Progress of work on Warszawa Zachodnia train station

It has been less than 12 months since Budimex started to perform the contract for PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe and 30% of the work is already completed. We are erecting new construction elements on floor -2 of the new underground train station, which will be located under Warszawa Zachodnia, and we are building platforms 6, 7 and 8. Budimex has already developed almost 30 railroad turnouts.


Right now, the biggest construction challenge is the multi-disciplinary nature of our work and working right next to railway traffic’, says Jakub Konkiewicz, Contract Director at Budimex, which is the general contractor of the new Warszawa Zachodnia train station.


Finishing work on the roof of the train station is also underway. The ceiling has already been covered with panels and has LED lighting, which is partially powered by PV panels.


Right now, we are starting to erect the part of the train station building that will face Wola. We have already poured the foundation and are starting to erect the load-bearing structures of the building’, adds Jakub Konkiewicz.


29 railroad turnouts and 3.5 km of new rails have already been laid. We are erecting poles and gates for the new overhead lines. We are building an underpass from the platform of the ring railway to platforms 6, 7 and 8. When the ground was dug out, we started pouring the concrete floor. We also started equipping the Local Control Centre with the railway traffic control equipment, computers and electronic devices required to smoothly control train traffic.


500 people, 150 units of equipment and about 70 subcontractors are working on the construction site. The construction of the largest train station in Poland started in December 2020. It will be finished in 2023.


The project has been submitted for co-funding by the European Union from the Cohesion Fund as part of the Infrastructure and Environment Operational Programme.
