New train timetable valid as of this Sunday
Prague, 11 December 2015 – A new railway passenger transport timetable for 2016 will be valid as of Sunday 13 December. On that day, trains on several cross-border line sections leading to Germany and Poland will be riding again; new railway stops will be at disposal for passengers as well. The validity of the new timetable ends on 10 December 2016.
The most important event is undoubtedly operation renewal on the cross-border line from Aš to Selb-Plößberg. While freight trains stopped their rides here twenty years ago, regular transport of passengers returns after full seven decades. Travel will be also possible between Vejprty and Cranzahl during summer. After several years of pause, passenger trains will also connect a pair of railway crossings between the Czech Republic and Poland. Passengers will be thus journeying again from Bohumín to Chalupki and from Český Těšín to Cieszyn. Operation renewal occurs in domestic transport as well on the reconstructed line from Mělník to Mšeno. On the line No 024, trains will also return to its ending section between Mlýnický Dvůr and Štíty.
The new timetable brings also an opening of new railway stops, especially thanks to reconstructions of the respective line sections. On the East Bohemia line No 031 this occurs at Opatovice nad Labem. Right two new railway stations will be opened at the Prague suburb Běchovice thanks to a new stop “Střed” (Middle) which will shorten the walking distance to trains for the majority of its inhabitants. More comfortable access to a commercial zone at the periphery of Český Krumlov will be offered to passengers getting off the train at Domoradice stop.
Construction of the timetable is assured by the Railway Infrastructure Administration as the infrastructure operator in the Czech Republic. This year, a book timetable designed mainly for railway staff will not be published. Information on train connections of all carriers can be found on the website www.szdc.cz or on notice boards at railway stations and stops.
