Extension of the Intercity+ high-speed train’s Kyiv-Lviv route to Przemysl (Poland) has been proposed during a joint meeting of the Ukrainian parliament’s transport committee and the Polish parliament’s infrastructure commission.
According to the chairman of the Ukrainian parliament’s transport committee, Yaroslav Dubnevych, all the technical capability for this exists, the CFTS portal reports.
"It is necessary to quickly restore daily high-speed rail link between Lviv and Przemysl. We proposed extending the Intercity+ high-speed train’s Kyiv-Lviv route to Przemysl. All the technical capability for this exists and only bureaucratic procedures need to be overcome,” Dubnevych wrote on Facebook. “I am convinced that a high-quality network of roads, communications, and rail links should facilitate direct contacts between Ukrainians and Poles."
It is time to move from declarations to implementation of joint projects, he added.
As reported, after a meeting between the head of the Lublin region of Poland, Slawomir Sosnowski, and the leadership of the Lviv region of Ukraine a few days ago, it was announced that the Poles intended to upgrade the Lublin-Zamosc railway stretch and that they saw prospects for extension of this railway line to Lviv.
As the CFTS portal reported, Ukraine’s Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelian announced during a visit to Uzhhorod last week that work was underway on a project to link the Zakarpattia region of Ukraine with Hungary via a European-gauge railway.
