However, PKP Polskie Linie Kolejowe S.A. is in the process of auditing the architectural accessibility of the Head Office building and analysing the needs. Once the documentation is approved by the heritage conservator and a building permit is obtained, it will be possible to proceed with comprehensive implementation of the adopted solutions. Implementation of the adopted solutions is planned from 2023.
