Plans to increase capacity at Warszawa Zachodnia unveiled
18 Feb 2017





POLAND: Infrastructure manager PKP PLK has unveiled the design concept for an extensive modernisation of Warszawa Zachodnia station planned for 2019-21. The designs have been developed by Idom and Glebowski Studio, and aim to improve capacity to handle a predicted doubling of usage to 60 000 passengers per day by 2030.

The track layout is to be revised to increase line capacity and reduce conflicting movements. An additional platform will be provided, a new overall roof built, and a new underpass provided to improve passenger flows. There would be an integrated rail, tram, bus and coach interchange, and a tram tunnel is to be built as part of new line from Wilanów

100th train belonging to Impuls family produced by Newag and delivered to KM (Koleje Malopolskie). KM currently owns and operates 18 such trains.

Brali w niej udział m.in Marszałek Jacek Krupa, prezes Kolei Małopolskich Ryszard Rębilas i prezes Newagu Zbigniew Konieczko.



W ten symboliczny sposób został zakończony unijny projekt, w ramach którego województwo kupiło 13 nowoczesnych pojazdów.
Małopolskie Impulsy zostały wyprodukowane w niespełna rok i kosztowały ponad 300 mln zł. Województwo kupiło w sumie 5 pociągów pięcioczłonowych oraz 8 czteroczłonowych. Pierwsze z nich zaczęły wozić pasażerów w grudniu ubiegłego roku (6 pojazdów: cztery składy 5-członowych Impulsów 45WE oraz dwie sztuki 4-członowych EZT Impuls 31WE). Kolejne dotarły do Małopolski i wyjechały na linie Szybkiej Kolei Aglomeracyjnej w lutym 2017 r.



Nowy tabor spełnia rygorystyczne normy europejskie TSI (PRM, TSI NOI, TSI LOK&PAS, TSI SRT i TSI CCS), dzięki czemu znacznie poprawił się komfort podróży małopolskich pasażerów, przede wszystkim osób niepełnosprawnych i o ograniczonej mobilności. Pasażerowie podróżują w cichych, klimatyzowanych wnętrzach, wyposażonych w ergonomiczne fotele, internet i gniazdka elektryczne. W pojazdach został zastosowany nowoczesny system wizualnej i dźwiękowej informacji pasażerskiej, monitoring oraz system zliczania pasażerów. Każdy czteroczłonowy Impuls pomieści 200 pasażerów na miejscach siedzących (w tym 16 uchylnych), a pięcioczłonowy - 250 pasażerów na miejscach siedzących (w tym 20 uchylnych).

Impulsy to pojazdy ekonomiczne i bezpieczne — cechują się niskim zużyciem energii elektrycznej, gdyż podczas hamowania pociąg oddaje energię do sieci trakcyjnej. Pojazdy spełniają również rygorystyczne europejskie normy zderzeniowe i wytrzymałościowe (zgodnie z EN 15227 C1 oraz PII wg EN 12663). Impulsy podróżują z prędkością eksploatacyjną 160 km/h.

KMŁ - It's the most popular abbreviation of Koleje Małopolskie. KM is usually understood as Koleje Mazowieckie.

Among all the positive development on Polish railway network, some negative issues have to be addressed in the first place, one of them is safety. Almost every day something tragic happens at the level crossings. A long as there will be negligence in prosecution and punishment of completely careless drivers, scenes like that will repeat over and over...

Not only we have problems with safety on level crossings.

The country with best-developed railway network in this part of Europe has them too:



I cannot see those English subtitles they wrote about in the video title (they have them in other videos, but not here), so I don't understand much, but from what I understand, there was 40% increase of accidents on level crossings in 2016 in Czech Republic. And 45 persons were dead (?).

Which does not mean we do not have this problem too.

I think, one of the main reasons why it is so are too long waiting times after closing the barriers and before the train passes the crossing. Which makes drivers impatient. If you know you will wait many minutes at the crossing, you try to avoid it for any price. Unfortunately, this price sometimes turns out to be really high... If the waiting time wasn't so long, there would be less so impatient drivers.

Maybe also not everyone understands that while on manually operated crossings, especially within railway stations (they usually have full barriers), the waiting times are actually long, they are much shorter on automatic crossings (usually with half-barriers).

Another problem is too small number of collision-free crossings, with a bridge or a tunnel. There is really many level crossings in Poland, often on important roads.

Regardless of all circumstances, there is a question of attitude. Firstly, the driver has a red light before even the barriers even start going down, so many ignore that. Wait a moment, is the running red lights allowed anywhere in general? The next phase is the bypassing of barriers. To me it's always a criminal offense, an inexcusable behaviour. Unfortunately the co-existing problem is a lack of surveillance. The cameras, if present, just register and nobody watches in real time, nobody reacts. In fact there aren't even true sanctions in use. If the habit is bad, it should be corrected by force until the attitude changes, there is no other way. The only prevention in Poland is forcing... trains to slow their speed while approaching the crossings, often to a very significant degree. That happens also on crossings with extraordinary visibility, just because an idiot collided there with train some weeks or months before. Not very logical to me.

And if neighbours have (to lesser extent) the same problem... is it really a kind of consolation, does it make the situation "at home" any better? I don't think so.

Of course you are right, but it does not mean that there is no fault of what I wrote about.

The first thing + the second thing results in deadly accidents.

Running red lights by pedestrians on zebra crossings (NOT level crossings, to be clear) is allowed in many countries But by cars - rather not, except for turning right on intersections.

Anyway, providing safety by means of punishments is not the most effective way.

Right, by all means the education is also important. So maybe the classical "carrot and stick" approach would be the most optimal one.

Newag signs Łódź EMU contract
28 Feb 2017



POLAND: Łódź suburban operator Łódzka Kolej Aglomeracyjna signed a contract on February 28 for Newag to supply 14 three-car Impuls 2 electric multiple-units for 236·8m złoty, and maintain them for 12 years at a cost of 1·476 złoty/train-km.

Stadler supplied ŁKA’s current fleet of 20 two-car Flirt3 EMUs and had originally been named preferred bidder for the latest contract in September 2016, with an offer of 260·9m złoty and 2·214 złoty/km, which beat rival proposals from Newag and Pesa. Newag successfully challenged this decision, and an initial appeal by Stadler was rejected. Although the Swiss company has a second appeal underway, this does not prevent the contract from being signed
