Abstract

The article's purpose is to show the impact of the modernisation of the section Piła – Poznań of railway route No. 354 on the quality of travel. The detailed characteristics of the railway infrastructure in Poland and the elements included in it are presented.
Modernisation of railway line No. 354 on the route Piła – Poznań was included in the Program of the Wielkopolska Regional Operational Program for 2014–2020. As a result, 134 km of track were replaced, translating into a reduced travel time. The modernisation allowed for the reconstruction of the traffic control system equipment. The entire railway line is controlled remotely from Poznań station.
The punctuality level at Pila station when running trains between Pila and Poznań for November and December 2021 was 92.68%. The punctuality level at Poznań station when running trains from Piła to Poznań station for November and December 2021 was 89.61%. In December at Pila station, rolling stock breakdowns caused as much as 40% of all delays.
53.8% of respondents travelled most often, several times a year. According to the respondents, the comfort of travel has significantly increased, as well as punctuality. After the analysis, it was concluded that modernisation positively impacted the quality of travel.
