New rail line to Wrocław Airport receives EU support

The European Union’s (EU) TEN-T Programme will invest over €600,000 for studies on a new rail connection between the airport and the city centre of Wrocław in Poland.

This new line is expected to trigger increased air traffic and promote green passenger and freight transport to and from the gateway.

The EU says the project will contribute to the airport's development into an important transport node connected by different, interoperable transport modes.

Other benefits include increasing the accessibility of Lower Silesia and improving its traffic capacity to enhance the region's economic growth.

The study will come up with the environmental documentation, construction and execution designs, as well as legal, financial and quality procedures preparing the rail line's construction.

EU financers came up with the funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Annual Call 2013, priority 'Multimodal transport', and its implementation will be monitored by INEA, the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by December 2015.
