Modernisation of the Warsaw railway node, phase 1: railway lines Warszawa Wlochy - Grodzisk Mazowiecki and Warszawa Golabki/ Warszawa Zachodnia - Warszawa Gdanska.

In addition to the benefits of improving these sections themselves, the project will also allow for traffic to be temporarily diverted from the main Warsaw axis Warszawa Zachodnia – Warszawa Centralna – Warszawa Wschodnia in order to proceed with the works on this line.
