EIB: more support for modernisation of Polish railways

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is lending EUR 40 million to PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe SA (PLK) for upgrading the rail tracks and signalling system in East Poland. Thanks to the EIB loan, the track and platforms at three railway stations between Warsaw and the Belarusian border (Siedlce, Lukow and Miedzyrzec Podlaski) will be modernised. Furthermore, the signalling system on 78 km of double track mainline between Siedlce and Biala Podlaska will be improved. Modernisation works are due to begin in 2013 and will continue until the end of 2015. (ben)
