Olsztyn Główny station in Poland is currently undergoing significant modernization with an investment of around PLN 400 million from PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. and EU funds from the Eastern Poland Operational Programme.

As part of the renovation, a new platform is being constructed to provide improved comfort for passengers. In addition, the installation of historic shelter elements has started, with cleaned steel pillars being fixed to the ground to support a wooden shelter for travellers.

The subway on Maria Zientara-Malewska Street is being reconstructed to improve accessibility for people with reduced mobility. Four concrete segments have been created, extending the tunnel to a total length of approximately 46 meters. Upon completion, the tunnel will be 140 meters long, wider, and higher, offering comfortable access for residents of Olsztyn's Zatorze district.

The modernization project aims to streamline train traffic, increase passenger comfort, and enhance accessibility for people with disabilities. The investment includes new tracks, overhead catenary, and rail traffic control system cabling. Once completed in 2024, the reconstructed Olsztyn Główny station will provide passengers with better access to platforms through lifts and escalators, guidance paths, and Braille signs for visually impaired individuals. Improved information will also be available through displays and a new sound system.
