Prague Council approved the construction of metro line D

Prague Council has officially approved the construction of the metro line D in the section Pankrác – Nové Dvory whose construction will take about eight years.

Metro D will connect the city center to neighborhoods in the southern part of Prague that now has poor public transportation options. The trains will be driverless.

Mayor of Prague Zdeněk Hřib stated: “The construction of the new metro line D is one of the largest transport projects that will affect the lives of the capital and its inhabitants in the coming decades. Hundreds of thousands of people pass through the Prague metro and its stations every day, so it is important for us that Prague residents feel comfortable when traveling on the new line.”
Artists Vladimír Kopecký, Jiří Černický and Stanislav Kolíbal will design the new Metro D stations Nádraží Krč, Nemocnice Krč and Nové Dvory.

Deputy Mayor of Prague Adam Scheinherr said: “Our goal is to make every station a place of high artistic value where Prague citizens will feel comfortable”.

The Prague Transport Company has launched a website entirely dedicated to the upcoming metro where visitors will be able to find detailed information about the new line, and the latest news on the construction. It is available here:
