Tram line connecting Lema / Meissnera intersection with Mistrzejowice tram loop will be constructed as part of the IV stage of the extension of the Krakow Fast Tram. Thanks to this approx. 4.5-kilometre connection, travel time to the city center will be shortened by approx. 12 minutes.
Trams on this route will be able to run as early as in 2025, with a frequency of up to 90 seconds. The new route will run along: Meissnera, Młyńska, Lublańska, Dobrego Pasterza, Bohomolca Jancarza Streets. It includes multi-level interchange station in the area of Polsadu roundabout. The value of the project is PLN 1.92 billion (including capital expenditures of approx. PLN 616 million net).
The construction of the streetcar to Mistrzejowice is the first transport project in Poland implemented in a public-private partnership model. The agreement concluded with the private partner for a period of 24 years assumes that he will be responsible not only for the design and implementation of the investment but also its subsequent maintenance.
The European Investment Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Bank Pekao SA and the Polish Development Fund have agreed to co-finance the investment.
