„The contract for modernising railway line LK 207 is the second railway contract, following LK 351, acquired in the 1st quarter of 2020. Both sections are of strategic importance for the transport of passengers and goods, therefore, being the contractor, we feel even greater satisfaction. Successful acquisitions also confirm our strong position on the Polish railway market, which is one of our goals for this and the next years”, said Mr. Siegfried Weindok, member of PORR S.A.’s management board and head of the railway construction section.
