4. SKM


SKM opening is planned for the end of 2005. It will be kind of commuter rail. It's a new service managed by the city, but it will run on the existing railroads owned by the national rail operator PKP. Unfortunately no renovation of existing stations is planned in a short term, but in a long term they even want to open the new underground station in the city center.

Here I modified the UrbanRail map by adding planned SKM lines.


First line will run on the Diametrical Route through the city centre in a tunnel and on the eastern bank of Vistula river on estacades. The entire line will be located in the city borders.

Ochota station in a dig

underground Srodmiescie station

further stretch


- old-new trains for SKM (under general renovation)

Direct pedestrian connection between Centrum metro station and Srodmiescie raliway station is just at the planning stage. Construction will start in 2006 or 2007 maybe.

Very interesting report

It looks to be a good transportation network

Imponent tram network (120 km of tram lines) confirms Polish "vocation" to tram
Many cities in Poland have a tram network: very cool

Local government planns are changing month by month. Last news says there will be also partly underground line from the center to the airport built thanks to the EU funds. Cooperation with the national rail operator which owns railroads is difficult. First pilot line (red on the map) which is planned to be opened this year, will be around 25 km long. Initially trains will be rather rare (6 trains are being renovated), but the most important thing is inauguration of the completely new servis. Year by year it will be upgraded.
