Construction of a multimodal goods and fuel delivery hub with railway siding connection at Katowice Airport
Total value: EUR 20 180 758
Value of EU co-funding: up to 50% of the project’s value
The project covers the realisation of the following tasks:
- Construction of a railway siding connecting Katowice Airport with the Central Railway Main Line via railway line No. 182 (Tarnowskie Góry - Zawiercie)
- Construction of an unloading railway front for loading and unloading of goods and fuel.
The aim of the project is to create a multimodal transport hub with delivery and accompanying infrastructure, which will allow to transport goods (including aviation fuel) and supply aircraft operating at Katowice Airport with fuel. The new infrastructure will result in reduction of road transportation in favour of rail, thus supporting the development of a sustainable transport system. The multimodal goods and fuel delivery hub will be prepared to handle alternative fuels to improve energy efficiency and reduce climate emissions.
The new infrastructure will be adjusted for civil-military dual use purposes, thus allowing to secure deliveries and continuity of operations during on-going military operations. The project has an interoperable nature, meaning that the new infrastructure will be intended for use by all interested entities using the airport's services, both civilian and military, as well as entities doing business in the region.
The project is realised as part of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) 2021-2027 Military Mobility.
