The capacity of the Małaszewicze Cargo Terminal infrastructure to be increased up to the expected throughput capacity for trains received for the transshipment of goods and dispatch by rail to East and West.
In order to increase the throughput capacity of the Małaszewicze Cargo Terminal, it is necessary to modernise and expand 1435 mm and 1520 mm rail arrangements, as well as to develop modern rail traffic control systems.
Optimised arrangement of rails, ensuring increased throughput capacity of rail systems and access tracks, as well as facilitated shunting at terminals
Currently, a feasibility study is being prepared, to include financial, economic and technical analyses. The feasibility study will be prepared in 4 variants, with a recommendation and a building permit design.
The “Connecting Europe” financing instrument has been devised to implement the European policy in the field of transport infrastructure. Its purpose is to support the development of a new transport infrastructure in Europe and the modernisation of the existing infrastructure.
Project 2015-PL-TM-0037-S „Modernization of railway infrastructure at the Małaszewicze Transloading Zone forming part of the Rail Freight Corridor no. 8, at the border between the EU and Belarus – studies” is co-financed by the European Union from the Cohesion Fund under the Connecting Europe CEF facility.
The project net value is: € 3,813,064, of which qualified funds amount to € 3,241,104 – a 85% financing rate.
„- It is our priority project for the nearest years. A project we have great hopes for – says Mr Jacek Rutkowski, CEO at CARGOTOR, the infrastructure administrator in the PKP CARGO Group. – The Małaszewicze Cargo Terminal is a key hub on the logistic map of Europe, especially recently, when the New Silk Road project has moved from the planning phase to actual implementation, its development dynamics being extremely high. Modernisation is a necessity, so as to make the duration of rail transport from and to Asia attractive – adds CARGOTOR CEO.”
The Małaszewicze Cargo Terminal will undergo a major modernisation. Its administrator is planning to redevelop the cargo handling stations and to upgrade the infrastructure to modern standards. CARGOTOR – the PKP CARGO Group member and the French Systra group signed a contract for a feasibility study and a building design.
