New tram contract

Trakcja PRKiI continues its expansion on municipal infrastructure market, landing a contract for comprehensive reconstruction of the road and track network in Krakowska Street in Krakow on the section from Rollego Street to Dietla Street, worth PLN 76.6 million net. On Thursday, 7 February 2019, the contract for the modernisation of the track bed was signed with Krakow Municipal Roads Authority (ZDMK).

The investment project will involve replacing 3.5 km of the overhead lines, reconstructing the track bed and installing the passenger information system. The track works technology to be applied will considerably reduce the noise and vibrations level caused by the tram cars.  The work will also include the reconstruction of Dietla Street on the section from Bożego Ciała Street to Augustiańska Street. Under the contract, the overhead line stays will be dismounted from the buildings and the line will be installed on stylized poles similar to those found in historical quarters of Krakow. New foot and cycle paths will be built, and new street lighting will be installed. The investment task will also include the reconstruction of electric power lines, telecom lines and sewer networks. The Józef Piłsudski bridge over the Vistula (built in 1933) will undergo comprehensive renovation, including the replacement of bridge bearings, certain elements of the steelwork and most of the rivets. The bridge will be sand-blasted and will receive feature lighting.

The investment project shall be completed within 10 months from the date of hand-over of the construction site. Trakcja PRKiI’s partner in the contractor consortium is the Spanish company COMSA.
