In the coming weeks, residents and commuters passing through Vinohrady can expect disruptions to their daily routines as essential repairs take place at the heavily frequented Flora intersection. These repair works are set to begin on Monday, Sept. 18, and last for a period of three weeks.

The primary focus of these repairs is the replacement of the six-core track branch in the direction of Korunní Street, along with necessary maintenance on curved sections at key intersections within the city.

The transport authority overseeing this project, the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP), has laid out a comprehensive plan to manage tram services during this period of disruption. Commuters are advised to plan their journeys accordingly as tram services on several lines will be affected.

Over five lines affected

Starting with the first stage of repairs, tram services along Korunní Street, specifically in the section between Flora and Náměstí Míru, will be interrupted in both directions. Lines number 10, 16, 23, 24, and 91 will operate on modified routes, while line number 13 will be temporarily canceled. 

Lines 10 and 16 will be diverted via the Radhošťská and Náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrady stops, passing through Náměstí Míru and I.P. Pavlova. Line 10 will terminate at Zvonařka, while line 16 will conclude its route at Náměstí Bratří Synků interchange.

Line 23 will follow a shortened route, traveling via Moráň, Albertov, Palackého náměstí, and Karlovo náměstí stops before returning to the Královka interchange. Line 24 will also be shortened, running only from Vozovna Kobylisa to Florenc. Night route 91 will be divided into two segments for the duration of the repairs.

To mitigate the impact on daily commuters, DPP will introduce tram line 30, which will run from the Sídliště Řepy stop via Anděl, Karlovo náměstí, I.P. Pavlova, and Náměstí Míru to Čechovo náměstí. Furthermore, to enhance accessibility in Vinohrady, DPP will bolster bus line 101, specifically between the Viktoria Žižkov and Koh-i-noor stops.

Closures from end-September, too

The second stage of repairs, slated to commence on Saturday, Sept. 30, will focus on the replacement of the eighteen-heart branch in the direction of the Olšanské hřbitovy loop. This stage is anticipated to conclude on the evening of Oct. 6. During this period, trams will not operate along the Vinohradská street section between the Radhošťská and Olšanské hřbitovy stops. To fill this gap, a replacement bus line, X11, will be operational along the Želivského – Flora – Radhošťská route, with the X91 line offering nighttime service between Želivského and Flora.

From Sept. 23 to Oct. 13, commuters can expect disruptions as the new Holyně - Slivenec tram line is integrated into the existing network. During this time, tram line number 5 will terminate at the Sídliště Barrandov loop, and no replacement bus service will be introduced.
