This document identifies the leading rail works contractors operating in the current Polish market and provides an inside look at their finances and plans for future expansion.
It studies the overall railway construction sector as well as key segments, such as railway stations, routes, metro, tramlines and other prevalent infrastructure elements in Poland.
Macroeconomic data, projected levels of investment and funding options for new projects are all taken into consideration in the formulation of new forecasts for sector activity during the period 2014-2019.
Vital elements of this publication include…
- SWOT analysis of railway construction in Poland, along with in-depth examination of the most influential developments in the marketplace
- Predicted changes in market value for construction and assembly in Poland’s railway sector
- Summaries of the value and market share of Poland’s leading construction companies engaged in the railway sector
- Evaluation of upcoming railway investments during the forecast period, with extended coverage to 2020.
Benefit from thorough examination of complex industry issues…

- Investigation of mid (to 2016) and long term (to 2025) investment in railways in Poland
- Detailed discussion of ten of the most visibly active railway construction contractors in Poland – earnings, contracts and consortium connections.
Get answers to these key questions…
- How much 2014-2020 EU funding is available to PKP PLK? Will it be utilised on railway construction projects by 2020?
- How much is Poland’s railway construction sector worth now? What will be its value in 2019?
- How much of Poland’s current railway infrastructure will be upgraded during 2014-2019?
- How will materials prices evolve during the forecast period (2014-2019)?
- Which of Poland’s main railway stations are slated for remodeling projects by 2019?
- Which conditions and issues will influence the development of railway construction most profoundly over the next six years?
- Which railway construction firms are among the top ten in Poland? How are they faring financially and what are their largest recent contracts?
Did you know...
- In order to use up the maximum amount of EU funding, Polish authorities have negotiated a higher subsidy threshold for individual projects and the possibility to reassign funds between projects.
- The upcoming programme Infrastructure and Environment presupposes the construction of six brand new sections of rails.
- The construction costs for new sections differ significantly, depending on their total length (fixed construction costs are distributed differently) and environmental conditions in which they are created. According to the plan, the most expensive enterprise is the further expansion of the railway interchange in Lodz. 1 km of the route, including also an underground tunnel, will cost over PLN 400m.
- Further expansion of the II line of the Warsaw underground is in progress. The line under construction is to be extended by 3 new stops towards Wola, and 3 in the direction of Targowek.
- There are currently 14 tram networks in Poland, provided by 16 enterprises. The fifteenth (in Olsztyn) is under construction.

Extract from this report
- Although railway is considered one of the most lacking branches of construction, the next two years should improve the results of construction and assembly production. According to the forecasts, the financial advancement of just the largest projects (over PLN 1bn) did not exceed 40% at the start of 2014. It means that the next two years, the last possible period in which EU funded projects can be implemented and settled, will need to bring considerable increase in production on construction sites, while new projects, funded from the new budget, will already be waiting their turn – consequently, the total of yearly production should reach a fairly high level.
- Plans relating to the next financial perspective ambitiously assume a high number of projects. Approximately 60% will be concerned with revitalising certain lines, which requires fewer formalities, but also appropriately lower outlays. The estimated value of such works for 1km of rails is PLN 4m – ten times less than the construction of a brand new section.
Market commentary by expert
The railway industry has been on the cusp of growth for a few years, but so far has not been able to put the plan into practice. Constant delays and practical problems have meant that the production on building sites remains far from expected. The industry has its back to the wall, which in this case is the date of 31 December 2015 – the deadline by which the investment within the EU financial perspective for 2007-2013 should be completed and settled. PKP is therefore going to implement this plan, and at the same time efficiently start projects from the new budget. A few dozen projects which are now in the preliminary preparation stage will have a positive impact on both the construction and assembly production charts, and most of all on the condition of railway infrastructure.
