Muzeum metro stop open in both directions

Work has finished on the Metro A stop other stations are still being renovated

The Museum station on the Metro A line in now open in both directions. The platform had been closed in the direction of Nemocnice Motol since Jan. 3, 2018. In the last half of 2017, the opposite platform in the direction of Depo Hostivař was closed.

People can now transfer to the Metro C line without having to backtrack from Můstek. The exact reopening date was not announced until May 18, after a final inspection was made.

During the closure, tiles on the walls were replaced and adjustments were made to the lighting.

Some work, though, will still be done over the summer and this will require the whole station to be closed on two occasions, the weekends of June 23–24 and again on July 22–23.

The Metro A part of the Museum station opened in 1978, and it is 34 meters below ground. The metro C part of the station opened in 1974 and is just 10 meters below ground.

Renovations to the escalator at metro Anděl on the B line should finally be completed in the middle of June. The exit to Plzeňská street has been closed, and people have had to use the exit at the Na Knížecí bus depot.

Work on the escalators at metro Náměstí Republiky on the exit that actually goes to the square began in January and should last until the end of August. Until then people can enter and exit the station at Masarykovo nádraží.

After repairs at Anděl are finished, the station at Karlovo náměstí on the B line will also have its escalator fixed, though the exact date of the start of work has not been announced. The Palackého náměstí entrance will remain open.

Many of the escalators in the Prague metro system are outdated and prone to breaking down. The renovations should make them more reliable.

The metro system, operated by the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP), has seen a lot of work recently. An escalator at Nádraží Veleslavín opened in early April. The station, which opened in 2015, did not have an escalator from the street to the vestibule in its original plans, but needed one once the airport bus, 119, was moved there. Porters had been used until the escalators were installed.

In 2017, the Jinonice stop on the Metro B line was closed for much of the year due to drainage problems. The station also saw some of its technology upgraded.

Repairs were also done to the Skalka and Palmovka stations, but they remained open.

The Prague Metro opened in 1974. It now has three lines and 61 stations covering a network of over 65 kilometers.

A fourth line, Metro D, is planned and construction should begin in 2019 and last until 2023. The line with extend from the metro C strop at Pankrác to Písnice in the southern part of the city. It should later be extended to Náměstí Míru to join with the A line. The line will use driverless trains.
