Wrocław’s public transport body have announced plans to repair 6.5 kilometres of tracks as well as some traction polls and tram loops.
The badly needed repairs come after a nightmare year marred by continual derailments. The problems even spawned a parody calendar produced by the Facebook Page ‘Is MPK Wrocław f*cked today?’
In order to try and deal with the problem, MPK have set up a new department dedicated to track maintenance. They will also spend 80 million złoty per year for the next 3-4 years to improve infrastructure in the city’s existing tram network. On top of that, an independent audit will be carried out to identify which track segments should be repaired in the future.
Before the end of 2020, MPK will renovate 6.5 km of tracks and replace 15 switches. Among the areas set to be repaired is the junction at pl. Dominikański. Tracks on Żmigrodzka, Hallera and pl. Strzegomski will be renovated too, as will the the tram loops in Biskupin and Karłowice.
