Modernization of the line Votice – Benešov u Prahy: Work progress (June 2012)


Prague, 11thJune 2012 - Given the kindly climatic conditions, planned working processes can be fully developed and the modernization work on the line of Votice – Benešov u Prahy is underway.



The main work focuses on the restoration [planned as at 29/8] of the first line track in the track section of Olbramovice – Bystřice, running through three new tunnels – Zahradnický, Tomický and Tomický II. The building of relocations to these tunnels is coming to an end; after the overall constructional readiness of the tunnels and the implemented cabling laying, work proceeds on railway substructure and superstructure. The whole reconstruction involves the passing point Tomice and railway station Bystřice u Benešova that will become railway stops. In Tomice and in Bystřice, it is necessary to reconstruct three bridge structures, which puts time restrictions on the proceeding construction process.

Noise barriers are built in Bystřice as well as contact line supports and cable routes.

 The construction work calls for necessary traffic closures and detours on neighbouring roads. The construction also affects traffic operations. The traffic is restricted in places where work proceeds on bridge structures, or it is directed to bypass roads.
