The Port of Gdynia and the Warsaw-based Centre for European Union Transport Projects have signed an agreement thanks to which the former will get approx. €4.6m (PLN 20m) for upgrading its Intermodal Rail Terminal.
The project, worth in total around €16.2m, will cover the electrification of the terminal's siding (2.5 km of tracks), setting up a new track and junctions (12 in total, out of which four will be brand-new, while eight - first demolished and then rebuilt), as well as installing a new rail traffic management system.
Thanks to these works, there will be no need to change the traction from diesel to electric any more, while the entire traffic will be automatized.
The investment will have been completed by end-January 2021.
