The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has extended a loan of €80.6m to Warsaw metro line in Poland to buy 35 energy-efficient metro trains consisting of 210 individual wagons.

The new trains will run on Warsaw’s existing metro line as well as on a second line, which is currently under construction. The project will reduce traffic congestion and provide an efficient transport link from the east side of the Vistula River to the west side of the city.

The project aims to shift the public away from using motorised transport (private cars and buses) to zero-emission public transport in a bid to cut CO2 emissions.
The new metro trains, which are to be supplied by a consortium of Siemens and Newag, will require less frequent maintenance reviews than the existing trains.
