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.
The purpose of the construction was to improve the quality and to enlarge the capacity of mass transportation to Barrandov housing estate and neighbouring area and to replace unsuitable bus transportation. The solution of high-capacity transportation will contribute to the development of the Barrandov area which is now limited by the mass transportation situation. The area is extremely suitable for urban development. Certain finance has already been invested to provide engineering lines in the area. The area includes Barrandov, Barrandov housing estate, Lochkov, Slivenec, Holyně and Klukovice. Transportation needs can be satisfied only with a high-capacity rail track with sufficient overkill. The use of a tramways is also beneficial with regard to the environment. Also, the dependence of mass transportation on the capacity of the main access road (K Barrandovu Street) is removed. The road is overloaded with motor-vehicle traffic which is constantly growing. A potential preference of mass transportation buses is also hardly feasible due to the location having insufficient width. The traffic can only be eased after the external road ring is put into operation. More...
