Tramwaje Warszawskie (Warsaw tram operator) has announced a long-awaited tender for the construction of a new tram route at Kasprzaka St. in Wola district.
What will be the new route to Kasprzaka?
New tracks will be built on the 2.3 km section between Wolska and Skierniewicka Streets. The existing 1.2 km long Wolska and Kasprzaka tracks will be modernized. Passengers will be able to use six new stops: at Płocka, at the Warszawa Wola railway stop and at Ordona St.
The tram route will run along the rapidly expanding housing estates in Odolany. The tracks on Kasprzaka St., as on Grochowska St., will be planted with greenery. The new route will provide quick access to two metro stations – Rondo Daszyńskiego and Rondo ONZ. The travel time on the newly built section of the route will not exceed 15 minutes. In the future, the route along Kasprzaka St. will be able to connect with two others towards the Warszawa Zachodnia station.
How long will the construction take?
The construction of the new tram route will be completed in 2023. The contractor will have 20 months to complete the construction works. Until then, the 3-month winter periods between mid-December and mid-March will not be counted. If the weather allows it, it will also be able to carry out the works in this period.
