The planned new construction of the underground railway system includes the central section of the new Line 2 running from east to west and crossing the existing Line 1 (north-south). The 2-track electrified line runs through two separate tunnels which also pass under the river Vistula.

A shield type tunnel boring machine is used and the cut and cover method is employed for the stations. The new construction is tendered as a "design and build" contract, including for instance shell construction and finishing, technical railway equipment and transport infrastructure. Basically, it comprises all disciplines, except the rolling stock.

In the project, Pöyry provided planning and consulting services for the client.
