Track possession on the section Praha – Kladno terminated
The track possession between the station Praha-Masarykovo n. and the temporary stop Gymnasijní was terminated
Prague, 29/07/ 2009 – Since 1st August 2009 (00:00 a.m.) the operation between the railway station Praha-Masarykovo n. and the temporary stop Praha-Gymnasijní has been fully restored. From that date the trains of the carriers shall be operated on the section Praha – Kladno according to the timetable again.
The temporary stop Praha-Gymnasijní shall not be cancelled but the trains (except for the first connections on 1st August) will not stop here. The stop Gymnasijní will continue to be used during possession works only, at the railway station Praha-Dejvice.
The Railway Infrastructure Administration took advantage of the track possession to repair this section. Approximately 300 inconvenient sleepers have been replaced, including the track grid tamping on the section Praha-Bubny - Praha-Dejvice on km 3.2 - 2.6. Ditches were cleaned, the geometric position of the rail was optimized and with the aid of a sleeper extractor the muddy ballast bed was cleaned. Naturally, shrubbery stretching to the track structure gauge was cut out. A new platform at the railway station Praha-Bubny was built with a coper between the station track No. 11 and 13 with the length of ca 180 m. The flyover was cancelled and replaced by a pedestrian crossing on km 3.300 (at the cancelled signal box No. 1). The switches at the railways station Praha-Dejvice are equipped with an electromotive point-operating machine.
