CARGOTOR (from the PKP Cargo group), the railway infrastructure manager who also operates in Małaszewicze, has announced that it has applied for co-financing from CEF 2 as part of the Małaszewicze Logistics Park construction project.

This investment is of strategic importance for the Polish economy and the further development of the New Silk Road.

CARGOTOR has this week applied to CINEA (European Executive Agency for Climate, Infrastructure, and Environment) for funding under the CEF Transport 2021 competition for an investment entitled Modernisation of railway infrastructure in the Małaszewicze transshipment area on the EU-Belarus border.

The Małaszewicze Logistics Park is an infrastructure investment and will get fully financed from public funds, including co-financing from EU funds. The estimated cost of the asset is PLN 3.2 billion. Due to the cross-border nature of the project, CARGOTOR is applying for funding from CEF 2, which amounts to 50% of the target amount. Construction work gets scheduled to start in 2023.

The project includes a comprehensive modernization and extension of the railway infrastructure. The reconstruction of the line will enable the reception of trains with a length of 1050 m for 1520 mm gauge and 750 m for 1435 mm gauge. Train speeds will also get increased from 20 to 40 km/h.

All this is to contribute to the even greater importance of the Małaszewicze logistics park as one of the most crucial transshipment points in Europe

"The preparatory work for modernizing the railway infrastructure in Małaszewicze has been completed. It is a milestone and an important event. CARGOTOR, the company implementing the project, is applying for an EU subsidy for the construction work. We are committed to this investment because Poland should benefit from its unique geopolitical location,'' said Andrzej Bittel, Poland's Deputy Minister of Infrastructure.
