Warsaw Metro provide, maintain, operate and supervise construction of metro services and infrastructure in Warsaw. The company acts as project manager on behalf of the city, from conception to post-completion assessment.
The metro network currently consists of two lines, the north–south Line M1 and the initial segment of the east-west Line M2, totalling 29km of track visiting 28 stations. In March 2016, the company awarded a €225 million contract to build the first phase of the North-East extension of Line M2, set to open in mid-2019. All planned extensions to Line 2 are set to add a further 26km incorporating 20 new stations. Warsaw Metro’s final plan is to have four lines of 100km of track visiting 58 stations, with Line M3 currently in the planning stage.
As CEO and President of the Board, Jerzy Lejk was responsible for the supervision and implementation of metro line 2 and the purchase of 35 new trains, as well as the ongoing extension of the underground system.
Mr Lejk will be a VIP guest at the 4th International Railway Summit and will take part in one-to-one consultation meetings with participating technology solution providers as well as in networking functions throughout the summit. International Railway Summit is an exclusive platform for rail sector leaders to get free bespoke consultation for their future projects based on a unique matchmaking service between buyers’ requirements and experts’ knowledge.
International Railway Summit is a meeting of senior executives representing the world’s key rail operators, rail infrastructure management companies, national and local governments, rolling stock manufacturers and a wide range of solution providers.
International Railway Summit provides a ‘matchmaking’ service between rail industry leaders (‘buyers’) and technical experts (‘suppliers’), based on buyer delegates’ project requirements and the proven expertise of large and small suppliers that we have carefully handpicked. Based on this matchmaking, buyer delegates attend one-to-one consultation sessions with suitable suppliers during the annual summit.
In addition to the one-to-one meetings, delegates also attend a conference programme given by key industry leaders and experts and network over lunches and dinners with their counterparts and industry colleagues from all over the world. International Railway Summit is co-hosted by International Railway Journal and IRITS Events and will take place on 15-17 February 2017 in Paris, France.
