There was an article in the newspaper here about the new warsaw metro. Apparently the tunnels aren't big enough for the trains to fit through. I laughed so hard when I read it.

Indeed. lol. They were building a brandnew railway.. And they had built expensive and modern train tunnels. They thought about everything. And when it was ready, the train was coming. And the machinist stopped, cause the train coudn't pass the tunnels : I couldn't stop laughing. actually a bit pathetic.. and it was really expensive and everything is built for nothing.. but still.. Everyone can make a mistake in his job.. but this was a real big one...

Apparently when the tunnels were constructed, they were big enough. But when they filled in the concrete to make the floor level so rails could be constructed, they didn't take into account the space between the rails and the floor. So now the tunnels are too small for the trains.

I wonder who'll be fired for being so stupid?

Sorry I don't get it. What does this have to do with Warsaw metro system ?

You have read something somewhere and decided to stick it here. Not very bright on your part.

What you are talking about is a tunnel for commuter railways which after upgrade may be too small for a particular double decker train (smaller safety margins). The trains are not yet operational and the tunnel authority is still testing possible scenarios.

It's totally off-topic and shouldn't be here.

The title of the thread says "Warsaw - Subway, trams, etc". So IMO, commuter rail fits here quite well.

Maybe but considering his response was to an ongoing metro discussion and he clearly stated "metro" I wanted to set the record straight.

2 week old pictures from the metro site.

Młociny Station is still under construction:




















2 other stations waiting finished for the 3rd one:





Information boards suggest, that they're taking under consideration opening of a shuttle service on those 2 stations before opening of the 3rd one.

I heard that China is interested in building the second metro line (6 KM) before the Euro 2012. Is there any news about who will be chosen to build the 6 km line??
