Thirty days before the launch of regular operation of the Pendolino high-speed trains in Poland, some of the rail tracks for it have not yet been completed. The Warsaw-Katowice and Warsaw-Gdansk railway lines are still construction sites, the Polish media write. In forums, Polish railway workers are pessimistic about the actual state of affairs.
The routes of the Alstom-made super trains may look like this: travel on the only track that is ready, speed limits, and resumption of construction work in the second half of December.
The train must travel on one track for a quarter of the distance from Warsaw to Katowice because the construction of the second track has not yet been completed.
The real state of the infrastructure can be seen in a video recorded from the cabin of a Pendolino train’s driver.
