Detailed desciption

The documentation for the decision on zoning approval and building approval includes a proposed extension of the existing tram line in Radlická Street in Prague 5 in a length of approximately 0.741 km on the line section from the existing Y-turn Laurová up to the metro station Radlická where a tramway loop is planned to end the line. The planned construction will enhance the quality of transportation in the area and will replace the existing, inadequate line termination (Y-turn Laurová) with a new and full-featured line termination (loop situated between the new ČSOB bank headquarters and the crossroads of Radlická Street and U Kostela Street). The existing four lane section of the Radlická Street from the crossing Na Laurové to the the crossing U Kostela will be replaced with a tramway line and two lanes (one to the center, one from the center).
The tram line is designed to run on an elevated tramway lane which is part of the adjacent road. The tramway lane runs in the center of the road and is separated by slanted curbing. This way, car may enter the central lane in case of necessity, e. g. if another car stops or an accident occurs. The planned section will have three new stations – "Laurová", "Radlická-škola" and the terminal "Radlická" on the loop. At the same time, reconstruction of adjacent driveways and pavements is planned including connection points of affected underground utility lines (pipes and power mains). The tram line section to be extended requires the construction of a new converter station, sanitary facilities on the loop, new traffic lights 5.668 Radlická-Tramway Loop, traction mains including line wire, new public ligthing and supporting and anti-noise walls. At the end of the construction, grass and trees will be planted in the area, street will be marked with horizontal and vertical road marking and the existing traffic lights 5.553 Radlická – TJ Motorlet will be modified. A new information system will be put into operation including traffic control technology.

About one third of the length of operating lines of the Prague Metro found in the central area of Prague were inundated during the flood in August 2002. The construction of a new flood-protection system commenced immediately, when the damage caused by the flood had been repaired and the metro lines operation had resumed. Analyses and the assessment of the flood impacts showed that the flood wave threatens most of all cut-and-cover structures of the metro lines which are founded near to the surface, namely by increased external hydrostatic pressure and/or the hydrodynamic effects of this pressure. Mined metro sections are virtually unthreatened in these cases. Protection of the cut-and-cover structures is provided by several basic types of traditional construction measures. The structural parts found in the flooded zone are reinforced or thickened, permanently anchored, braced or supercharged. Structures which are selected with respect to their design and local hydrogeological conditions are provided with elements relieving the hydrostatic pressure on the outer surface of stations and concourses.
