STRABAG Rail won the tender with a bid of 39.6 million crowns excluding VAT. The construction work itself will start in September and will last approximately 14 months. The new building will provide facilities for a check-in hall, ticket offices, public toilets and additional commercial space.
The one-story glass building will connect to the existing historic exhibition building. It will remain in place and will be transformed into the services of the city police. The main reason for constructing a new building is to increase passenger space, reduce maintenance costs and minimize unused space. The building will be very energy efficient with almost zero energy consumption.
The core of the new building will be an entrance hall with access to the underpass, into which individual building modules containing cash registers, commercial spaces, public toilets and operational facilities will be inserted. A staircase will lead from the hall to the underpass, and there will be four entrances to the street and two to the 1st platform. Public toilets were created in the western part of the building. The building will include two units for commercial use.
Praha-Radotín station is currently undergoing extensive modernization, which began in August 2019. The station will receive a new platform with a standard height of 550 mm above the top of the track, barrier-free access to them will be ensured from the reconstructed lift.
