Polregio and DB Regio AG Region Nordost have signed a new framework agreement that regulates the cooperation between the two companies in the field of cross-border transport. Polregio currently operates over 35 train pairs daily between Poland and Germany. Only on the Szczecin-Berlin route, after the completion of the modernization of the railway line, the number of trains will increase to 50. This is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Nakolei.


Currently, work is underway to modernize the Szczecin-Berlin railway line on both the Polish and German sides. By 2025, two tracks will be built, the railway line will be electrified and upgraded to a speed of 160 km/h. After completion of the work, the number of trains between Szczecin and Berlin and Lübeck will increase to 50. Szczecin-Berlin trains will run every hour, while direct trains will run every two hours. There will be a spare train with a shortened route to Angermünde station, where it joins the train to Berlin, and a direct train to Berlin leaves an hour later. Travel time to the German capital will be reduced to 90 minutes.
