EU promotes sustainable urban mobility by funding the extension of the Warsaw Metro

In line with the objectives of the Energy Union's low-emission mobility strategy, the EU is investing over €432 million from the Cohesion Fund in the extension of the Warsaw Metro.

The major project adopted for Warsaw will fund the extension of the Metro Line 2, linking the Eastern part of the city to the West. A total of six new metro stations will be constructed, three stations in each part of the city.

 

The project also foresees the construction of a technical terminal, the purchase of 13 new trains as well as preparatory works for further extension of the line. Works are expected to be completed by November 2019.

The Warsaw Metro currently consists of two lines. The first segment of Line 2 opened in 2015, with EU financial support.
