The investment project carried out by PRK constituted an important part of a major project including redevelopment of the PKP Railway Station, including a new building, underground city transport facility, Galeria Katowicka shopping mall and an underground car park for 1200 vehicles. The scale of the project made the upgrading of the Station one of the largest investments of this type in Central Europe. Its fulfilment completely changed the face of Katowice and life of its residents within just few consecutive years. Katowice Railway Station is one of the largest in Poland. Ca. 400 trains and 9 million people are handled here.
The purpose of the railway station infrastructure upgrading was to improve passenger safety and enhance train traffic at the station. As a result of the works, Katowice Station became the fourth in Poland fully covered platform hall. Panels of the modern roofing are supported on a high structure and provide protection to the passengers against adverse weather conditions and at the same time guarantee the transparent elements made of polycarbonates.
