PORR Polska has commenced work on the renovation of Warsaw’s main station, Warszawa Centralna. The first part of the station being worked on is the section of the main hall next to al. Jerozolimska; work on the subway level will start in September starting from north; and work on the platforms will commence in February 2011.

The platforms will be renovated one at a time and individually withdrawn from service while their renovation takes place. Warszawa Centralna as a whole will continue to remain open while work takes place though certain local services will be diverted to Warszawa Gdanska. Interestingly PKP’s press release does not give a completion target for the refurbishment, though we understand that the work is supposed to be be ready in time for the UEFA European Football Championship which will take place in Poland and the Ukraine between 20 June and 1 July in 2012.
