State employees will move to more stations
Both the state authorities and the cities are interested in free space of the facilities of railway stations. Together with progressing reconstruction of railway stations owned by Správa železniční dopravní cesty (SŽDC), negotiations with bodies of state or local administration on use of free space take place as well. Prostějov is the first location where the move of state employees, particularly Police of the Czech Republic, occurred last year. Other railway stations will come to life this year with policemen or state or city officials.
„A number of buildings by its size correspond to the needs of the railway at the time of its construction. Today, we are somewhere else indeed. In many railway stations, we no longer have operation staff, not even the technology. However, the railway station is here and people want to keep it serving and we have to deal with it. One of the preferred options is to offer free space to state authorities having their registered office today in commercial facilities. We offer space owned by the state not only to state employees,” Mr. Tomáš Drmola, Deputy Director of SŽDC Director General for Asset Management explains by adding at the same time that: “State offices are visited by people who like to make use of other services offered at the railway station in addition to negotiations there.”
Free space of passenger buildings available at the railway stations of Aš, Louny, Podbořany and Sokolov was occupied by the Further Education Fund. At the end of January, a duty station will be opened directly in the facility of the Most Railway Station vestibule by the Most City Police. In addition to its other activities, it will oversee public peace in the vicinity of the railway station building itself as well. Duty stations of the City Police will also be located at the railway stations in Náchod and Teplice v Čechách. For example, the Police of the Czech Republic will then be heading to Bohumín, Choceň, Žďár nad Sázavou and Břeclav. In Dolní Lipce and Hrádek nad Nisou, the Custom Administration will newly hold its office directly at the railway station, the Probation and Mediation Service in Pardubice and the Czech Social Security Administration in Břeclav.
The City and Municipality Administrations as well are of course interested in use of appropriate facilities in the buildings of railway stations, the seats of local associations registered in the building at the railway station of Štěpánov in Olomouc Region being a model example for the others. The Information Centre was then opened by the Děčín Municipal Office at Děčín Main Railway Station.
