Thats what I understood from the video. It gave the impression that at the very end of Feb
the electrical/lighting work, railway tracks and tunnel walls will all be completely done. So hopefully come March we shall see some actual painting and cosmetic work going on to make it all look more like a station rather than just the concrete shell which it is now and has been for years, followed by signage being added in end of April/start of May. I look forward to seeing pictures of the station coming to life soon

Two trains have collided in southern Poland, leaving six people dead, and 50 hurt.

The accident occurred on Saturday evening on the Warsaw-Krakow mainline at the small town of Szczekociny , two express trains, one of which was on the wrong track, collided head-on.

Few details: the accident occured on line which is a branch of Central Main Line connecting Warsaw Metropolitan Area and Upper Silesia. This branch enables trains to turn towards Cracow and south-eastern Poland.

For the next 24 h main train connection from Warsaw do Cracow will be closed for traffic. Already enabled detour adds 2,5 h travel time. (which nearly doubles usual travel time)

Trains can take 26 thousand people per hour from this station. Stadium is in city centre so there is developed bus and tram transport. There is also metro station U/C.
