The construction of the new station in Rogów took nearly two years and was carried out in the "Design and Build" mode under the Innovative System Station formula as part of the 2016-2023 Station Investment Program with the European Union funding from the Operational Program Infrastructure and Environment. Modern, comfortable and environmentally friendly, it opened for travellers on August, 4.

The investment in Rogów resulted in the typical modular IDS construction, in which several modern and comfort-enhancing solutions for travellers were implemented. It replaced the existing station building, which was demolished at the beginning of the investment. The new station in Rogow has a modern, minimalist, and functional architectural form. It consists of two parts. The first houses the travellers' service area, a lobby that also serves as a waiting room. It was decorated following modern architecture trends in light colours, with ample access to daylight, entering the interior through large-format glass display windows. The waiting room is equipped with benches, display cases, electronic boards for train arrivals and departures, a voice information system and a clock. It is also fully air-conditioned. Toilets are located adjacent to it, while the other part houses a rental unit. Bicycle racks have also been located under the canopy, along with a single-track repair station. The architectural dominant in the body of the new station is an 8-meter clock tower. The façade is covered with colourful HPL panels (strips), which look like wooden planks. It refers to the Rogów Arboretum, a dendrological park with unique species of trees and shrubs on a European scale.

"Thanks to the investment in Rogów with European and national funds, passenger comfort and safety have increased significantly. Transport accessibility is vital, especially in places where the ability to use efficient transportation determines good work and development of local communities," says Grzegorz Puda, Minister of Funds and Regional Policy. "The facility, at the same time, responds to modern ecological challenges and was designed with all passengers in mind, including those with disabilities," he adds.

"Modern and functional infrastructure is key to ensuring the comfort and safety of rail passengers. I am pleased that today another step on this path has been achieved with the opening of the new Rogów station. It is an innovative facility that meets modern traveller service standards and is accessible and environmentally friendly. I am confident it will serve the residents and tourists visiting Rogów well," said Maciej Małecki, Secretary of State at the Ministry of State Assets.

"The opening of the station in Rogów is another element of the great modernization of the Polish railroad. Residents of yet another village in the Lodz Voivodeship will thus gain access to safe and comfortable railroad infrastructure. I hope that the building, completed under the Innovative System Station formula, will become Rogów's showpiece and make it easier for passengers to travel by rail. All of this is thanks to the Station Investment Program, under which the Polish government will allocate more than PLN 2 billion for the modernization of nearly 200 railway stations by 2023," says Andrzej Bittel, secretary of state at the Ministry of Infrastructure.

"Rogów is the third station we have recently opened in the Lodz province, after Gorzkowice and Wilkoszewice. It is a modern, comfortable, accessible and environmentally friendly facility, so I am confident it will serve travellers well. An interesting accent of this modern facility is the reference, through the colours of the facade, to the Arboretum, located in Rogów," says Ireneusz Maślany, member of the board of PKP S.A.

However, the new station in Rogów is not only modern and functional architecture with local accents. The building is free of architectural barriers and has been equipped with many facilities for people with disabilities. Among them are guided paths for the blind and visually impaired in the building and its surroundings, signage in Braille, a contrasting colour scheme for the station's interiors, and tactile boards with the facility plan.

Several environmentally friendly solutions have also been implemented at the station. The building has been equipped with a BMS (Building Management System) that monitors the work of installations and equipment to optimize utility consumption. Energy-efficient lighting with control automation was also installed in the building, while twelve photovoltaic panels were installed on its roof to obtain "green energy." To improve security in the station building, modern security systems were installed: monitoring, access control and burglary and assault signalling, as well as fire alarms. Parking spaces for people with disabilities, as well as for families with children, have been marked out near the station. Greenery has also been put in order.

The construction of the new station in Rogów is part of the Station Investment Program for 2016-2023. The investment cost is about PLN 4.4 million net (about PLN 5.4 million gross). The investor is Polskie Koleje Państwowe S.A., and the contractor is a consortium of Heli-Factor Sp. z o.o. and Merx Sp. z o.o.
