 million km.

Photos from the opening day in 1995:

No roofs over any of the platforms at Warsaw West station?
What a wonderful plan!

That is because different "railway authority" is responsible for tracks, different for station buildings and if I am not mistaken different for platforms.... total mess...

According to the Polish language wikipedia, each end of Line 2 of the Warsaw Metro is due to have a three station extension open in 2019. Are these under construction now?

Infuriatingly enough nothing is being constructed.
Such a stupid waste of time not to be tunneling now.

No wonder that it has taken this long (since the mid 90s) just to have completed one metro line and a third of one.
Truly snail pace.

There's no snail's pace here at all, the tender is out and a winning bid for the next leg of the 2nd line will be announced shortly. Are you joking, the first leg was built in record time for most such endeavours in the world. Toronto is taking 8 years to build it's Spadina line extension and in very easy terrain. Stop putting down Poland and exaggerating the negative, it's misleading and dishionest. And don't forget the previous government under Kaczynski was completely incompetent and did nothing for infrastructure investment but talk talk talk. The new government had a lot of arrears to make up for and they are doing an amazing job. Just check the Polish thread.

Development of public transport in Warsaw under the mayor Lech Kaczyński 2002-2005

Lech Kaczyński became mayor of Warsaw in December 2002 when he was elected in a landslide victory (70,5 % of all votes). He initiated construction of the Copernicus Scientific Centre, Museum of the History of the Polish Jews or modernisation of the Royal Route. He built, in record time, Museum of the Warsaw Uprising which the heros of Warsaw had been waiting for so many years. He kept low tariffs for the public transportation, fought corruption and excessive bureaucracy.

This thread is dedicated to public transport in Warsaw so I have to say that Lech Kaczyński as mayor of Warsaw:

a. on 3rd October 2005 inaugurated Szybka Kolej Miejska (Municipal Fast Railway system):



b. continued construction of the first metro line and on 8th April 2005 opened Plac Wilsona station considered one of the best in the world:



c. built a tram line that connected two important districts of Warsaw, Bemowo and Bielany (inaugurated on 21st December 2005):



Lech Kaczyński has been mayor of Warsaw for just 3 years, until December 2005, when he was elected president of Poland. He did a fantastic work for Warsaw especially if you take into consideration that when he was elected mayor Poland was not a member of the European Union and didn't have access to the EU funds.

How could he not continue construction of the M1 Plac Wilsona station?

Opened in 2005 part of the Powstańców Śląskich tram route was co-funded of the EU funds.

Inauguration of the SKM service was indeed great initiative of his administration.

ok you're getting very political, but to clarify Lech Kaczynski only brought construction of the Uprising Museum to completion, the Polish Jews Museum and Copernicus were all PO initiatives under Hanna Gronkiewicz-Waltz, who also oversaw completion of the last 5 stops of the first metro line, started and finished the second line first segment, built the north bridge and added and or modernizing about 40 km of tram line as well as expanding massively the SKM line. There are many other projects that she oversaw such as rail line to airport, new filtration plant but we can discuss those projects on the relevant Polish threads.

Indeed. Mod note: unless there is a specific reason for bringing politics into the thread I would appreciate it to remain apolitical if the members would prefer it that way.

There is ZERO tunneling work going on now and not even an inch of earth has been dug up since the first stretch of line 2 opened back in February!
I don't understand why you're taking an apologist's stance and swimming in an Egyptian river (in da Nile).

If I was a resident of Bemowo or Targówek (needing to use the metro more extensively) I would be pissed off about this very long marathon 'tea break'.
The work for further tunneling should have been put out to tender at least a year ago and there is absolutely NO excuse for it not to have taken place much earlier.

Of course we prefer this thread to be apolitical, well I certainly do anyway.
I'm so sick and tired of people name-dropping politicians such as Sraczynski or whatever his stupid name is.
In any case politicians are mainly parasites and do not deserve any mention on this thread.

We should be discussing the development, or lack therof, of the Warsaw public transport system and (where appropriate) be blaming those in authority generally.

We have built 30 km of metro in 30 years. That's nothing to boast at. And it goes with the same pace since the beginning, despite end of communism, EU funds and all that:

1983-1995: 11 km in 12 years.
1995-2008: 12 km in 13 years.
2008-2015: 6 km in 7 years.

Minsk is building its metro in the same rate, except they have 38 km by now (construction started in 1977).

I agree it could have gone faster, but there were problems that Poland faces or faced that slowed everything, namely endless protests that an archaic legal and tendering system allowed to slow development, this has now been thankfully reformed. Besides this you all know what condition Poland and Warsaw was in post war and post communism, much needed to be done and matching funds or a portion of funds needed to be found. I wish Warsaw had 60 km of metro now, but it was not economically or politically feasible. That's the reality. However, the next section's tender is almost done, so let's be positive and let's hope remainder of Tarchomin tram is built soon and Wilanow line started.
