Wroclaw Borek tram depot

POLAND: Operator MPK Wrocław has awarded Zakład Sieci i Zasilania a 42·6m złoty contract for an extensive rebuild of the city’s Borek tram depot.

The contract award came after three rounds of tendering, which saw bids come in above the initial 27·2m złoty budget.

The project to increase capacity includes the addition of 1 918 m of track and 24 turnouts, removing or replacing unused facilities and extending the existing buildings. A new maintenance hall will have two tracks, and a two-storey office building and a warehouse are also to be built.

The project is scheduled to take 14 months, with the site remaining operational throughout.
