State-owned railway operator PKP PLK plans to sign deals for infrastructure modernization worth PLN 67 billion by 2019. “I am 100 percent convinced that we will contract the entire program within the next two years,” PKP PLK CEO Ireneusz Merchel said. The deals would be a part of the National Railway Program (KPK), which aims to upgrade Poland’s railway infrastructure by 2023.
So far, PKP PLK has signed deals worth over PLN 10 billion and plans to sign deals worth up to PLN 20 billion by the end of this year.
The company is even planning to sign deals that are not included in the KPK. “At the moment, we are executing feasibility studies for schemes worth about PLN 16 billion, which are not in the Program,” he added.
