According to PKP PLK, all work on the project “Improvement of the access railway infrastructure to the port of Gdansk” was completed with a delay of almost a year. Agreements to improve rail access to the ports of Trójmiasto (an urban agglomeration consisting of Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia) were signed in June 2019. The total value of the contracts is almost PLN 3 billion. It is reported by Railway Supply magazine with reference to Rynek Kolejowy.


According to PKP PLK, due to the work performed, longer and heavier trains with a length of 750 meters and an axle load of 22.5 tons reach the berths. As part of the project, almost 70 km of tracks and 233 turnouts were built and electrified. Currently, despite the implementation of investments, access to the port is significantly difficult due to the increase in coal traffic.

The project was complemented by the construction of an automobile overpass. 3 bridges, 2 overpasses and several culverts were restored. As part of the work, interlocking stations were built and modernized, equipped with new computer devices and telecommunication systems, which ensured the efficient and safe movement of trains. 13 railway crossings were modernized .

Nearly 40 percent of the investment value was funded by the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). Improved rail links to the Port of Gdansk have resulted in a more environmentally friendly, efficient and safer way to transport goods by rail.
