The construction of a new section of route II of the subway line from Praga to Trocka station has been completed. The works were completed one day before the deadline.
Three new stations
The new route includes a 3.12 km section and three new metro stations: Szwedzka, Targowek Mieszkaniowy and Trocka. The general contractor handed over a set of documents on 10 May this year, thanks to which it will be possible to start the final acceptance of the investment. The process of taking over the newly built tunnels and stations from the contractor will be carried out by the Warsaw Metro, which is a substitute investor of the investment. Technical inspections have already been carried out by, among others, the National Sanitary Inspectorate and the State Fire Service.
The construction of the eastern section of the second metro line from Praga to Trocka began three years ago and lasted 38 months. The general contractor was Astaldi. The value of the investment amounts to PLN 1.067bn gross. The project is co-financed by the Cohesion Fund as part of the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020.
Further sections under construction
In November 2019, another section of the underground and stations on the western side of the Vistula, behind the Daszynskiego roundabout, are to be ready. Three new stations are being built there: Ksiecia Janusza, Młynow and Plock. The works are carried out by the Turkish company Gulermak.
At the beginning of this year the construction of the north-eastern end of the metro began. This section includes the construction of over 4 km of tunnels and stations Zacisze, Kondratowicza and Brodno. The general contractor for this section is a consortium of Gulermak and Astaldi, which will be 36 months old at the end of the works.
The shortest section of the second underground line will be constructed at the junction of Wola and Bemowo. It will consist of 2.5 km of tunnels and stations Ulrychow and Powstancow Slaskich. The contractor, a consortium of Gulermak and Astaldi companies, is to complete it by November 2021.
