The Polish capital of Warsaw has received 1.83 billion Polish zloty (€ 430 million) in EU funding to expand its metro system.

The funding is part of a grant agreement worth more than 3.16 billion zloty (€ 737 million), signed by representatives of the city and Poland’s Centre for EU Transport Projects, the country’s implementing body for EU funds, late last month.

The city will allocate the money for the metro expansion on the construction of a 6 km line with six new metro stations, and the purchase of new trains.
