Suspension of the tram traffic between Katowice and Chorzów
Till the 11th of December the tram traffic along Chorzowska street in Katowice will be stopped. Intensive track works, connected with the investment projects carried out to the order of Tramwaje Śląskie S.A., will be carried out during this period.
For the duration of works the section between the Gen. Ziętek roundabout in Katowice and the western terminus at the Silesian Stadium in Chorzów will be entirely closed for the tram traffic. During three weeks new timetables will be effective for a few tram lines, operating on shortened routes, while lines 0, 23, and 43 will be suspended. A new timetable for tramway line 46 will be introduced, assuming an increased frequency of line operation (every 5-10 minutes). This line will take over transport tasks of lines 6 and 11 in the section between Brynów Centrum Przesiadkowe and Katowice Rondo.
A new timetable of bus line 830 will be introduced on working days, assuming an increased frequency of journeys and starting the service of Chorzów AKS stop. In addition, the line will be also operating on Saturdays. Moreover, bus line M3 will start serving the Chorzów AKS stop.
To ensure mutual transfer connections, substitute bus transport line T-6 will be started, operating between Katowice Rynek and Chorzów Stadion Śląski at a frequency of 7 - 8 minutes.
Detailed description of changes is provided in our message.
From the 5th of December the POP in Gliwice will be situated in the newly opened Transfer Centre. Passengers will be capable of handling their matters and transfer to the selected means of transport in one place.
On the 3rd of December, in relation to the commissioning of the Transfer Centre in Gliwice, the operation of approx. 50 bus lines will change within the city area. The Metropolitan Transport Authority (ZTM) emphasises, that these lines also include such, which routes go outside Gliwice and due to that also residents of e.g. Knurów, Pyskowice, and Zabrze should learn about the modifications. To facilitate the use of urban transport for passengers from these cities, the transport organiser has prepared now additional information materials.
