Next week, the construction of another P + R car park in Nové Butovice will begin.
Drivers heading to Prague can use the large-capacity car park in Černý Most after more than a year and a half. The new P + R parking house with a capacity of 886 seats is the largest facility of its kind in Prague.
The grand opening of the building, which took place on the site of the existing car park, took place today. “P + R Černý Most is the largest investment in this infrastructure the city has ever experienced,” said Deputy Mayor for Transport Adam Scheinherr.
At the same time, the parking house is an example of the fact that stopping commuters to Prague on the edge of the metropolis is not a completely cheap matter. The car park was built by BAK Trutnov for half a billion crowns, one parking space costs about 850 thousand crowns (if we include only the new places created). A total of 291 million crowns is to be reimbursed by the European Union. A new P + R car park is also being set up in the Central Bohemian Region near the railway station, but there are significantly fewer of them compared to Prague.
Compared to the original state, there are at most three times more places in Černý Most. There were also parking spaces with chargers for electric cars (8 seats), parking spaces for CNG / LPG (89 seats) and special seats for people in wheelchairs (22 seats) and parents with prams (18 seats). The house has 28 places for motorcycles and a lockable place where cyclists can store their bikes. Drivers in Černý Most pay 50 crowns a day and 100 crowns a night.
On the eastern edge of Prague, another stand was recently created by modifying Chlumecká Street (a total of 101). Another two dozen places were created at the tram loop in Lehovec.
“We are gradually working on projects of intercepting car parks and we will not finish until there are enough opportunities to park and change comfortably on public transport on the outskirts of Prague,Scheinherr added.
The city plans to start construction of another parking lot next week, specifically in Nové Butovice. Next year, construction is to begin in Zličín and at the Hostivař Depot.
