This is one of the biggest investments in Warsaw, amounting to over PLN 1 bn (EUR 230.4 mln),” said the Warsaw mayor Rafał Trzaskowski during the opening ceremony of the new section of the Line M2, adding that 75 percent of the funds came from the EU.

Jerzy Kwieciński, the Minister of Infrastructure and Development pointed out that the Warsaw Metro is among the top beneficiaries of the EU funds in Poland.

The Warsaw Metro currently consists of two lines, Line M1 that links central Warsaw with its northern and southern districts, and the Line M2 linking the eastern part of the city to the west. The “core” of the second metro line in Warsaw was opened in March 2015.

Currently, there are ten stations of the second line available to use, in total there will be 21. The construction of the whole M2 line is to be completed by 2023.

Around 150,000 passengers use the M2 line daily.
