Juliusz Engelhardt, until yesterday Under Secretary of State at the Ministry of Infrastructure responsible for Poland’s railways, has been sacked. Announcing Engelhardt’s departure Prime Minister Donald Tusk said, We have made a start to clear up the mess on Poland’s railways. There is such as thing as respect for passengers – for PKP’s clients – and it is clear that here it is sadly lacking. This chaos was linked the bad weather, but it was accented by badly prepared timetables and a mistaken view of competition between railway companies.
