Preparations for New Railway Service Dresden – Prague Continue
Last year, territorial proceedings were launched on the territory of the Free State of Saxony for the German part of the new railway Dresden – Prague service project. The proceedings will include i.a. the option of extending the tunnel under Krušné hory (Ore Mountains); therefore, Správa železnic will examine all possible impacts on the Czech part of the project.
Správa železnic is currently preparing public tenders for carrying out geodetic mapping of the corridor for the planned Rapid Service 4 section of Praha-Vysočany – Lovosice/Litoměřice HSL as well as a geological and natural science survey. Besides that, it will also request an updating of the concerned regions’ territorial development principles which is a step necessary for acquiring a territorial decision. For these activities, Správa železnic uses continuous outputs from the Feasibility study for the new railway service Prague - Dresden.The new line will be important not only for international transport but it will also improve considerably the connection of Ústí nad Labem Region with Prague and thus contribute to an economic development of the whole region.
