HOCHTIEF CZ is working on the following parts of the project:

Station Bořislavka (formerly known as Červený vrch)

Station Bořislavka is a single-bay station with one cut and cover vestibule. The depth of the platform below the terrain is 27 m. The total length of the station is 193 m. The construction was done by the New Austrian Tunneling Method (NATM).

Station Motol

Station Motol is a shallow, cut and cover station with lateral boarding platforms. Glazed roof structure allows utilization of sunlight. The length of the station is 160 m. Its construction is made of monolithic reinforced concrete and contains two floors. Below the boarding platform there is a underpass below the adjacent street leading to the bus stops on the other side.

Track tunnels

Between the Station Motol and the access shaft we have realized a 750 m long, twin-track tunnel executed by the NATM method.

Another tunnel (410 m long) was built behind the Motol Station and it is partly driven (220 m) and partly cut and cover 190 m.
