The progress of the entire contract carried out by Budimex for PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe, in less than 12 months from the start of the works, is already 30%. Structural elements are being built on level -2 of the new underground station under the Warszawa Zachodnia station, platforms 6, 7 and 8 are being constructed. Budimex has already built nearly 30 new railway turnouts.

The biggest construction challenge at the moment is the multi-discipline nature of the works carried out and the performance of works in the immediate vicinity of the railway traffic – says Jakub Konkiewicz – Budimex Contract Director – the general contractor for the construction of the new Warszawa Zachodnia station.

Finishing works on the roof structure of the station are also underway. The ceiling of the roof is already covered with the target panels and has the target LED lighting, powered m.in from photovoltaic panels.

At the moment, we are starting the construction of the station building from the side of Wola. Its foundations have already been poured, we are starting to construct the load-bearing elements of the building – adds Jakub Konkiewicz

29 turnouts and 3.5 km of new tracks have been laid. Poles and gates of the new overhead contact line are being built. An underground passage is being built between the platform on the ring line to platforms 6, 7, 8. After removing the soil, the pouring of the concrete floor began. The Local Control Centre (LCS) building was equipped with railway traffic control devices, computers and electronics necessary for efficient train traffic.

0.5 thousand people, 150 equipment units and about 70 subcontractors work on the construction site. The construction of the largest railway station currently under construction in Poland began in December 2020. The works will be completed in 2023.

The project is applying for funding from the European Union from the Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Infrastructure and Environment.
