Tasks are being carried out to rebuild the track systems and infrastructure on the E59 railway line (LK 351) from Choszczno to Stargard. Works are being conducted on the main double-track railway line no. 351, from km 140.250 to km 171.120, in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship, in the districts of Choszczno and Stargard.
The task includes the demolition of the existing track surface, sub-track works, construction of a new track surface with a total length of approx. 42.250 km of single track (contactless track, 60E1 rails on prestressed concrete sleepers PS94 with SB fastening), stabilization of the newly laid track by packing with a tamper, adjustment of the new track in plan and profile, and cleaning of the ballast using a cleaner. Additionally, two railway stations: Dolice and Kolin, and 4 stops: Ziemomyśl, Morzyca, Strzebielewo, and Witkowo are being reconstructed, and new turnouts are also being installed. The scope of the task also includes dismantling existing platforms and constructing 11 new one-sided platforms and 1 two-sided platform along with minor architecture, adapting them to the needs of people with reduced mobility. Moreover, modernization of 9 level crossings, replacement of road surfaces on access roads, upgrades and construction of 19 railway bridges and viaducts, as well as 25 culverts, comprehensive drainage of platforms, track systems, and road systems are being carried out.
The implementation of the task aims to ensure increased travel comfort for passenger trains, reduce travel time (increasing the maximum speed for passenger trains to 160 km/h), increase the competitiveness of railways compared to road transport, increase safety at level railway crossings, and eliminate barriers for people with limited mobility.
