CPK Included In EU’s Trans-European Transport Network

The European Parliament Transport Committee has put Poland’s Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (or Solidarity Transport Hub) on the list of EU’s strategic investments. The new CPK airport with its roads and railways node is included in the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) together with 38 other Polish airports, maritime ports and rail/road terminals. TEN-T is the EU’s programme combining the main road, railway, aquatic and air routes, as well as intelligent systems intended to improve transport capacity, safety and environmental protection. The Transport Committee has submitted its proposal of a regulation on TEN-T to the European Parliament for voting. 
Polish CPK airport to be constructed 37 km west of Warsaw will be the greatest CEE transfer hub integrating air, rail and road transport to the largest Polish cities in less than 2.5 hours and also to other major locations across CEE. In the first phase the airport can serve 40 million passengers per year with two runways operational in 2028. The project is expected to cost about € 8 billion and employ over 150,000 people. Its strategic investor is Vinci Airports and IFM Global Infrastructure Fund, and the Master Architect is Foster Partners and Buro Happold. Construction of Warsaw-Łódź line will be funded by EU’s Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) at € 64 million.
