Praha metro Line D tunnel construction

CZECH REPUBLIC: The European Investment Bank is to provide a KC22·7bn 40-year loan to finance 50% of the cost of construction of the first phase of Praha’s fourth metro line.

The first phase of Line D will run from an interchange with Line C at Pankrác to Olbrachtova, Nádraží Krč, Nemocnice Krč and Nové Dvory.

Construction began in March, with Subterra, Hochtief and Strabag as the main contractors.

The project also involves the procurement of 10 five-car driverless metro trainsets.
