Work begins on project that will relocate railway station in Veleslavín underground

The railway in the metropolis is undergoing dynamic development, a large share of which is due to the ongoing modernisation of the line to the airport and to Kladno. It also includes the section between Veleslavín and Ruzyně, which has advanced to the next stage of preparation and has obtained a designer. The documentation for the joint permit will be elaborated by companies SUDOP Praha and Moravia Consult Olomouc for CZK 211,656,000.

The biggest change within the construction will be the railway station in Veleslavín, its design came out of an architectural competition. The tracks and platforms will be moved underground, and passengers will also get a more comfortable transfer to the metro. However, the entire subsequent section will get modern parameters. The new stop Praha-Liboc will be added, and the modernised station Praha-Ruzyně will move to the opposite side of Drnovská Street. Trains will speed up significantly. For example, in the section where the line speed is currently 40 km/h, it will increase to double.

The estimated cost of the construction is almost CZK 10 billion, the work should start at the end of 2026 and last for three years.
