New Metro Stations for Warsaw Soon
January 16, 2008   
Article's tools:

Warsaw's north-south subway line may finally be completed this year, the company in charge of the project, Warszawskie Metro, said.

In April, a new station, Słodowiec in the northern district of Bielany, is expected to be ready. Because of construction works, the currently northernmost station of Marymont will be closed for five weeks beginning Feb. 11. Trains will be running only as far north as Wilsona Square.

Three other stations, Stare Bielany, Wawrzyszew and Młociny, are also under construction, and Warszawskie Metro is preparing to build the Muranów and Plac Konstytucji stations in central Warsaw.

The Polish capital's subway system is far less developed than those of most other European capitals. So far it only has a single north-south line, with an east-west line on the drawing board. Warsaw authorities started to plan metro construction as far back as 1925. But, due to a combination of political and economic reasons, it was not until 1995 that the first 11-kilometer stretch of the subway was launched, linking Kabaty in the south with Politechnika in the center.
