The terminal will be located near the take-off and landing runways, the Estek Business Center and the Praska ring road. A new transport hub will be created, which will be connected by railways with road transport, city and suburban buses and views with trams. The new P+R parking lot will significantly improve the infrastructural facilities of the country and ease the traffic of Prague 6, stated the editor-in-chief of Sprva Eleznic Ji Svoboda.
The technical feasibility of this proposal was carried out by the company AFRY. According to him, this is the result of ongoing negotiations with the investor and other interested parties.
The architectural design fully utilizes the potential of the terminal not only as a transport hub, but also as a focal point for future development in the vicinity. The priority is functionality, safety, easy orientation, intuitiveness, fluidity of movement and speed of movement, said Ji Pavlek, from Pavlek Huln Architects, who is the author of the relative proposal. He also added that the quality and attractiveness of the environment, which motivates the use of public transport, is also essential.
The ceiling will be dominant
According to the author, the most striking element of the terminal should be its shield. The height of the roof will change according to the functions of the individual buildings. Instead, you should first get on above the bus stops, then you should go up the curve towards the main entrance to the underground passage with the transfer to the train. In the design, the roof is half glazed and allows light to flow straight into them. Its other side contains photovoltaic panels, which are supposed to cover the consumption of the terminal and the falling capacity of electric cars in the parking lot.
Three to letiti is a part of the railway from the center of Prague to Kladno, which is divided into several sections. Currently, only the section on the Negrelli viaduct is finished. They will start building in the fifth year at the latest, by which time Masaryk’s mine should be reconstructed. The new connection should be electrified, run along two tracks and should enable the operation of trains traveling to and from Kladno in ten-minute intervals. The estimated cost of the entire track is around 40 billion crowns.
