POLAND: A western extension of Warszawa metro Line M2 was opened by Mayor Rafał Trzaskowski and European Commissioner for Cohesion & Reforms Elisa Ferreira on June 30.

The extension runs 2·7 km from Ksiecia Janusza to Bemowo, with an intermediate station at Ulrychów.


It was built by a consortium of Gülermak and Astaldi under a contract signed in November 2018, with EU sources covering 70% of the 959m złoty cost


The extension takes Line M2 to 15·3 km in length. A further 3·9 km western extension from Bemowo to Karolin with intermediate stations at Lazurowa and Chrzanów is being built by the same contractors at a cost of 1·62bn złoty, while an eastern extension is scheduled to open later this year.
