These latest additions to two significant contracts are clear evidence of our client PKP PLK’s confidence in the expertise of our teams and their ability to carry out assignments involving many different competencies. I look forward to the successful completion of these additional tasks and to our continued contribution to the modernisation of the country’s railway network.Marta Pięta, SYSTRA Poland Managing Director
New environmental challenges for Line 131
At the end September 2022, SYSTRA Poland signed with PKP PLK for additional scope of works to the main contract for the modernisation of railway Line 131 on the section between Nakło Śląskie and Kalina, which forms part of the Pan-European Transport Corridor VI linking Chorzów Batory and Maksymilianowo.
Among the numerous assignments included in the additional scope of works is a supplementary nature inventory for the application of a new decision on environmental conditions, the design of two additional bridges, two viaducts, ten culverts, reconstruction of the railway viaduct within ul. Sienkiewicza in Tarnowskie Góry, as well as reinforcement of track systems capacity on the Kalety railway station.
Line 12: a railway line of national importance
As well as the extra works on Line 131, SYSTRA Poland, again on behalf of PKP PLK, is to carry out additional work on railway Line 12 between the towns of Skierniewice and Łuków, thereby continuing the involvement of our Polish teams. Line 12 runs from central to eastern Poland along a corridor forming part of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T*) programme.
These additional assignments concern the design of more platforms in seven locations and the development of a programme and spatial concept design for the overhead power supply line.
All the newly designed platforms are 200 metres long, take into consideration the needs of persons with reduced mobility, and comply with interoperability requirements. Under-track crossings are also to be designed at three locations.
