Integrated Transport Centre in Olsztyn: works are speeding up

On Wednesday, 27 June 2012, councillors of the city of Olsztyn will vote on accepting the new spatial development plan for the surroundings of the railway station. If a positive decision in this matter is taken before summer holidays, the investor – the company Retail Provider – will start the construction of the New Railway Station in Olsztyn in the first half of 2013, and the works will be integrated with a planned tramway route.

According to the Gazeta Wyborcza Olsztyn newspaper, city-planners from the town hall will start working on the spatial development plan which will enable destroying the current railway station building. Officials from the city hall admit that such a document will allow destroying the current building of the railway and constructing a completely new building as well as creating an adjoining shopping centre. Moreover, there is a possibility of opening an integrated transport hub in the area of the railway station. The new plan should also provide a possibility of connecting the Śródmieście and Zatorze districts and define its principles.

The project of the Integrated Transport Centre in Olsztyn involves creation of a shopping centre with a lettable area of 45,000 sqm, adjoining the two modern stations: bus and railway ones, based on the facilities that are currently being realised in Katowice and Poznan. The investment is complemented by the “Siódemka dla Olsztyna” (Seven for Olsztyn) package which consist of: a Central Transfer Hub; extension of an underground passage going under rails in the direction of Zatorze; construction of a town square together with necessary optimisation of road and transport network, a new PKP railway station, a new PKS bus terminal as well as communal housing for the inhabitants of Olsztyn and a Green Project Olsztyn.
