PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. signed today (24 June 2019) three agreements to improve access to sea ports in Gdańsk and Gdynia. Their total net value amounts to nearly PLN 2.68bn.
Gdańsk for Torpol and Intercor
The project entitled Improvement of railway infrastructure of access to the port of Gdańsk includes, among others, reconstruction of over 70 km of tracks, 13 road and railway crossings and pedestrian crossings, replacement of 221 crossings or reconstruction of engineering facilities. The local control centre will also be expanded.
The project was divided into two tasks. The first one includes construction works on line 226 and Gdańsk Port Północny station, line 965 and Gdańsk Kanał Kaszubski station, while the second one includes construction works on line 227/249 and Gdańsk Zaspa Towarowa station and line 722. Both contracts went to a consortium of Torpol and Intercor for PLN 758m and PLN 391.9m net, respectively.
Gdynia for Budimex
The general contractor for the project entitled Improvement of railway access to the sea port in Gdynia is Budimex, who will perform works for PLN 1,529.3m. As part of the project, 115 km of tracks and 13 km of roads will be rebuilt. The accesses to the port gates will be electrified and the efficient service of warehouses will be provided by 356 new turnouts. Moreover, thanks to the reconstruction of the bridge and the construction of two viaducts, longer and heavier trains will be able to arrive at the port.
40% of the total value of the above-mentioned projects in the Tri-City ports constitutes EU funding from the funds of the CEF (Connecting Europe Facility) “Laczac Europe”. The work is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2021.
