Poland: EIB appraises EUR 200m loan for modernisation of Sochaczew-Swarzedz rail section

The European Investment Bank is appraising a loan of EUR 200 million for PKP Polish Railway Lines project Modernisation of E20 Warsaw-Poznan, section Sochaczew-Swarzędz, forming 235 km of the core TEN-T network in Poland.

The project will complement the modernisation of the line that has been ongoing over the past decade. With the exception of European Rail Traffic Management System (ERTMS) implementation, which will be the subject of a separate project, the project will bring the section into conformity with the requirements applicable to the TEN-T core network. In particular, the works will include removing some speed limitations, improving drainage, increasing the capacity of the electrical energy supply system, modernisation of signalling systems and improvements to accessibility of the stations.

The total cost of the project is EUR 650 million.
