It's only promotional visualisations. Warszawa Stadion station is good to be background - that's all. ;]

PESA Dart will be constructed for 160km/h. That is maybe high speed by Polish standards, but basically standard speed for long distance trains in Western European countries.
If it were up to me I would first renovate and upgrade all major lines to at least 160 km/h and only buy new trains with that top speed when the renovations on these lines come to an end. Until then the existing train sets (as crappy as they are, but many of them can reach 160km/h) would be used.

First speed, then higher comfort.

And the Pendolinos should have been bought when there are more than one high-speed trunk line. Otherwise they will be already aged trains before they can finally use their top speed when the planned Y-link Warszawa-Wroclaw/Poznan has been realised in 15-20 years. Ah I forgot, the supplier just sets the top speed of the Polish Pendolinos to just 160 km/h anyway, despite the customer request of 250 km/h top speed....

That's what Intercity ordered (vmax 160km/h) so PESA will deliver according to the requirements but keep in mind that DART will be a new platform on which PESA will construct trains for 200 and 250 km/h speeds. PESA's CEO already mentioned that the company's intention is to sell DARTs abroad, chiefly in western Europe.

BTW Stadler's FLIRT 3s which were also ordered by Intercity (20 units) are also vmax 160 km/h.

EIB to help fund rehabilitation of Polish main line
Friday, June 06, 2014

THE European Investment Bank has granted a €268m loan to Poland's infrastructure manager, PKP PLK, to rehabilitate a 58km section of the 78km main line linking Katowice with Kraków.

The work involves replacing ballast and track, as well as the overhead catenary and upgrading the power supply system. Drainage will also be improved, noise barriers erected, and improvements will be made to reduce the impact on operations from farm animals crossing the track.

Several stations on the line will be reconstructed to improve accessibility for disabled passengers.

The work will begin this year and when it is completed at the end of 2016 passenger trains will be able to operate at 160km/h while the maximum speed for freight trains will be increased to 120km/h

Wszystkie sklepy (i inne usługi, kanajpy itd) zostały zaprojektowane wzdłuż zewnętrznych pierzei. Będą się one znajdować przy nowo powstałym deptaku, który będzie przedłużeniem Monte Cassino i prowadził będzie wprost do holu dworca.

It's one of the most popular cities at the sea in Poland.
