President of the Central Communications Port dismissed from office

Mikołaj Wild was dismissed from the position of President of the Central Communication Port.

The website reports on this. Wild’s resignation is part of larger changes in the company that will oversee the construction of the airport in Baranów. On Wednesday, Maciej Lasek, the prime minister’s plenipotentiary for CPK, dismissed the company’s supervisory board.

The new board consisted of: Filip Czernicki (chairman), Andrzej Ilków (vice-chairman), Adam Sanocki and Magdalena Jaworska-Maćkowiak. For the time being, it is unknown who will replace Wild as president.

CPK is a Ministry of Finance company created to implement the multi-year Central Communication Port program, which concerns the construction of a new central airport for Poland and the coordination and implementation of accompanying investments, including the modernization of existing and construction of a new network of railway lines, highways, highways and other technical infrastructure.

What’s next for CPK?

The construction of the Central Communications Port is a flagship project of Law and Justice. However, after the October 15 elections and the change of government, the future was in doubt.

Maciej Lasek said in a radio interview in December that the CPK project “must be made more realistic” and subjected to in-depth analysis. He stated that he did not believe in the planned launch date of the CPK, which is 2028. In his opinion, “2032 or perhaps 2035” is more likely.

In his statement, Prime Minister Donald Tusk announced that the future of the CPK would be decided in a transparent manner, with the participation of independent experts, and that the project itself would benefit Poland.

Strategic investments

The Central Communication Port is a transfer hub between Warsaw and Łódź that will integrate air, rail and road transport. As part of this project, a new airport will be built 37 km west of Warsaw, in an area of ​​approximately 3,000 inhabitants hectares, which in the first phase will be able to serve 40 million passengers per year.

The CPK also includes railway investments: a junction in the immediate vicinity of the airport and connections throughout the country, allowing travel between Warsaw and the largest Polish cities in no longer than 2.5 hours.

CPK is 100 percent owned by the Ministry of Finance. It is considered a strategic company from the point of view of the country’s interests.
