Difficulties on Dobrego Pasterza Street

This coming Monday, September 4, residents of Kraków will face temporary difficulties in crossing Dobrego Pasterza Street. Preparatory work will be carried out in connection with the construction of the Tramway to Mistrzejowice.

On September 4, from 9:00 am, a temporary narrowing of the roadway on Dobrego Pasterza Street (at the level of the Swing Hotel) will be introduced.

The obstructions will only be in effect for a few hours. Pedestrian traffic will be controlled by properly trained and authorized staff of the contractor.  Upon completion of the work, the traffic routes will be restored to their full widths.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Location of stops on the route to Mistrzejowice

Although the construction of the tramway route to Mistrzejowice has only just begun, and its completion is scheduled for the end of 2025, from the perspective of public transport passengers the most important and most frequently asked question is: where will the new tramway stops be located? We bring you the answers.

The project area includes not only dense residential development, but also areas that generate a lot of traffic: office zones, shopping centers, a cinema or a water park. Therefore, the locations of the bus stops have been designed to provide residents with the widest possible access to these places.

The project involves the construction of new and redevelopment of existing tram stops. Here are their locations:

  • at the intersection of Jana Pawła II Avenue and Meissnera Street,
  • in the area of Ugorek Street,
  • in the area of the intersections with Mieczyslawa Pszona and Kazimierza Chałupnika Streets,
  • in the area of Młyńskie Roundabout (underground stop),
  • in the area of Polsadu Roundabout (underground stop),
  • in the area of Barei Roundabout, on Dobrego Pasterza Street,
  • on Dobrego Pasterza Street in the area of Krzesławicka Street,
  • on Bohomolca Street in the area of Kniaźnina Street,
  • on Jancarza Street in the area of Oświecenia Housing Estate,
  • on the redeveloped Mistrzejowice terminus.

Each stop will have a shelter to protect it from the sun and rain. In addition, where technically possible, new plantings have been designed on tram and bus platforms. Thanks to the use of a special anti-compression system, the roots of the common maple ‘Globosum’ will have free space to grow under the sidewalk and roadway.

Underground stops near Młyńskie Roundabout and Polsadu Roundabout will be accessible by traditional stairs, elevators and escalators. Underground areas will feature ramps and boarding areas adapted for the disabled [more information].

The first month of work has passed

A month has already passed since the start of construction of the Tramway to Mistrzejowice. During this time, the focus was on preparing the site for the redevelopment of the underground infrastructure and for the construction of the tracks.

Our first task was to properly prepare the site. We started the work by removing conflicting elements. This involved demolishing several commercial premises and cutting down trees. We also began work on rebuilding the water mains on the southeast side of the Polsadu Roundabout and demolished the earthen embankment at Krzesławicka Street – says Krzysztof Dziobek, Contract Director from Gülermak. – As we are getting closer to the core works, we have also started the process of inventorying buildings in the close vicinity of the investment – he adds.

Residents who are interested in having their buildings inventoried still have the opportunity to register. You can find more information on this topic HERE

Below is a short video documenting the first month of work:
