Assistance agreement signed between PKP PLK and UIC as part of the Warsaw-Lodz-Poznan high speed project

  • High-Speed

On the occasion of the technical and statutory meetings held in Warsaw during the week of 9 June, an assistance agreement was also signed between Polish infrastructure manager PKP PLK and UIC. This agreement calls for UIC’s support and experience in the development of Poland’s high speed rail link between Warsaw, Lodz and Poznan.

This assistance, tantamount to a peer review of the main stages of the project, was requested by PKP PLK, which considers UIC as a technical platform of expertise and impartiality.

This agreement will not of course call into question the possibility for UIC members to respond to any tenders that PKP PLK may launch at a later date for project-supervision services.
