Prague Receives Final Permission for Smíchov Transport Terminal Construction

On Wednesday, April 5th, Prague authorities received final permission for zoning and constructing the Smíchov transport terminal, which will be created based on the current railway station. It will become part of the new residential area of Smíchov City. The Deputy Mayor of the city announced this for transport Zdeněk Hřib.

Currently, the Czech Republic Railway Administration is tendering for a construction company to bring the project to life. If everything goes according to plan, the terminal will begin operations in late 2027 or early 2028.

Previously, the city authorities approved the design of the future terminal, which the A69 architectural bureau developed.

The terminal will become a transit center between buses, trains, trams, and the metro. In particular, they will move shuttle buses currently based at Na Knížecí station. The historic station building will be restored and “delicately” integrated with the new hall. In addition, the creation of a fourth railway platform is planned.

Part of the terminal will be the P+R intercept parking lot, designed for a thousand cars and a thousand bicycles, as well as the administrative building of the Czech Railways Administration (a separate architectural competition was held for it, so the appearance of the building is still unknown).

The following 2-3 years will be spent preparing all the necessary documents. The construction itself will take another two years.
