POLAND A chance has arisen for a subsidy to be granted to Kraków for a feasibility study for the construction of a fast, collision-free system of municipal rail transport.

Tadeusz Trzmiel, the deputy mayor of Kraków, revealed on the city’s website that he had been informed by the deputy development minister Jadwiga Emilewicz that the ministry had given a positive opinion on the subsidy for the feasibility study. “Now we are waiting for a decision from the European Union on this matter,” reveals Tadeusz Trzmiel. The decision should be taken in the next few months and the possible outcome could be a 50 pct subsidy for the PLN 10 mln study. “If a positive decision is made, we will invite tenders for the preparation of the feasibility study this year so that it could be completed in 2019,” explains Tadeusz Trzmiel. “Such documentation would form the basis for tenders for the construction of the project under the ‘design and build’ format,” he adds.

The basis of the feasibility study is to be the ‘Study of Transport System Development in the City of Kraków, Including Construction of the Underground System, the Metro-Metrobus Variant’ report, which concluded that it was necessary to construct an underground transport system in the inner city centre. It recommended an app. 15 km, collision-free, fast rail link for the east to west of the city (connecting the Bronowice and Nowa Huta districts through the city centre).
