Four deputy Ministers – including rail minister,  Andrzej Massel, at the former Ministry of Transport, Construction and maritime Affairs – have been dismissed by Elzbieta Bienkowska, the new boss at the ‘super-ministry’ of Infrastructure and Regional Development.

Massel was appointed Undersecretary of State responsible rail by previous transport boss Slawomir Nowak on 28 December 2010 to sort out the timetabling chaos that occurred under his predecessor Juliusz Engelhardt.
