Prague has long struggled with a lack of places in P + R car parks. He is currently building it on Černý Most or in Hostivař.
Drivers commuting to the capital will be able to use the new P + R car park at the Nové Butovice B metro station. Prague councilors chose a contractor to build a house with 400 stands. The costs are about CZK 292.75 million. Deputy Mayor Adam Scheinherr (Prague Sobě) told reporters today. Prague has long struggled with a lack of places in P + R car parks. He is currently building it on Černý Most or in Hostivař. Parking lot in Nové Butovice built by the association of companies Parkingové dům Petržílkova, which consists of Metrostav and Trigema.
“It is a new parking house with about 400 parking spaces. Half will go to residents and half will be used for P + R parking, “ said Scheinherr.
The parking house will stand in Petržílková Street and will have several floors. Its construction will reduce the amount of traffic on the surrounding streets and contribute to the improvement of the environment, where it will reduce the amount of emissions and noise. The number of drivers driving in search of a parking space is also to be reduced, and the number of cases where vehicles are parked in unsuitable places will decrease. It should be finished in the previous year.
In the last two years, the city has opened about 500 places, for example in Jankovcova Street in Prague 7, at Nádraží Braník or in Opatov. “Last year, we started the trend of building parking houses, when the construction of the Černý Most III parking house is being finalized and construction will start in Nové Butovice.” said Scheinherr. In addition, the Technical Administration of Roads (TSK) is building a new P + R with 78 seats at the Hostivař railway station. It will be ready by the end of this year.
In the past, the Prague City Hall intended to cooperate with the Central Bohemian Region, when they would be established with the support of the metropolis P + R at train stops and stations. According to Scheinherr, however, the Central Bohemian Region did not manage to use up the money that the metropolis intended to invest in the project, as no specific projects were created. “It simply came to our notice then. We tried to help at least like that, but it depends on these individual municipalities, “ he added.
There are about twenty parking lots in the territory of Prague. Since August, the city management has raised the price of parking in the most frequently intercepted car parks, of which it operates twenty. On four people will pay 100 crowns per day and on nine 50 crowns. The remaining seven, which are not guarded, will now be free for 12 hours. So far, drivers in all car parks except one have paid 20 crowns a day.
