Why didn’t PKP… ?

Sunday, 19 October 2008

Alan Heath asks a good question. Why, when the Zlote Tarase (Golden Terraces) shopping centre development was being negotiated with the Warsaw authorities, wasn’t the original option pursued of linking the development to Warszawa Centralna station? The centre would have gained more shoppers; PKP and its customers would have gained a refurbished station. Alan points to Leipzig Station as an example of what could have been done. We are stumped for an answer, but will investigate.
