The company also announced that the project will build a railway line (about 1 km) between the Białystok Staroselce station and the Bialystok Nove Miasto station.

After reconstruction, there will be four covered platforms built at the Bialystok railway station. The historical building of Bialystok station (dates back to 1862) has recently been overhauled, using many modern solutions. The investment in the amount of about PLN 45 million was financed by PKP SA. The modernization of the station was co-financed by the EU under the Eastern Poland program.

The Chizhev-Bialystok section is the last modernized section of the Warsaw-Bialystok railway line. The total cost of works on this section of Rail Baltica is approximately 3.4 billion zlotys. The investment is co-financed by the EU from the CEF-Connecting Europe program. Work began in September 2020 and should be completed in 2023. After the completion of the modernization of the section, the trip from Bialystok to Warsaw will take about an hour and a half.
