4.12. – The management of the capital plans to spend the most money on transport next year, up to 8.29 billion crowns. The most money will go to the construction of metro D, over four billion. Another more than a billion is earmarked for road repairs. This follows from the draft budget for next year, which was approved by the Prague councilor. In total, the city plans to invest over 19.68 billion crowns. Prague will give more money for investments through its companies. The draft budget has yet to be discussed in December by the deputies.
The highest amount in transport will go to the construction of metro D from Pankrác to Písnice, for which 4.3 billion crowns are set aside. The Transport Company (DPP) is now conducting a geological survey in Pankrác and the construction itself should start next year.
180 million will go to the reconstruction and construction of tram lines. For example, the construction of the line from Divoká Šárka to Dědina or the extension of the line from Modřany to Libuš is planned. 100 will go to the construction of the depot in Hloubětín and the same amount is set aside for barrier-free measures in the metro. 70 million is earmarked for the preparation of the construction of the terminal at Smíchovské nádraží. The money is also ready to increase public transport preferences.
The money is also earmarked for the development of road transport. About 1.08 billion for the construction and repair of roads. The budget for the construction of a part of the city ring from Pelc-Tyrolka to Štěrbohol known as Vlasta is estimated at 278 million. The city counts to invest 301 million in parking or construction of P + R car parks and parking garages.
A total of 29 million crowns is earmarked for the development of infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists, for accessibility and other projects for new safety of pedestrians and cyclists in the city streets.
The city will also invest money through its companies. This money does not appear in the city budget in the investment chapter, but in current expenditures. Next year, the city will invest 3.5 billion crowns, for example through a transport company (DPP), which the company will use for the reconstruction and repair, construction or purchase of new vehicles.
Prague councilors have approved a draft budget that envisages revenues and expenditures of approximately 92.6 billion crowns next year, which is more. Of the expenditures make up the majority of current expenditures, namely about 70, 92 billion crowns. Most of the money will go to transportation and education.
