Prague rethinks metro connection to airport

Published at: 2017-05-19 11:44 | Author: CIJ Journal
A metro connection to Prague’s Václav Havel Airport is back on the table. The city asked its transport company (DPP) to prepare a sustainability study related to building a new metro line from the Nádraží Veleslavín station to the airport. A metro connection to the airport has been discussed for years in addition to a high-speed railway connection from the Masaryk railway station in Prague 1 to Kladno, with a line to the airport. The railway option won, and the national railway manager (SŽDC) is currently working on the documentation. However, Prague Mayor Adriana Krnáčová said that it will take SŽDC at least 10 years to complete the high-speed track, and Prague wants to look into the cost and time needed to complete a metro connection. Metro A was extended to Motol hospital in Prague 5 in 2015, neglecting plans to build a metro line to the airport from the Dlouhá míle station, where a large P+R was planned.
