Hi everyone :)

Today I haven't much to say or rather write :P Allster is almost 1 mln citizens city so you could imagine how big it is. Traveling over city by only your legs will be difficult, so there is many public transport networks around the city of Allster and whole metropolitan area. Today i wanna show you one of the network which is a tram. The tram lines start operates as a single line in 1946, after a Second World War. From 1946 for today tram lines are still operated by the same company TRAM Allster. Today tram network have 6 lines which connecting the major districts of the city and is still developing. Below you can see a tram network map and some pictures from the tram stops ;) Oh I almost forgot - tram stops names are only in Polish because some of them cannot be translated but instructions and communicates are in both languages :) So enjoy and don't forget to buy a ticket :P

Hello everyone in New Year :D

I have a little update for the begining of new year and it's a industrial update i think, so let,s begin. :)

swwfnm.png

Have you ever wonder where the electricity and heat comes from to over 800 000 city such Allster is?

So here is the answer.

23u7rd4.png

Elektrociepłownia Allster S.A. (Heating Plant) was built in 1975 as only a heat production facility and for providing the heat to Port Estate and Port of Allster. In 1978 city council decided to close and demolish Downtown heat plant and connect the downtown and southern districts heat network to "ECA" which needs to be develop. First reconstruction ended in 1982 when the second Heating Block was offcial opened. Thru city growing and still increasing power consumption in 1992 "ECA" started building 3rd Heating Block and prepare the existing two Blocks to produce electricity. From 2002 "ECA" provide heating for 80% population of Allster and electricity to city districts and part of Allster County.

Below you can see a closer view of the facility.

Hello everybody! :)

As I said in previous update today I'll show you construction site on SC A1 highway and eastern part of metropolitan area highway. :D

Overwiev of the A1 highway [clik on image to enlarge view]

24deow5.png

A1 highway was biult in 1929 as a single lane highway to connects Allster City with Dannisk. After second world war it was rebuilt to two lanes highway, reconstruction ends in 1963. Beetwen 1951 - 1968 highway was extended west to Asunen.

Due to city develop and and congestions in rush hours city coucil decided to build a connector that shortened route from the eastern part of the city to the center. The connector was finished in 2001 as a single lane highway with no-collision junctions, but due to still rising number of cars now there is another reconstruction.

Reconstruction of A1 - Southern Connector A1 junction

Today i wanna show you Port of Allster, the biggest port in Masuria which is still developing and grow. Allster is a city on the coast so the sea transport is one of the ways to exchange tons of cargos from all over the world. It also provides many work place to citizens of Allster. So let's begin our overview.

35bb.png

The heart of the port is control tower. It was built in 2008 to manage all sea traffic in whole Allster Bay. Port consist of many harbors, docks and basins, so army of sea traffic controllers sends ships in right places. Near the control tower there is a coast guard station to provide safety and patrol the sea border in all bay to prevent from illegal crossing.

f4b5.png

The biggest part of the port is container exchange harbor. It services thousands of container ships every year. 8000 containers from all over the world is reloaded every day in this part of Port of Allster. On the right side we can see the coal harbor which is used to reloading coal, especially for the Allster coal power plants.

4hew.png

Containers are loaded on trains at harbor railyards and transported to many different parts of the city and country. At shorter routes there are also loaded on trucks and delivered to their destination points on time ;)

4v2q.png

Main railyard is a central service station at the port. Locos are serviced at the maintenance hangars and prepared on schedule. Freight trains are also checked at this point by duty officers and border guard officers. Unused wagons waiting here for loading.

8gxk.png

Masuria is a big agricultural producer so at the port is located huge grain reloading harbor. Over 1 million tons of grain is exported from Allster port to all over the world, especially to US and Russia.

tqks.png

Not much too say, simply a highway connector that communicates Port of Allster with the A1 and A2 highway and the whole city of course ;)

And that's Port of Allster.

Thanks for visiting! :D
