Based on a contract signed today, a consortium of DZP, Mott MacDonald and Crido Taxand is to provide the Ministry of Development and the City of Krakow with full-range legal, economic, financial and technical advice, which will include preparing the legal structure for the first project in Poland to design, build and operate part of a tramway undertaking entitled "Krakow Fast Tramway – stage IV".

The advice will include preparing the project structure (and analysing the possibility of using EU funding) and support in selecting a private partner and concluding the PPP contract. The capital expenditure on this project is over PLN 400 million.

At DZP the project will be handled by an inter-disciplinary team led by Marcin Krakowiak, Partner and Head of the Infrastructure & Energy Practice, who specialises in, e.g. advising on PPP and track-based transport, and Magdalena Zabłocka, Senior Associate and specialist in PPP infrastructure projects.
