The first section of line 2 will open for the Euro2012 or later? It will be very good if it opens in time for the Euro Championship

Its opening is planned for years 2013-2014. But it's not a problem since we have there suburban rail (which will be upgraded) and trams.

Now that the last stations of Line 1 opened today does anybody know when construction is going to begin on the missing two stations on this line -
Plac Konstytucji and Muranów, until these two stations are built than Line 1
isn't really fully complete. I know that next year is when the stations are supposed to be built. These stations are needed to fill a large gap in the sections of Warsaw's city centre which are not covered by Line 1 of the Warsaw Metro

Warsaw finishes first subway line after 25 years
25 October 2008

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - The Polish capital celebrated the completion of its first subway line on Saturday, 25 years after the project was launched.

Though the north-south metro line first started running in 1995, its completion was long delayed by financial and other problems.

On Saturday, three northern stations were finally put into operation, extending the subway's course to 14 miles (23 kilometers). To celebrate, Warsaw offered free travel on the 23-stop line Saturday afternoon.

Construction began in 1983 under communism but was slowed in part by a lack of equipment. Seven years later communism fell and money was short as the country changed to a market economy.

City authorities plan to build a second, east-west line, but there is no timetable for how long that might take.

Only 25 years? I have heard that the project was first proposed in 1903 - that's 105 years ago.

Yes, first projects are over 100 years old, but they have hardly anything to do with construction of the first line, which has begun in April 1983.

The newest stations are beautiful, but my favourite one is Ratusz Arsenał. Warsaw teachs me use public transport and lets give up a car when I lived there a month.

How long is the tender process for the second line of the Warsaw Metro
going to take - a year? It is desperately needed to alleviate the
severe traffic congestion in Praga (I noticed that Praga Centrum metro
station doesn't feature in the list of stations for line 2 )
I know that Warsaw city hall is shocked that the cost of constructing the second line is double what they expected but the tender process needs to be
hurried along so that construction could start in 2009 rather than 2010

Theres no need to hurry. What means 1 year or even 3 in comparison to planning of the metro line which will be in use for decades if not for centuries?? Contractors need a lot of time to prepare adequately to the tender specifications. It means lower costs for the city, and no waste of time, since better prepared contractors result in less delays and less surprises.

I heard that there are only five firm's left in the fight to build 186 new trams for Warsaw and that Warsaw will be putting more of those electionic signs used on Aleje Jerozolimskie.
