New Łódź Fabryczna is dead-end station or through station? Also - where the tunnel begins (at Łódź Widzew or further to the west, near the Widzew stadium, west of railway junction), and where is the tunnel western end. What is the lenght of the tunnel?

Thank you!

Next few years Lodz Fabryczna will be death-end station, but in tender phase is planned tunnel under the city, which will connect Lodz Fabryczna and Lodz Kaliska. At the same time with tunnel will be built two new underground stations: Lodz Zielona and Lodz Ogrodowa.



Here's a space for tunnel's portal:

Łódź Zielona will be an interchange with the main north-south tram route in the city.

The tender for the tunnel has been announced just 2 days ago

The first train entering the station (as a test drive for the train drivers):



The small station seen at the beginning of the movie, Łódź Niciarniana, has also been totally rebuilt.

Btw - a bit OT for this part of the forum - but is there a map with modified tram lines when new Fabryczna will be opened?

And - a question for witos: I saw some plans where also direct tunnel connecting Fabryczna and the line to Zduńska Wola is proposed... This is real, realistic plan, or just long term proposal?

Thnx!

It's exactly the tunnel we are just talking about

From Łódź Fabryczna you will have a tunnel to Łódź Kaliska, where the line to Zduńska Wola begins.

This is the Polish thread about the new tram and road infrastructure of the station: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1484768

This drawing is very close to the current state:



But the north-east arc at the intersection in the left upper corner of this map (Kilińskiego/Narutowicza) wasn't built.
The sidewalk has been widened instead. Unfortunately, the trams in the Kilińskiego street (the north-south street with
trams on the left of the map) cannot be redirected through the new section of tracks, but the stop in Kilińskiego street
is anyway close.

Also the Traugutta street (west from the station, from Kilińskiego street to the edge of the map) has not been rebuilt yet
and it still has its old shape - it connects with Kilińskiego street along the line of the new tram tracks. And the streets south
from it are still to be built (the idea is to make the blocks of streets which are too big smaller).

What's more... you want to know, which tracks from this map were there before and which ones are new.

Before, there were tracks in the Narutowicza street (the most north west-east street), in the Kilińskiego street (the second
north-south street from the left - the first one with trams) and in the Kopcińskiego street (the most east north-south street).
Also a short section of the tracks in Tramwajowa street (third one from the east, and second one with tram tracks) was
present, but it was used only for technical purposes (in Tramwajowa street there is a tram renovation center, which originally
was the first tram depot in the city).

The sections drawn with dashed lines are not yet built (apart from the four-track section in the western part of the map - it's
the main tram stop in front of the station building).

The station building is the one marked with the number 2.10.3.KK/U.

Actually I'm not Witos but I can answer you.

Here are maps of tram and bus network after Fabryczny openining:

https://www.facebook.com/ZDiTLodz/ph...type=3&theater

The eastern end of the tunnel is located here:

https://www.google.pl/maps/place/Kon...9!4d19.4994999

The tunnel linking Lodz Fabryczna with linie to Kalisz directly is planned high speed line tunnel. It should be built in 2030 together with the whole Polish HST line

But trains only on one level... And not so many shops - even if they wanted, the EU grant doesn't allow that.

And have a look here, people inserting the photos of the old station, what a difference it makes! : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...73086&page=625

From how it looks like - maybe I am not objective, but it's better than Berlin Hbf!

Remtrak upgrades Idzikowice works
05 Dec 2016





POLAND: The Remtrak rolling stock maintenance business of passenger operator PKP Intercity held a ceremony on November 29 to mark the completion of a 10m złoty upgrade programme at its Idzikowice works, including the construction of a new paint shop and the extension of the existing maintenance building.

The expanded facilities should enable work to be undertaken on up to five vehicles at any one time, increasing output from 14 to 20 cars a month. By undertaking more repair and refurbishment work in-house, PKP IC hopes to improve fleet availability while reducing both costs and its dependence on outside contractors
