The scope of the project includes as many as 26 infrastructure projects (including 2 related to the construction of a new track and 24 related to the reconstruction of the existing infrastructure - a total of over 40 km of tram lines), as well as the purchase of 45 new low-floor tram rolling stock. The project will be implemented in 10 cities: B?dzin, Bytom, Chorzw, D?browa Grnicza, Katowice, Mys?owice, Ruda ?l?ska, Sosnowiec, ?wi?toch?owice and Zabrze. New sections of the tram network will be built in Sosnowiec on the section from the tram terminus to the roundabout of John Paul II in the Zagrze district (over 3 km of the double track) and in Katowice along ul. Grundmann (almost 700 m double track). The remaining scope of the project includes the modernization of the existing tram infrastructure in these cities.

This project is the first part of the projects provided by Tramwaje ?l?skie SA. Steps II and III - covering the construction and modernization of subsequent sections of the tram network - will also be implemented under measure 6.1 OPI & E. Thanks to these investments, collective communication will be more attractive, it will also cover new areas of the Agglomeration, the travel time between stops will be shortened, and the safety and comfort of travelers will be improved.

The total value of the project is PLN 766,78 million , and the EU funding amounts to PLN 399.33 million . The investment will be implemented in 2017-2020.

Protection against floods in the K?odzko Basin, with particular emphasis on the protection of the City of K?odzko

The project is already implemented. It will improve the flood protection of residents and infrastructure located in the K?odzko Basin, because it will reduce flood flows. The beneficiary of the project is the State Water Farm of Polish Waters (and on its behalf, the Regional Water Management Authority in Wroc?aw). The investment is part of a larger project - "Flood Protection Project in the Odra and Vistula basin." The project is being carried out in 2017-2021.

The project received PLN 317 million EU funding.

Water supply and wastewater treatment Warsaw (phase VI)

The project's goal is, among others optimization and streamlining of the currently functioning water and sewage management system by increasing residents' access to services in the field of water supply and sewage collection as a result of the expansion of the water supply and sewage networks, improvement of the sewage network and prevention of wastewater exfiltration to the environment and infiltration of groundwater to the sewerage system. The plans are to expand the sanitary sewage system (over 30 km), to which more than 5,700 new users will be connected. However, as a result of the construction of approximately 23 km of water supply network connected to the network, there will be approx. 6,720 people. In addition, modernization of the Water Treatment Station will be carried out and further modernization works at the "Czajka" and "Po?udnie" sewage treatment plants.

The project is a continuation of activities carried out by MPWiK Warszawa within the framework of previous phases IV conducted since 2000 under the ISPA / Cohesion Fund, OPI & E 2007-2013 and OPI & E 2014-2020 programs. The Phase V and VI Phases implemented under OPI & E 2014-2020 are financially and technically independent and independently functioning.

The total value of the project is PLN 1.23 billion , and the value of financing is PLN 637.5 million. The project will be implemented in the period of June 1, 2014 - December 31, 2023. The project's beneficiary is Miejskie Przedsi?biorstwo Wodoci?gw i Kanalizacji in the capital city of Warsaw Joint Stock Company.

Strachocina-Pogrska Wola gas pipeline

The Strachocina - Pogrska Wola gas pipeline will be located in the area of ??the Ma?opolskie and Podkarpackie voivodeships and is part of the so-called The North-South gas corridor. The implementation of the project will contribute to additional capacity of gas transport from directions other than the East, thanks to the possibility of gas transmission from the LNG terminal to central, southern and south-western Poland, and also due to the possibility of using the newly emerging Poland-Slovakia interconnector for gas transmission from interconnector Poland - Slovakia towards central and southern Poland.

Estimated project completion date is the end of 2020.
