By supporting the columns in Holešovičky, Prague is once again testing the exit from Blanka and the patience of the drivers
By changing the lane change in V Holešovičkách Street, which recently surprised drivers, Prague is once again trying to solve difficulties. The trial run will last three months. Three months of convoys in the center of Prague are expected.
Instead of two continuous lanes in the direction from Argentinská Street and the Barikádníků Bridge, two lanes from the Blanka tunnel have been newly established, one of which is continuous.
Drivers from the Argentine direction have to prepare to run in one lane, which causes complications for people heading for the D8 motorway.
The Prague City Hall proceeded with a trial repainting of the markings due to the fact that during the morning and morning rush hours, around 2,500 vehicles per hour pass through the Bubeneč Tunnel in the direction of Troja.
Due to the intensity of traffic in a non-rural situation, the entrance to the tunnel complex is regulated daily for 2.5 hours.
The municipality has started a similar transport experiment in the Holešovičky area in the past.
In 2017, the metropolis, together with the Technical Administration of Roads (TSK), introduced an amendment that gave drivers heading from Blanka a lane, which reduced lanes up to several tens of meters further in the area of the turn to Na Truhlářce Street. The measure did not work.
The current regulation will be evaluated after three months and it will be decided which transport model will be maintained.
The town hall also narrowed the road from two to one lane in Plzeňská Street in Prague 5. However, the busy road returns to the original two-lane layout, as it turned out that the single-lane modification complicates the arrival of ambulances to the nearby Motol hospital and was critical of it. Prague 5.
Narrowing outages concern the section under the Kukulova and Bucharova street flyovers. The city promised to increase the safety of pedestrians and cyclists.
