very impressive that warsaw tram system + metro actually gives city a very impressive transit system and of course there are also buses. but 120 km of trams most in dedicated r.o.w is not bad at all.

Bids in for Warsaw metro line two extension

Five companies have bid for the contract to extend Warsaw’s second metro line west and four to the east.

Warsaw Metro on Monday opened bids in the tender for the construction of six more stations.

The lowest offer on the western section is PLN 1.148 billion (about EUR 260 million), and on the eastern part PLN 1.066 billion.

The city has allocated PLN 3.174 billion for the six new stations.

The lowest bid from among five bidders for the extension from Rondo Daszynskiego in the west was made by Turkish consortium Gulermak – of PLN 1.15 billion - and the highest was by a cbconsortium led by Metrostav Poland SA of PLN 1.8 billion.

In the east the lowest bid was submitted by the Italian consortium Astaldi SpA, of PLN 1.066 billion and the highest PLN 1.833 billion by Budimex SA.

The plan is to build 3.4 km of new westbound track from Rondo Daszynskiego, with the planned stops including "Wolska," "Moczydło,""Księcia Janusza."

To the east about 3.12 km of new track will be built.

According to the tender documents the construction of the new stations should take no longer than 38 months and could be completed by 2019.

Warsaw City announced the tender in October 2014. (jh/rk)

When will construction begin on extending M2 to the west and to the east?
It would have made sense to start the construction after opening of the central section

Yes, a stupid inexcusable waste of time to cease tunneling work when the central section of the line had been completed.
All they had to do was apply for a EU bridging loan to avoid this 2 or 3 year 'tea break'.
Construction may resume in a year or two.

The prime minister of Poland and the mayor of Warsaw have said on a press conference that Warsaw will present projects at the EU to receive about 4.1 billion zloty (1.025 billion euro) funds for transport projects in the city, including about 3.6 billion zloty for the further extension of the second line of the Warsaw metro.



For the 3+3 (orange) Warsaw could get 1.945 billion zloty for construction, extra infrastructure, and new trains, which would be 68% of the total investment.

For the 3+2 (red) Warsaw could get 1.625 billion zloty for construction and new trains, which would be 63% of the total investment.

In Poland we have the electoral campaign now and today's conference is a pure propaganda of the ruling PO (the Civic Platform) which is trying at all costs (and in vain) to stay in power. Since 2009 only 7 new metro stations have been built and they promise to open 11 more in just 5 years (by 2020) - it is completely unrealistic and simply ridiculous.

At least under their rule something was built, contrary to others . But anyway this shouldn't be a thread for politics.

I wish the construction of new metro stations was faster and PO politicians were more responsible. Anyway unfortunately this schedule is much more realistic:

I beg to differ, responsibility starts with not making promises politicians can't keep. PO has watched the public purse very conscientiously while the new PIS president is already talking Syriza style promises that got him elected and now he can't keep like lowering the retirement age to 60 in a country with a demographic crisis. My point is when all this money is squandered they will not be able to build any more transit in Poland whatsoever.

That's right. This shouldn't be a thread about politics because politicians are
parasitical vermin, worse even than rats. Greedy, inept but skilled at cheating and lying to the Polish public.

It is disappointing that no tunnelling work has been going on for almost a year now and all we get is
optimistic PR announcements about progress that supposedly 'will be made'.

Few words about first two months of Solaris Urbino 12 electric and other low emission buses in Warsaw (by myself, in Polish).



Website: Wikinews
Author: Muri
Title: Elektryczne Solarisy od dwóch miesięcy jeżdżą po Warszawie (fotoreportaż)
Date: 20:08, 2015‎-08-31
URL: https://pl.wikinews.org/wiki/Elektry...porta%C5%BC%29

Quote:
30 sierpnia 2015 minęły dwa miesiące od kiedy po warszawskich ulicach jeżdżą autobusy elektryczne. Dziesięć bezemisyjnych pojazdów, które zakupiono w grudniu 2014, skierowano ostatniego dnia czerwca do obsługi reprezentacyjnego Traktu Królewskiego.

[...]



[...]

Kierowca pojazdu zapytany podczas postoju na pętli o wrażenia z jazdy odpowiedział, że producent stworzył pojazd na naprawdę wysokim poziomie. Mimo że autobus jest napędzany silnikiem elektrycznym oraz ma większą masę od wersji spalinowej za sprawą zamontowanych baterii, kierowanie nim niemalże nie różni się od jazdy autobusem spalinowym. Szofer za duży plus elektrobusu Solarisa uznał również jego bezpieczeństwo, a dokładnie to, że pojazd posiada tylną szybę oraz jest w niej zainstalowana kamera, podczas gdy np. w testowanych chińskich autobusach BYD K-9 cały tył przestrzeni pasażerskiej był zabudowany bateriami i kierowca musiał polegać wyłącznie na lusterkach zamontowanych z przodu. Jedyne dostrzeżone mankamenty najnowszych warszawskich autobusów to ich większa od standardowego Urbino wysokość za sprawą aparatury zamontowanej na dachu, co niekiedy przysparza problemów z warszawską infrastrukturą, a także zasięg. Pojemność baterii w połączeniu z wielkomiejskim stylem jazdy, a także z włączoną klimatyzacją niezbędną w wakacyjne gorące dni, nie pozwala na przejechanie całego dnia służby na jednym ładowaniu.

Above.
Very boring and generic design of those buses that you would see driving around in any place, Azerbaijan and Estonia included. Its just an engineer's solution to a design which explains the blandness.

The design of the new buses should be based on those vintage Polish buses from the 1950s which had bundles of character and charm.

Yes, an example of a vintage Jelcz used for travel in the Warsaw area.



And an example of how part of it could be reconfigured for local travel in the Warsaw area.



Number and destination of bus would be presented digitally via LED.
