The modernisation programme was announced on Thursday by Infrastructure Minister Andrzej Adamczyk and Krzysztof Mamiński, CEO of Poland’s state-owned railway company PKP.
Mamiński said that after the revamp, rail stations would be more passenger-friendly, ticket offices would be more accessible while waiting rooms would offer more space.
Adamczyk said: "Due to the dynamic development of many urban centres, railways are playing an increasingly important role in transport services in metropolitan areas.”
The modernisation programme will run until 2023.
