Cohesion policy invests in a sustainable, fast and safe mobility in Poland
The railway line linking Warsaw to Kiev, in Ukraine, via the Polish city of Lublin, will benefit from major upgrading works financed by the Cohesion Fund. €750.5 million will help build or renovate 15 viaducts and tunnels and increase the capacity of the line on 150 km, between the cities of Otwock and Lublin in Eastern Poland. A modern signalling system will be introduced, while dangerous level crossings will be eliminated. Once the entire Lublin-Warsaw line has been renovated thanks to Cohesion policy support, travel time between the two cities will be reduced by 45 minutes. The project also aims to relieve congestion in the outskirts of Warsaw by encouraging city dwellers to abandon their cars in favour of a modern and fast public transport system, for a better quality of life in the city.
