Progress of the construction on the Warszawa Zachodnia train station

Construction of the new Warszawa Zachodnia Station is over 55 per cent finished. More than 500 people and 200 machines are working on the site.


The General Contractor for the reconstruction – Budimex SA – is entering the next phase of work. From 11 December (Sunday), construction workers will be working on the old platforms, closer to Jerusalem Avenue with numbers: 3, 4 and 5. Above this part of the station, a new structure of roofing and passenger service elements will also be built: waiting rooms, benches, information boards, lighting, etc. Work will also continue underground – in a new tunnel at level -1 under the platforms not in use. On the surface, a new track system with an overhead line will be built. Budimex will also build a retaining wall on the eastern side of the station, which in the future will enable an additional connection between the tracks of the cross-city railway line. Construction of the new station hall on the Wola side is also underway.


Due to the works, train traffic and passenger services from platforms 3, 4 and 5 will move to platforms 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 and 9. In order to facilitate access to these platforms, an entrance to the footbridge was created from the Jerusalem Avenue side. The entire footbridge over the platforms will now be operational, with entrances from both the Ochota and Wola sides. Between the bus terminal on Tunelowa Street, next to the footbridge exit and platform 9, a Budimelex runs for passengers at all times. In the second half of 2023, platforms 5 and 4 will be opened consecutively, and then the works will move to platforms 1 and 2.


The works on Warszawa Zachodnia are one of the largest investments by PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A., of over PLN 1.9 billion net. The project is implemented under POIiŚ 5.1-13, entitled: “Works on the Warsaw cross-city line between Warszawa Wschodnia and Warszawa Zachodnia”. The work began in December 2020. The project is planned to be completed in 2024.


Warszawa Zachodnia is a strategic station in Poland in terms of the number of trains running there. On average, about 1,000 agglomerative, regional, long-distance national and international trains pass through it every day.
