How that develop infrastructure in Poland?
A new tram route to Franowo was officially opened in Poznań today, August 11, 2012. The new tram route has a length of 2.5 km. Much of it - 1070 meters - is in three tunnels, the longest of which is 366 meters long and connects the stops Piaśnicka / Market and Piaśnicka / Kurlandzka. For this reason it is jocularly dubbed "the Poznan's subway". About 270 million zlotys was invested in the project, 40% provided by EU.
The route to Franowo was supposed to be ready for Euro 2012. However, the official opening was postponed pending inspections from the Firefighter Department and the County Building Inspector. The consents were finally obtained on July 27 and the Municipal Transport Company (MPK) started training tram drivers for the underground driving.

BTW, did you noticed the Polish word "Budownictwo", not "Developers" in the name of the company? How refreshing for a change. :-)
