^ That looks really cool! The renovation of Warszawa Centralna also looks promising but is anything going to happen to the roof? It looks quite dark and heavy...

The "thing" is that these dumbs painted it. It was white but they wanted it to be cozy. Everybody complains about it.

It's an improvement. It doesn't feel as much like a relic of the occupation as it used to, but there is not much of a Wow Factor. In my my opinion, it's gone from shabby to mediocre, which is a welcome improvement. In general, I prefer the money be spent on functionality, rather than on cosmetics. For the city of Warsaw, I think expansion of the Metro should be the main priority.

PKP made a lot of unnecessary changes on Centralny like this blobby mezzanine that doesn't really fit anything.

Seems the dear president of Warsaw takes no care at all to congestion. I guess for the moment being it would be better to make 3 lines and then care about smth else. About Warszawa Centralna, true. Krakow has even worse situation-rails being all at grade. Guess that is the reason the PKP received little money. The big cheese is the big idiot of the company. They'd rather, dunno, connect Lublin, Zamosc and Rawa Ruska or make the extension of Ostroleka line...

It looks as dark in that station as a moonless night!!!
Even when its sunny outside.

This must be a contender for the award of
'World's Worst ever station redesign'.
Quite simply awful, shockingly awful.

I don't find it that awful, but that could have been done a great deal better. IMO however they took those b****ingly slow screens that show changes as though as if it were the style of a 95 y.o. senior. It was better. I guess they were so obsessed with electronics they made it too bad. Btw, the same screens in Krakow! Overall, the darkness is somehow compensated by artificial light, so they will spend more money on electricity after reconstruction . Few will like it, but I guess TVP will show only the positive reviews. However, there are some even worse reconstructions.

You certainly would if you saw it in real life, as I did a couple of days ago.

Yeah, who needs daylight, just have the lights switched on 24/7. Great!

Its shown how wonderfully functional it is by directly connecting Biedronka (Polish supermarket equivalent of Poundland) with McDonalds. Superb!
