There will be a lock between Výtoní and Podolská waterworks in Prague. Trams will be replaced by ships and bicycles – ČT24 – Czech Television
The exclusion will interrupt the tram connection between Prague 2 and 4. Deputy Mayor for Transport Adam Scheinherr (Prague Sobě) said that the city is one of the possibilities to set up a pontoon bridge around the rock. “Unfortunately, there is no way to make a pontoon bridge into a bend,” he said. Therefore, as in the past, secure ships with a direct replacement connection.
The X21 boat line will run daily from 6:00 to 22:00, the boat for 160 people will run every ten minutes at peak times and every quarter hour off-peak hours. The stops will be at the docks on the Rašínova nábřeží embankment and on the quay behind the yacht club complex in Podolí. Accesses on the pier are not suitable for wheelchairs or passengers with prams. It will also be possible to use Rekola’s shared bicycles free of charge to cross the tunnel between Výtoň and Podolí.
Two tram lines will be canceled completely
In the direction from Modřany, the connection to Podolí will be provided only by the strengthened tram line 21. Due to the exclusion, tram routes number 2, 3, 17, 18, 32 and night 92 will be modified from the center. Lines 4 and 24 will be canceled.
During the day, bus line 134 will be sent between the Podolská vodárna and Pražského povstání stops, and buses to Smíchovské nádraží and Budějovická will also be strengthened. In night traffic, tram 92 will be divided into two parts, in the direction from the center it will end in Otakarov and in the direction from Modřany at the Podolská vodárna stop. A spare bus X92 will run between Podolská vodárna and the Prague Uprising.
DPP Technical Director Jan Šurovský added that the ships will be used for the fourth time to provide alternative transport around Vyšehradská skála. According to him, this happened for the first time in 1975, then seven years later and then in 2008. As a result, according to him, the need for a repair period should be limited by the planned new bridge between Dvorec and Zlíchov, which will provide a new tram connection.
