Warsaw station to get stunning new multi-billion zł facelift
A neglected Warsaw railway station is to get a stunning 2.4 bln PLN facelift.
Set to begin in 2021, the makeover will turn the Warszawa Zachodnia (Warsaw West) station into Poland’s most modern train station by 2023.
Designed by DWAA Architekci, the new station will feature a modern, minimalistic look and bring more comfort for commuters, who will enjoy roofed platform halls, lifts, escalators as well as shops and waiting rooms.
Additionally, one extra platform will be added bringing the total number to eight.
Andrzej Adamczyk, the minister of Infrastructure, said: “The reconstruction of the Warszawa Zachodnia station is a revolution on Warsaw’s transportation map.
“Thousands of commuters use it daily. More suburban and long-distance trains will be able to pass after the reconstruction is completed.
“It is the next step to safe, comfortable and reliable Polish railways.”
Warszawa Zachodnia is the busiest railway junction in the country, with approximately 1,000 commuter and long-distance trains passing through every day.
PKP PLK CEO Ireneusz Merchel said: “Warszawa Zachodnia will be tailored to the needs of all commuters.
“The station’s new features will improve its significance in the transportation systems of Warsaw, the Mazovian Voivodeship and even Poland.”
The project is being co-funded by the European Union.
