Olsztyn West reborn
The train station has been renovated by SKB and SKB Budownictwo

POLAND The Olsztyn Zachodni [West] station has reopened after extensive renovations. Thanks to the project by the Polish State Railways [PKP S.A.], the station is now fully-adapted for the disabled.

The work has been carried out by a consortium of SKB and SKB Budownictwo in a contract worth app. PLN 3 mln. The redevelopment of the station was financed through a state subsidy and from PKP’s own funds. The work included the refurbishment of the façade and the interior of the station, replacing the windows and doors as well as all the installations. Improvements have also been made to the square in front of the station, where more than 40 trees have been planted as well as around 950 shrubs. New benches and seats for passengers have also been provided, as well as eleven new parking spaces near the building, including one for the disabled. All the architectural barriers have been removed, while a ramp connecting the station building and the town has also been built. Special paths and tactile maps of the station with Braille labelling have been provided for the visually impaired. Those with hearing impairments can use ground loop sensors to make it easier to understand tannoy announcements. A parent and child area has also been provided and the outdoor waiting area has been covered with a roof. There are also nine bicycle racks and a self-service repair station under the roof. The station has been equipped with a modern passenger information system, video surveillance and an intelligent building management system. Because of its close proximity to Olsztyn’s Old Town, three local information boards have been erected at the entrance to the station’s platforms.

“Olsztyn Zachodni is the first station in the Warmian–Masurian province to have been modernised in the last few years,” says Krzysztof Mamiński, the CEO of PKP S.A. “But this is not the only project being carried out in the region. Preparations for a thorough renovation of Olsztyn Główny station are in progress and the design work is being prepared for a new station in Nidzica as well as for the renovation of stations in Olsztynek and Szczytno. A station project is also being prepared in Susz.
