Warsaw starts the construction of a third metro line

Six new stations should be ready by 2028

Warsaw is getting ready for the construction of a third metro line, as announced by mayor Rafał Trzaskowski on Monday, 15 March. Despite a difficult year for municipal finances, the Polish capital is preparing for significant infrastructure investments, the first stage of which shall be given the green light on Thursday by the city council. The new line will connect Praga-South (Praga-Południe) with the city centre, and ultimately also with Ochota district and Mokotów.

Transport communication – a key priority despite the pandemic

The Mayor of Warsaw has approved the construction of the third metro line and the city council should decide whether to transfer the money for the first stage of works this week. That phase will last until 2028 and previews the addition of six new stations.

The new line will run from the National Stadium station, which was planned as a transfer junction from the very beginning. From there, the M3 will go to the following stations: Dworzec Wschodni, Mińska, Rondo Wiatraczna, Ostrobramska, Jana Nowaka-Jeziorański and the Gocław station.

In addition, there will also be a branch leading to the “Kozia Górka” Technical & Holding Station. The National Stadium in Warsaw will thus become a key communication node on the right-bank of Warsaw, enabling the transfer between trains at the railway station, bus lines and trams.

It was not an easy decision, because the financial situation of the city is really difficult. Warsaw must, however, become not only an ideal place to work but also a dream place to live. The construction of the third metro line is of key importance here, because communication is one of the most important services we provide to our residents,” Mayor Trzaskowski was quoted on the municipal portal. He further explained that the city wants to prepare well for the new financial framework of the European Union.

The new line will serve an estimated 180,000 people living in Praga-Południe alone and the large housing estates of Gocław, Grochowa and Kamionka. Its itinerary has been mapped based on the analyses of independent experts based on conclusions from the work on a new study of the conditions and directions of spatial development in Warsaw - a key document that determines the growth of the city and its further development.
