Poland Update: WJ Groundwater establishes itself in Poland with the successful completion of the Lodz Fabryczna Station projectWJ Groundwater February 5, 2016
WJ Groundwater is celebrating the completion of a ‘key’ dewatering project at Lodz Fabryczna, Poland. The grand task took two years to reach completion and it has been instrumental in the establishment of our brand within east European markets. It has also provided us with a springboard to opening our first permanent office in Poland.
The new, three level railway terminal, Lodz Fabryczna is the new key communication hub for the redeveloped city-centre for Lodz. The whole enterprise is a part of a large regeneration scheme that is intended to contribute towards a revitalised local and national railway network. The new infrastructure will provide faster connections to the capital, Warsaw, and other large cities across Poland and Europe. The station is connected to the existing railway network via an underground tunnel running underneath the city centre. Both the station box and the tunnel were constructed using a top-down method and during the course of the excavation approximately 2 million m3 of earth has been removed.
