Innovative System Railway Station in Dobczyn opened to travellers


Travellers can now use the modern railway station in Dobczyn on the Warsaw East-Bialystok-Kuźnica Białostocka line. This is a typical Innovative System Railway Station, the construction of which was co-financed with European funds from the Infrastructure and Environment programme.

“The opening of the modern railway station in Dobczyna is one of 12 railway station investments implemented with European funding amounting to nearly PLN 30 million, i.e. 70% of the investment value. Thanks to the modernisation, travellers on this route will be able to use an infrastructure that is not only modern, energy-efficient, and accessible to all, but also aesthetically pleasing and comfortable”, said Angela Martinez-Sarasola, Head of the Polish Department of the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy. 

According to the EU official, Cohesion Policy is an expression of solidarity with every citizen of the European Union regardless of where they live, and the completed railway station is an example of this initiative. 

The station in Dobczyn is fully accessible for people with disabilities. Among other things, there is Braille signage, pathways for the blind and visually impaired, tactile maps and toilets adapted to the needs of people with disabilities.

The waiting room is equipped with benches, display cabinets, electronic train arrival and departure boards, a voice information system and a clock. It is also fully air-conditioned. There are bicycle racks under the canopy, along with a repair station for bicycles.

The building is environmentally friendly and safe. It has 12 photovoltaic panels on its roof. A heat pump is used to heat and cool the building. The station is illuminated using energy-efficient LED technology and equipped with an intelligent building management system, which controls the operation of equipment and installations and optimises electricity, heat, and water consumption.
