    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project consists of the modernisation of approximately 71km of mainline track between Czempin and Rawicz, which is part of the Poznan – Wroclaw line and of the European Rail Corridor E59. The section is located on the core TEN-T rail network.


    The modernisation will entail replacing the track bed, track, structures and catenary, largely along the existing alignment, together with improvements to the power supply, signalling, telecoms and stations. The project will help prepare the section of line for future installation of the European Railway Traffic Management System (ERTMS), scheduled as part of the Polish National ERTMS Deployment Plan for implementation within the next ten years. The project will complement existing EIB operations, PLK Railway Modernization E59 Phase 1 (CA/11/273) and PLK Railway Modernization E59 Phase 2 (CA/12/411). The promoter intends to submit an application to co-finance the project under the Connecting Europe Facility.


    Proposed EIB finance (Approximate amount)

    EUR 100 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)

    EUR 383 million
