The funds will come after the European Commission adopted three major Cohesion Policy projects that are designed to improve passenger safety while reducing travel time and costs.

Over EUR 487 million will be allocated to modernise Poland’s railway communication system, the EU’s executive announced at the end of last week.

It said EU-funded work would include replacing outdated technology and setting up a modern communication system along almost 14,000 km of railways throughout the country.

The aim is to make rail transport in Poland more cost-efficient and faster, the European Commission said.

A further EUR 117 million will go toward upgrading railway services in Poland’s southern Silesia region, the EU executive said.

Finally, almost EUR 72 million will be spent to ease road traffic congestion in Poland's northern Warmińsko-Mazurskie province by building an expressway bypass east of the town of Nowe Miasto Lubawskie.

Poland is the biggest beneficiary of the EU's Cohesion Policy funds.

Since the country joined the bloc in 2004, it has seen Cohesion Policy finance 12,200 km of new or upgraded roads, access to broadband internet for 9.1 million people and the creation of 151,000 jobs, according to the European Commission.
