“In the future, all 600 intersections in charge of the Technical Administration of Roads (TSK) will be connected here, as well as all the sensors we have on the roads will be connected here, thus enabling us the safest and most efficient traffic management,” said the Deputy Mayor. for transport Adam Scheinherr.
All tunnels in the building will also follow the training facilities for dispatchers with new simulators.
Traffic in the city currently does not drive from one place. The traffic control room is located in Na Bojišti Street in Prague 2 and the tunnels are operated from Strahov, where they were originally located originally for the management of only the Strahov tunnel.
In Malovance, there will also be a backup center of the capital’s crisis staff in emergency situations and a transport company (DPP).
The building is located north of Bělohorská Street between the Pyramida Hotel and Na Malovance and Patočkova Streets. It is a reinforced concrete monolithic column skeleton divided into two parts. A consortium of building companies took over the buildings in April this year and began its passportization, as the construction of the former Prague management was stopped in 2016 and preserved in 2018.

Experts are currently assessing the condition of buildings, including roofs and perimeter cladding. “We do not have specific outputs yet, but the load-bearing structures are in good condition and we will certainly find some things that have degraded due to the weather, but it will not be anything significant,” said Jan Šlajs from Metrostav DIZ, which will complete the building. At present, the rough construction is finished.
The construction of the control room at Malovance was connected with the construction of the Blanka tunnel complex, which had been built since 2007. Its construction was accompanied by a number of problems, including three landslides. It started operating in trial mode on September 19, 2015 and was not approved until 2019. It consists of its three tunnels, through which tens of thousands of vehicles pass daily.
