Today, a demolishment of the overpass at Szewczyka Sq. was started. It is the first stage of works coming before the development of new Railway Station and Galeria Katowicka.
Vehicles traffic is still possible along the main Railway building on Dworcowa St. in both directions. „The new traffic organization in the City Center was designed to minimize the inconveniences arising from the construction works. Following streets will be closing step by step and several crossroads will be broadened and modernized. The demolishment is scheduled for finishing in late January 2011. Then, the Strabag prime contractor will take over the construction site” – said Rafał Elżanowski, Investment Manager at Neinver Poland.
During the present stage of works, the “Katowice” neon will be taken down. Neinver plans to renovate it and the neon will appear again at the building of new Railway Station.
The company of Trans-Ziem is responsible for the demolishment works.
