It’s been confirmed that the city of Łódź will have its own Metro system latest by the year 2022. Labelled as “Small Łódź Metro”, the tunnel will connect the new Łódź Fabryczna and existing Łódź Kaliska railway stations.
The underground connection between the two stations earned its new nickname due to the fact that it will not only connect Łódź Fabryczna and Łódź Kaliska railway stations, but will also have two intermediate stops, allowing passengers to get on and off the trains in the center of the city, creating a metro like public transport system.
The plan to add two intermediate stops derived from consultation session with Łódź residents and will be build close to the Manufaktura shopping & entertainment center and at the intersection of Zielona and Zachodnią.
The investment is expected to cost 2 billion PLN and is to be completed latest by 2022.
