The company Metro Warszawskie has chosen the contractors for the next stations of the II metro line’s central section. The plans consist of three new stations in the direction of Bemowo and three stations in the direction of Targówek.
On Thursday, 29 October 2015, the management board of Metro Warszawskie, acting under the investment management agreement concluded with the Capital City of Warsaw, approved the protocol of the public procurement procedure concerning the extension of the II metro line central section and approved the choice of the most attractive offer.
The lowest bid for the western section (from the plain line beyond the station C09 “Rondo Daszyńskiego” to the side tracks behind the station C06) was made by a Turkish company Gülermak Ağir Sanayi İnşaat ve Taahhüt A.Ş. (of PLN 1,147,999,590.00 gross). For the eastern section (from the plain line beyond the station C15 “Dworzec Wileński to the side tracks behind the station C18 “Trocka”), the lowest bid was made by Astaldi S.p.A from Italy (of PLN 1,066,741,483.79 gross). The city had allotted PLN 3,174,757,654.32 gross for this investment, so the bids are lower than the amount defined in the budget. The choice was determined in 90% by the price and in 10% by the warranty period.
Tenderers now have 10 days for potential appeals, which will have to be examined by the National Chamber of Appeals within the next 14 days. Additionally, signing the agreement requires an ex-ante audit by the Public Procurement Office. The contractors will have 38 months to complete the construction from the day the agreement is signed.
For the time being, beyond the station Rondo Daszyńskiego, there are only side tracks and a turning loop where trains reverse direction. In Praga, likewise, the technical part of the underground construction reaches only the intersection of ul. Targowa and ul. 11 Listopada. It is from these two now-outermost stations that trains will in future run to Bemowo and Targówek.
To the west (from Rondo Daszyńskiego), the contractors will build around 3.4 km of the underground railway. The designed stations are: “Wolska” (C08) under ul. Płocka near the intersection with ul. Wolska; “Moczydło” (C07) under ul. Górczewska, to the east of the railway viaduct near ul. Sokołowska and ul. Syreny; and “Księcia Janusza” (C06) under ul. Górczewska near the intersection with ul. Księcia Janusza. Beyond the last station, there will be side tracks and a turning loop.
To the north-east (from Dworzec Wileński), there will be an extension of 3.12 km. The designed stations are: “Szwedzka” (C16) under ul. Strzelecka on the eastern side of ul. Stalowa; “Targówek” (C17) near the intersection of ul. Pratulińska and ul. S. Ossowskiego; and “Trocka” (C18) near the intersection of ul. Pratulińska and ul. Trocka. Again, beyond the last station, there will be side tracks and a turning loop. All of the above are just working station names, and their final versions will be defined by a resolution of the Warsaw City Council.
