Poland and Ukraine plan to start regular passenger trains between Lviv and Lublin, a major rail hub in eastern Poland.

Poland and Ukraine plan to start regular passenger trains between Lviv and Lublin, a major rail hub in eastern Poland. During the first half of this year, train passenger traffic between the two countries more than doubled year over year, hitting 187,000. The decision to create a dedicated train for the 220km route between the two cities was reached Wednesday at a meeting in Poland between the nations’ two infrastructure ministers, Andrzej Adamczyk for Poland and Volodymyr Omelyan for Ukraine. With cross-border traffic growing, the two ministers also agreed to restore a 15 km stretch of track running from Przemyśl, Poland to Nyzhankovychi, Lviv region. Coupled with a new road crossing, this rail link would spark economic activity in a neglected corner of Lviv’s southwest border region.
