Patrząc jak zmieniło się otoczenie przed dworcem nie dziwię sie, że PKP mogło chcieć się dopasować. Oczywiście to stwierdzenie trzeba traktować z dużym przymrużeniem oka. PKP to pewnie wisi, jest to tylko zbieg okoliczności










Wnętrze tylko odświeżone, czuć jeszcze farbę


Drzwi wejściowe są nowe




Czyste przejście na perony




Nawierzchnia peronów została stara. Pomalowana jest konstrukcję zadaszenia




Różowy Karlik wpasowuje się kolorystycznie w szary dworzec. Czerwone również .

Poland to invest over EUR 5 bn in developing railway transport

Poland will invest over EUR 5 bn from the Infrastructure and Environment program 2014 – 2020 in developing railway transport, stated the Deputy Minister for Infrastructure and Development, Sławomir Żałobka. In addition, Poland will receive approx. EUR 4.14 billion under the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) program.

Intermodal transport

In the 2014 – 2020 financial perspective, an amount of EUR 145 million will be allocated for the development of intermodal transport. On the trans-European (TEN-T) networks, 21 multimodal platforms will be built until 2020, in the areas of large urban agglomerations (e.g. Gdańsk, Gdynia, Szczecin, Świnoujście, Poznań, Warszawa, Wrocław, Sławków, Kraków).

In 2014, around 9.6 million tons of freight were transported via intermodal transport, 11 percent- increase compared to 2013. The number of companies providing intermodal transport services increased from three in 2005 to 12 last year. The largest operators are: PKP Cargo (47%), DB Schenker Rail Poland SA (21%), Lotos Kolej (19%) and CTL Logistics (4%).

Rail infrastructure

At least 522 km of railway lines will be modernised and reconstructed, increasing speed and capacity, thus enabling rail to increase its competitiveness against other transport modes. The priority projects are:

- line CE 59 – Wroclaw Brochów / Grabiszyn Głogów-Zielona Góra-Szczecin Podjuchy sections (PLN 1 bn)
– E 59 Poznań Główny-Szczecin Dąbie section (PLN 2.2 bn)
– E 30 Kędzierzyn Koźle-Opole Zachodnie ( PLN 0,3 bn)

Rolling stock

Deputy Minister mentioned that it is planned to also purchase new rolling stock and upgrade the existing rolling stock fleet.

US-Kazakh TE33A diesel-electric loco has arrived in Poland for testing purposes on the Broad Gauge Metallurgy Line, the westernmost part of the 1520mm gauge rail network.

I'm inviting to the journey to Szklarska Poręba Jakuszyce. It's highest railway station in Poland - 886 ASL.

Is there any plans to put fence along tracks used by Pendolino? I think it is unheard-of high speed railways being not separated from people and animals crossing freely these tracks...
It is invitation to get killed by "surprisingly" fast approaching train. We had already couple of these cases in Poland involving Pendolino.
Please, don't say that only stupid people dies on track and that is their own responsibility... I agree to some degree but at least it should be put something in places for safety (fence).

I dont know, what is it up to, but sometimes you can see fence along the rail tracks.

I've got a question about the railway junctions / switches around Wroclaw Glowny. Do the Polish Railways still construct switches with wooden sleepers? It looks like there are new switches and double slip switches constructed witch are quieter and contain new point motors.

I can - unfortunately - not post lings or images, as my post count is below 10 posts.

Regards

Yes, wooden sleepers on crossings (especially more complicated as double slip switches) are still widely used although concrete is progressing. You may also find many wooden ties put on recently renovated tracks but interestingly steel sleepers are a rarity.
