Trakcja PRKiI will renovate the railway to Beskid Mountains

Trakcja PRKiI signed a contract worth PLN 349.2 million net for the design and comprehensive modernization of a railway line between Bronów and Wisła Głębce.

The signed agreement is another one increasing the pool of new contracts concluded on much better terms - says Marcin Lewandowski, President of Trakcja PRKiI. We have been waiting a long time for this agreement to be concluded and we already have a complete team, which immediately starts the design works, and from March next year we want to start the construction works.”

The investment includes reconstruction of tracks and subgrades on sections with a total length of over 40 km, installation of railway traffic control equipment and telecommunication systems. The project also includes the replacement of the overhead contact line and electrification of the decommissioned Goleszów - Cieszyn section. 105 engineering structures will be reconstructed: bridges, viaducts and culverts. As many as 17 platforms will undergo thorough modernization, these buildings will gain new shelters, small architectural elements and lighting, and will be adapted to the needs of people with reduced mobility. Within the framework of further improvement of the safety level, 67 railway and road crossings with pedestrian crossings will be rebuilt.

The investment will increase line capacity and speed of passenger and freight trains to 120 and 80 km/h respectively, while reducing environmental impact. The project will contribute to the development of the region's economic competitiveness and make it much easier for all mountain tourism enthusiasts to reach the Beskid Śląski region.

The agreement provides for the completion of the investment by the end of 2021.
