    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project concerns the modernisation of a key section of the railway line running from Bedzin through Katowice in Poland to the Czech Republic-Slovakia border (E65 LOT C). This the first phase of a multi-phased modernisation of the line from Bedzin through Katowice to the Polish-Czech border.


    The project is expected to increase the quality of rail services provided in Poland, as well as promote travel by rail. In line with EU objectives it should therefore enhance sustainable transport. Since the project is located in a convergence zone (Slaskie Region/NUTS PL22), it will also enhance regional development by enhancing connectivity.

    EUR 175 million

    Total cost (Approximate amount)
