Higher safety on railway crossings Trutnov - Teplice nad Metují
11 December 2015 – Today, the Railway Infrastructure Administration festively launched the modernisation of railway crossings on the line Trutnov - Teplice nad Metují. The most important asset of this project is increasing railway transport safety in this section, smoothness of railway and road operation and ensuring higher comfort for passengers.
”Safety on the railway is a matter of priority in a long term not only within railway lines’ modernisation. From an operational point of view, locations where railway lines cross roads remain the most dangerous ones. Therefore I believe that this important reconstruction of crossings between Trutnov and Teplice nad Metují will improve this situation “, said Mr. Pavel Surý, Director General of the Railway Infrastructure Administration.
The project’s content is a reconstruction of 14 railway crossings consisting in constructing light crossing safety equipment (PZS) on level crossings of the regional line Trutnov střed – Teplice nad Metují with roads of various levels. Construction works will also include repairs of carriageways, installation of power feeding for respective crossing installations and an exchange of the railway superstructure and substructure.
The project is based on priorities of the Operational Programme Transport which has as objective improving railway transport outside the Trans-European Network (TEN-T). Its main purpose is especially increasing safety on crossings and equipment reliability, decreasing the human factor impact and centralising safety equipment.
The supplier of the construction designated as Railway crossings on the line Trutnov – Teplice nad Metují is the company AŽD Praha. Total planned costs amount up to 115,767,894 CZK (VAT excluded). The project is co-financed by the European Union from its Cohesion Fund under the Operational Programme Transport up to an amount of 88,001,934 CZK.
