The Infrastructure Ministry of Ukraine jointly with the Infrastructure Ministry of Poland are working on restoration of two train services in 2019, Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan said at a press conference in Kyiv.
“Together with our Polish colleagues, we are working on the restoration of railway services on the Przemyśl-Malhowice-Nyzhankovychi (Lviv region) line, as well as for Lublin-Lviv. I am sure that these lines have the future,” he said.
Omelyan said that the initiative to resume the railway services between Ukraine and Poland came from Infrastructure Minister of Poland Andrzej Adamczyk.
“We agreed that in December Ukrzaliznytsia and the Polish railway will finally agree on the launch format of these lines, and closer to the New Year we will be able to announce the terms for their implementation,” the Ukrainian minister said.
Omelyan also reported that today the decision was made to launch a container train between China and Europe, namely between China and Poland, on the territory of Ukraine.
“We plan that the number of such trains will be about 1,000 a year,” he said.
