While the stop is being built by the Railway Administration as part of the modernization of the Vysočany – Mstětice section, the bridge will be an event of Prague. The councilor approved the launch of the public contract this week. The estimated price is 85.6 million crowns without VAT.
“Thanks to the new footbridge, people can easily get to the metro station from the railway station, but the footbridge will also connect Chlumecká and Borská streets. Today, this area is divided by railway lines and a turn-off towards the Prague Ring Road. We are also considering that the color of the footbridge could be decided by Praguers in the survey, “said Adam Scheinherr, Deputy Minister for Transport. Completion is expected in the first half of next year.
