On Sunday, December 11, 2016, the first train pulled into the new Łódź Fabryczna railway station, symbolically opening it to the public and travelers. It’s the most extensive investment of its type in Poland. After its reconstruction, it’s the third largest and one of the most modern railway stations in Europe.
The station’s construction took five years and cost 1.75 billion PLN. We provided lighting fixtures for the investment. We equipped the station with the LED linear system 6000, which subtly highlights communication routes. In addition, Cosmo and Racer luminaires were installed. Especially for the purposes of this investment, we also used products from the Lighting Flowers family in pendant and pole-mounted versions. The lighting arrangement emphasizes the modern and multifunctional character of the space.
The train station has three levels, and the railway platforms are located 16 meters underground. Still, they can be reached by sunlight, thanks to glass panels specially mounted on the roof. The entire investment combines railway, bus and car transport. The facility can handle up to 150 trains per day.
