18.06.2011 Getting stuck at a level crossing does not have to lead to an accident; you just have to follow basic rules.
Today´s collision between the bus and the express train in Chrást u Plzně could highly unlikely be prevented. However, drivers often do not know how to react in similar situations.
The signalling installation on the line Svitavy – Ždárec u Skutče registered an unpermitted passenger train and secured the stop of another train coming from the opposite direction.
The Railway Infrastructure Administration, state organization, as the operator of the state-owned railway network is going to check all important lines prior to the strike termination. On all national lines (corridor as well as non-corridor), inspection runs will be carried out, in order to ensure safe launch of the operation, three hours prior to the planned strike termination until the first train departs.
An important reconstruction of the track facility had been under way in the railway station Nesovice for less than a year. The construction completed on today´s festive occasion has been co-funded by the European Union under the Operational Programme Transport. The total cost of the station reconstruction is CZK 166,935.207 without VAT. The Cohesion Fund is to contribute with the amount of CZK 139,513.842, which accounts for 85 % of the eligible cost of the project. The remaining part has been co-funded from national resources through the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure.
In connection with the accident which occurred in the track section Vyškov – Ivanovice na Hané on 5. 6. 2011, Ing. Pavel Habarta, SŽDC´s Executive Director, issues the following order:

The investments in level crossing safety installations will increase by more than 30% in 2012 compared to 2011 and the cost will total more than CZK one billion. Almost 500 million will then be spent on repair and maintenance of level crossings.

20.05.2011 Festive completion of the Optimization of the railway section Planá u Mariánských lázní - Cheb
The „Optimization of the railway section Planá u Mariánských Lázní – Cheb was festively completed. The completion of the whole western branch of III Railway Transit Corridor resulted in 30-minute shorter journey time between Cheb and Plzeň. Another benefit of the construction is the enhancement of rail operation safety by means of up-to-date signalling installation, and higher comfort for the public in the form of barrier-free accesses or information systems. Overall, the construction provided higher technical parameters in line with the requirements for the trans-European railway network (TEN-T). The essential strong point is the compliance with European safe passage capability of the line class D4 UIC and loading gauge UIC – GC.
Due to climatic conditions, planned work procedures can be fully developed and the modernization of the railway section Votice – Benešov u Prahy is underway.
