Prague has a new railway station Zahradní Město. In the recommendation, the route should also lead to the airport – ČT24 – Czech Television
The Prague – Zahradní Město station was established on new line relocations, which the Railway Administration built as part of the modernization of the Prague Railway between the main railway station and Hostivaří. Trains now run there on an extended four-track line with a speed of up to 120 km / h, and the line is also 232 meters shorter than before. According to the administration, this should reduce the running time of trains on the line.
The new station is at the intersection with the growing Průběžná Street. It consists of two island and one external platform, to which stairs and elevators lead. These connect the entire terminal, which also includes tram and bus stops in the subway. For the time being, passenger trains of the S9 line and express trains of the R49 line will stop at the new station, and from December also the expressways of the R17 line.
The station is part of a complete reconstruction of the corridor. As part of this, the Prague-Vršovice station was completely reconstructed, which was expanded by a fourth platform and also an underpass towards Nusle. A new security device was also created in the stations. Furthermore, a new Eden stop was opened on the line last year.
The whole project of modernization of a part of the Prague railway cost 5.3 million crowns, other costs were covered by money from European funds.
People no longer have to run across the tracks
Another newly opened building on the Prague Railway is an extended underpass at the main railway station, which connects the center of the metropolis with Žižkov. The construction lasted about 16 months and cost 219.5 million crowns. The subway is followed by a pedestrian path that leads to Seifert Street and is directly connected to the commercial center of Churchill Square.
At the opening of the underpass, Minister of Transport Karel Havlíček (for YES) reminded that the construction was the primary crossing of the inhabitants of Žižkov and Vinohrady. “Eight years ago, a group of university students calculated that about 1,200 people would cross the dormitory in one work shift. Now people no longer have to have a reason to gamble in such a dangerous way, “said the minister.
Reconstruction of the Art Nouveau Fanta building is also continuing at Prague’s main railway station. The renovation of the facade, which is followed by the repair of the interior spaces, should be completed soon. It started this year. The administration also wants to present other projects on the prepared route at the airport in October.
