A metro connection from Łódź Fabryczna to Łódź Kaliska will be available to commuters latest by 2023. Following years of planning and discussions, Łódź city council confirmed that it will go ahead with the plans. The tender for the construction will be published in January 2017.
Initially, the city planned a tunnel between the two railway stations without stops, however, following suggestions by Łódź residents, the decision was made that two stops will be available to commuters, transforming the rail tunnel into a metro system. Between Łódź Fabryczna and Łódź Kaliska the trains will stop at Manufaktura and Zielona.
The tender for the construction will be released in January 2017. Construction works are planned to commence in 2018 and will last approx. 5 years.
