The Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway (PKM) is the first railway line in Poland built from scratch in almost 40 years. It is also the first line in our country built not by PKP, but by the provincial government. It consists of 18 kilometers of completely new railway infrastructure along the route of the pre-war Kokoszków Railway, with 8 stops. PKM connects Gdańsk and Gdynia with the Port Lotniczy im. Lech Wałęsa, helping residents of many peripheral districts to reach school, work or entertainment faster and more safely. It can be said without exaggeration that it is a revolution in public transport in the Tri-City, which marked the development of the agglomeration along the PKM infrastructure.

Functional assumptions of the security systems used

The project of building the Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway was a very big challenge due to the complexity of the systems, their dispersion and the requirement to integrate them into the LCS management center. The project assumed the creation of a coherent Safety Management System (SMS) for the Pomeranian Metropolitan Railway, allowing the control and management of all systems (except for the fire alarm system, which was only supposed to be visualized) from the level of common visualization. The idea of the Integrated Security System assumed integration within one system:

  • Access Control System 
  • Intrusion Detection System
  • CCTV IP video surveilance system with advanced image analysis
  • Intercom system
  • Fire alarm system (visualization)
  • Key depository
  • Environmental monitoring

All elements of the installed Integrated Security System use the TCP / IP network for communication. Thanks to this, it was possible to integrate such a highly distributed system.
