The Prague Public Transit Company (DP) will begin construction on the southern vestibule of the Olbrachtova D metro station on Na Strži Street in Prague 4, from the intersection with Antala Staška Street to the intersection with Radová and Matěchová streets.
For the next three years, this approximately 110-meter-long section of Na Strži Street will be closed in both directions to all traffic, including buses 124 and 170, which will be rerouted.
Aneta Řehková, a DP spokesperson, urged drivers to avoid the area as much as possible. She said, “The majority of previous measures related to bus lines 121, 170, 193, 904, and H1 remain in effect. Local individual car traffic will be diverted to Antala Staška, Budějovická, and Olbrachtova streets.”
Ondřej Boháč, director of the Planning and Development Institute of the City of Prague, called Metro D the most important infrastructure project in Prague. It is intended to better connect the southern part of the city to its center, which will help alleviate the city’s housing crisis.
Busy construction sites can already be seen along the planned stations of Nádraží Krč, Nemocnice Krč, Nové Dvory, and the Libuš housing estate. These areas are expected to be completely transformed in the future in connection with the construction of Metro D.
The closure of Na Strži Street for the construction of the southern vestibule of the Olbrachtova D metro station will cause significant traffic disruptions. Buses 124 and 170 will be rerouted, and local individual car traffic will be diverted to alternative streets. The Prague Public Transit Company urges drivers to avoid the area if possible.
