Tram traffic in Vršovická Street has been restored
Today, the project Reconstruction of a tramway line Vršovická was completed by the ribbon-cutting ceremony that was attended by the Mayor of Prague Adriana Krnáčová, the Deputy Mayor of Prague for Transport Petr Dolínek and the Director General of the Prague Public Transport Company Jaroslav Ďuriš.
Reconstruction of double-track tramway line in the length exceeding 2.5 km was carried out in a very densely populated and busy district of Prague and thus it was demanding in terms of logistics and progress of work rate. The works consisted of execution of overall tramway track reconstruction, including related structures. The crucial part was the reconstruction of busy intersection Vršovická – Bělocerkevská that was carried out under partial operation and in just ten days in order to maintain traffic within the area; this is a minimum time to perform such a structure. The construction was divided into three stages with the fact that the first two of them were executed last year. The third stage was carried out from the end of this year´s February and was completed just by today´s ceremonial putting of the entire section into operation. The construction was executed by the team of the Division Traffic Infrastructure of our company in a joint venture with the companies Porr and Hans Wendel.
