On the line from Prague to Beroun, the timetables will change from Monday. Most trains there now have long delays iROZHLAS
From Monday, according to the ROPID website, due to the unbearable situation on the Prague – Beroun line, the S7 line will be split. Trains will run under number S7 only on the route from Prague Main Railway Station to Beroun.
The existing S7 trains to Český Brod will be transferred to the S1 line from Masaryk Railway Station. Trains to Řevnice in the morning and from Řevnice in the afternoon will leave outside the Prague-Smíchov station. The restriction will also affect some S9 trains due to the exclusion on the line to Lysá.
Due to problems on the line, for example, the management of Černošice turned in an open letter to the Ministry of Transport and the Railway Administration. Mayor Filip Kořínek (Věno černošické) wrote in which, among other things, he wrote that people and the city management understand that workers are repairing the track in several places.
This is mainly the section between Radotín and Prague Smíchov, where several connections have recently been canceled. For some, the railway workers let us know in advance, for others it was said to be from minute to minute.

According to Nela Friebová, a spokeswoman for the Railway Administration, one of the reasons for the complications is the recent emergency situation in the traction currency in Prague-Chuchle. There was a reduction in traffic due to a lightning strike and a subsequent fire. However, the planned optimization of the line and related repairs will not end until July 2022.
The overall repair of the railway also includes the reconstruction of a temporary converter station, which will supply the traction line for the period of the reconstruction of the existing converter station. According to the spokesman, the railway administration, in cooperation with the builders, is speeding up the commissioning of this facility so that it takes place in the shortest possible time.
