Poland to invest PLN 67bn in rail infrastructure by 2023

Poland will spend PLN 67 billion on investments in railways to 2023, according to the national rail program sent to social consultations.

The bulk of the program will be financed with EU funds: The Polish railways PLK are about to receive at least EUR 9.48 billion EU co-financing to 2020.

Additional financing is scheduled to come from excise tax on car fuels. This source should provide some PLN 9.7 billion in funding in the 2016-2023 period.

Railway operator PKP Intercity says it serviced 13.4 million passengers in the first half of this year, up 16.5% year on year.

The company said it expected the full-year figure to hit 30 million, up by 5 million year on year.

I am curious when PKP will finally install wifi internet on the Pendolino trains. For me this would not be an issue if along the entire route, gdansk to warsaw and then warsaw to wroclaw, mobile 3G networks were available all the time but there are many black holes along the route where there is no signal at all.

Perhaps when the new timetable comes out in December, there will be wifi on all the trains, but knowing PKP, probably not.

Polish Prime Minister announced that new railway to Tymbark will be built and already existing railway Rabka - Nowy Sącz - Muszyna ( border with Slovakia ) will be modernized.

These investitions will allow to reduce significantly travel time between Krakow and Zakopane/Rabka/Krynica/Nowy Sącz/Muszyna/Slovakia.

Since the train wifi uses the same mobile network for its internet connection, you won't really see much improvement.

The only improvement may come when the combined coverage by all operators is significantly bigger, as the train connection uses mostly this combined coverage.

Not exactly so. First, the connection inside of a Pendolino car is very poor - ANY antenna outside will give you a better connection in the same location. Then, you can use signal boosters.

Well, that's what I experienced in the CZ. Whenever my phone did not have good data connection, the wi-fi did not perform as well. In the NL I have mostly better data connection via my phone than via the train wi-fi, I guess this is due to the aggregation on the wi-fi.

In general I think that wi-fi is nice feature, but more important seems to me access to electricity (either USB, or normal plug) in order to be able to re-charge the laptop, phone, etc.

Czas na halę zachodnią.













Świetlik środkowy, widać układaną nawierzchnię na peronach.

great to see Sopot has created not only a new railway station but an exciting and charming new city centre.

Seems like a massive train station for such a small city. Very nice, though.

Only a small part of the complex is the train station, check out the pdf

http://cms.nowecentrumsopotu.pl/prom...-sopotu-en.pdf

scroll down to page 8, and you will see the size of the train station in relation to the entire building.
