Tram travel in Prague’s center will become more difficult temporarily with the closure of the tram tracks on Smetanovo nábřeží and in Holešovice.

The scheduled maintenance of the tracks will affect daytime tram lines 2, 17, 18, and 24 plus the night tram 93 between the Národní divadlo and Staroměstská stops. There will be no substitute bus service. The changes will begin just after midnight on the night of April 14/15 and last until midnight on April 24/25.

The routes of tram lines 2 and 24 will be altered. The service on lines 17 and 18 will each be split into two parts. Night tram 93 will make a detour. Temporary tram stops will be established at Malostranská and Staroměstská. A stop used by bus 194 will be moved to near the bridge Mánesův most. A list of all the changes can be found on the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) website. Vehicle traffic on Smetanovo nábřeží will also be limited.

The Technical Roadway Administration (TSK) announced that it would repair the tram tracks and road surfaces and rehabilitate the sewerage connections on Smetana nábřeží between Národní and Betlémská streets.

The platform at the Staroměstská stop will also be expanded. Lighting poles and traction lines will be repositioned with new traction masts added, and some existing ones will be removed.

The project is a continuation of work that took place last year to make Smetanovo nábřeží barrier-free.

Railway bridge being dismantled in Holešovice

A separate project will see tram traffic disrupted in Holešovice along Dukelských hrdinů between Strossmayerovo náměstí and Výstaviště from midnight on the night of April 14/15 and last until midnight on April 24/25 due to the dismantling of a railway bridge at Výstaviště.

This is part of the Railway Administration's plan to improve commuter service on the Prague to Kladno line by creating a new Prague-Výstaviště train stop.

The daytime tram lines 6 and 17, historical tram line 41, night trams 93 and 94, and bus 156 will be affected. Trams will make detours around the closed tracks. Bus 156 will not stop at OC Stromovka. Complete details of the changes can be found on the DPP website.
