Ferrovial, through its Polish subsidiary Budimex, has been awarded a contract to rebuild the Warszawa Zachodnia train station, located in Warsaw’s western area of the city, in a project that is part of Poland’s National Railway Programme.
The contract, which amounts to 1,940 million złotych (about 433 million euros), includes the demolition of the current station and the construction of a new one with a large entrance hall in the northern area, nine platforms on the surface and an underground access corridor to the tracks, which at the same time serves as a shopping arcade.
Works involve the construction of a canopy covered with photovoltaic panels and a pedestrian walkway on the platforms, all in metal structure. The project also includes the remodelling of 30 kilometres of tracks and rail switchers and the construction of several connection branches, as well as the installation of rail traffic control systems and the rail traction network.
The works will also improve direct connection between the cities of Piaseczno and Legionowo, and between Legionowo and Chopin Airport. The construction of a multifunctional building for PKP, the railway infrastructure manager in Poland, is also included.
