Travellers at Olsztyn Główny station can watch the progress of the works. A new platform is being built, providing greater comfort for passengers. The first historical elements of the shelter are being installed. The new tunnel will increase accessibility to the platforms. The PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A.'s investment of around PLN 400 million is being carried out with EU funds from POPW.

On platform 4 of the Olsztyn Główny station, the installation of the first elements of the historic shelters has begun. The cleaned steel pillars, painted following the guidelines of the conservation officer, are being fixed to the ground. A wooden shelter will be rebuilt on top of them. The canopy will protect travellers from the sun and rain. The modernised platform 4 will be used by travellers in the first quarter of this year.

The subway on the side of Maria Zientara-Malewska Street is being rebuilt. Four concrete segments of the structure with a total length of approximately 46 metres have been created. Ultimately, the tunnel will be 140 metres long, wider and higher. Thanks to the investment by PLK SA, the residents of Olsztyn's Zatorze district will gain comfortable access adapted to the needs of people with reduced mobility.

The investment by PKP Polskie Linii Kolejowe S.A. in Olsztyn will streamline train traffic and increase passenger comfort in the region's capital. Work is currently underway at the eastern exit of the station towards, among others, Barczewo and Korsz, where the track and catenary network are being added. The station has already installed ca. 15 km of new track, 6,000 metres of overhead catenary, and 8,000 metres of cabling for the rail traffic control system have already been installed at the station. Fifty-two laid turnouts will ensure the smooth passage of trains.

Dozens of machines are at work on the site, e.g., excavators, cranes, piling machines, rollers, tampers for adjusting the tracks and turnouts, and a network train. Despite the intensive work and the wide frontage of work, at Olsztyn Główny station, travellers can access the trains. Signs and boards provide information on the access route.

The modernisation of Olsztyn Główny station will provide travellers with the anticipated service comfort. People with reduced mobility will gain better access to the platforms facilitated by lifts and escalators. Guidance paths and Braille signs will provide good orientation at the station for people who are blind or have low vision. Better information for travellers will be provided by displays and a new sound system.

The investment by PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A., worth around PLN 400 million, is being carried out with EU funds from the Eastern Poland Operational Programme. The reconstruction of Olsztyn Główny station is scheduled to be completed in 2024.
