Construction of metro is in the half

Construction of segment Ladvi – Letnany on north part of the red line C reached a half of works. The opening is expected on first half of year 2008. The cost is 15 milliards CZK and it have three stations: Strizkov, Prosek and Letnany. For Prague city hall is building of this segment is a priority in traffic division.

Tunnels and underground parts of stations are build, now the construction continues on laying of tracks, adding technological equipment and building the surface parts of stations.
Letnany station has biggest platform of all stations. Instead of standard 10 meters of wide the station has twenty. It is expected that the station will be highly used by passengers, because near the station is large residential area and new exhibition grounds are build here. The Letnany is also most discussed place where the Olympic games could be made.

Cold shower waited for city hall after suggestion of state budget. Instead of expected 1 milliard for metro construction or at least 420 million as it was last year, the state want to give nothing. The Prague magistrate is of course indignant. In other Europe countries the state funds metro construction by 50 per cents. In Amsterdam, the Netherlands it is even 90 per cents.
