PLN 900m more for rail infrastructure per year thanks to law amendment

Poland's lower house of parliament amended laws regulating rail infrastructure access charges, which entails some PLN 900 million increase in annual budget spending on rail infrastructure.

The amendment implements a European Court of Justice ruling, which stated in May last year that Polish regulations on calculating rail fees had been inadequately formulated, potentially overcharging carriers using rail infrastructure.

The law entails a PLN 500 million budget subsidy this year for the national rail fund to finance the reduction in fees for rail carriers.

In broader terms, the law rejigs the rail infrastructure financing system, turning around the cost categories financed with a budget subsidy and with receipts from rail carriers.

The amendment will result in some PLN 900 million increase in annual budget spending on rail infrastructure, according to its authors.
