Centralny Port Komunikacyjny (Solidarity Transport Hub) to be commissioned in 2027
Solidarity Transport Hub Poland is a planned transfer hub between Warsaw and Łódź, which will integrate air, rail and road transport. The development envisages the construction of Solidarity Airport located 37 km west of Warsaw and covering the space of 3,000 ha. During the first stage, the airport will handle 45 million passengers a year.
STH will include railway investments: railway nod in the airport’s close vicinity as well as connections within Poland enabling transfer between Warsaw and the largest Polish cities in less than 2.5 hours. The investment should provide employment for over 150,000 people. Airport City will be created within the STH’s region including fair, congress and conference facilities as well as offices.
The construction cost is estimated at about PLN 35 billion. Along with the investment, roads are to be built (including the A10 motorway and the new railway connections mentioned above ). According to the plans, getting to CPK from the center of Warsaw would take … 15 minutes. This means that traveling to the new airport by high-speed rail would be faster for many people than reaching the Chopin airport.
