Over 300 kilometres of high-speed lines
are currently being designed in the Czech Republic
The Railway Administration has concluded another contract for design works for
the future network of high-speed lines
(VRT). The technical design will be awarded to the section of the VRT Střední Čechy between Poříčany and Světlá nad Sázavou, which will be part of the line from
Prague to Brno. Designers are already
preparing in detail more than 300 kilometres of new lines.
The contract for the preparation of the
documentation for the zoning decision
(DÚR) and documents for the EIA process
was awarded to an association consisting
of SUDOP PRAHA, Egis Rail, Mott MacDonald CZ and MOTT MACDONALD
LIMITED. The tender was awarded in
accordance with the Best Value method,
which significantly contributes to the selection of a quality supplier and reduces
the risk of defects in the final work. Using
this method, the railway administration also set important design objectives, which
included the environmental friendliness of
the construction. The track should blend
into the landscape as much as possible.
The procurement procedure was set up
while taking into account the previous experience with project negotiations in the
The almost 80-kilometre section is connected to the already designed VRT Polabí from Prague to Poříčany, which is also
part of the new high-speed line from the
capital to Brno. The timetable for the work
assumes that planning permission will be
obtained in 2025. The construction itself
should then start about two years later.
The line will be used exclusively for passenger transport and trains will run on it at
a speed of 320 km/h. The journey between Prague and Brno will be shortened to
one hour after the completion of the entire line.
As of this date, the Railway Administration is preparing the technical design for
more than 300 kilometres of new highspeed lines. Design work is also under
way for two VRT terminals – Prague East
and Roudnice nad Labem. This year, the
technical designs of several lines will be
completed, preparations for Design & Build tenders will begin and processes for
property settlement will be set up.
