Today, on November 6, 2023, PKP Polish Railway Lines and ECM Group Poland signed two agreements for the supervision of the investment tasks related to the reconstruction of the Lębork – Słupsk section and the Słupsk station. Passengers traveling between Lębork and Słupsk can expect faster and more comfortable rail journeys thanks to new investments. The planned works include additional stops and a second track, expanding the travel options. PKP Polish Railway Lines S.A. signed agreements totaling nearly PLN 1.85 billion.
“The signed agreements concern investments of crucial importance for this part of the Pomeranian Voivodeship. The railway is improving nationwide as we effectively combat transportation exclusion, building a railway that is safe, predictable, and environmentally friendly,” said Andrzej Bittel, Secretary of State in the Ministry of Infrastructure.
“The modernization of the Słupsk station and the line towards the Tri-City will encourage the choice of trains for daily commutes to work and school. Better access to the railway will also be provided for people with limited mobility. The efficient use of funds from the state budget and EU subsidies by PKP Polish Railway Lines contributes to the construction of a modern railway that meets the expectations of travelers,” said Ireneusz Merchel, President of the Management Board of PKP Polish Railway Lines S.A.
The modernization of the Lębork – Słupsk section (railway line 202 Gdańsk Główny – Stargard) will enhance passenger comfort in daily commutes to work or school, as well as on the Tri-City – Szczecin route. One track will be rebuilt, and a second track will be added over a length of 47.5 km, increasing the line’s capacity for more efficient travel. Upon completion of all works on the Lębork – Słupsk section and planned works on the Gdynia Chylonia – Lębork section, along with obtaining the required permits, the travel time between Gdynia Chylonia and Słupsk will be reduced by approximately 15 minutes. Passenger trains will accelerate from 120 km/h to 160 km/h, and freight trains from 70 km/h to 120 km/h.
Renovated and new platforms at stations and stops, including Leśnice, Pogorzelice, Potęgowo, Głuszyno Pomorskie, Strzyżyno Słupskie, Damnica, Jezierzyce Słupskie, and three new stops in Runowo, Łebien, and Siemianice, will provide additional access to trains. The modernized Lębork – Słupsk line will see increased safety levels through new traffic control devices, three new railway bridges, one new railway viaduct, and six new underground crossings contributing to improved communication. The investment also includes the reconstruction of three railway bridges, 12 railway viaducts, nine road viaducts, and 24 culverts. The traction network will be replaced.
The construction work on the Lębork – Słupsk section is carried out by INTERCOR Sp. z o.o., with a contract value of PLN 1.284 billion.
At the Słupsk station, three platforms will be rebuilt, higher for easier boarding. Convenient access for people with limited mobility will be provided by elevators from the reconstructed underground passage. Historical shelters and kiosks will be preserved and restored on the platforms, emphasizing the station’s historical character. A modern passenger information system will facilitate orientation, and displays will inform about train arrivals and departures.
A new local control center with a railway traffic control system will ensure efficient and safe train operations. The railway bridge in Słupi will be renovated to allow for the second track to cross the river. The investment also includes the reconstruction of three railway viaducts, one underground passage under the tracks, and five culverts. In Kobylnica Słupska, along railway line no. 202, a new platform will be built, increasing passenger service capabilities on the Słupsk – Szczecin route.
The construction work at Słupsk station is carried out by TORPOL S.A., with a contract value of nearly PLN 562 million.
The completion of construction works at Słupsk station and on the Lębork – Słupsk section is planned for 2026.
The project titled ‘Works on railway line no. 202 on the Gdynia Chylonia – Słupsk section’ is planned for implementation within two financial perspectives of the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment 2014-2020 (POIiŚ) and the European Funds for Infrastructure, Climate, and Environment Program 2021-2027 (FEnIKS).
