New railway lines to be constructed for the future Hub Airport

Government plans to construct hundreds of kilometres of new railway lines, connecting to the new airport to be built near Warsaw.

The new Central Communication Port project is centered around an airport, to be constructed near Poland’s capital city. Passenger capacity of 45 million annually is planned, with possible expansions up to 100 million. Currently, the world’s busiest airport services 54 million passengers a year.

A highway, starting in Warsaw and continuing westward is already located near the planned site. Rail lines would be the final communication means of connecting to the Port, allowing for faster access from more distant regions of Poland. The plan calls for tracks allowing trains to travel at speeds of over 160 km/h.

Plans cover nearly 700 kilometres of tracks, in five southeastern Polish provinces.

The government has conducted talks with local governments, to ensure that the planned routes do not conflict with local infrastructure investments.
