Muzeum station to partly close during weekend

Service on the A line will bypass Muzeum, but the C line will operate

Just when it seemed like the Muzeum station on the Metro A line was back to normal, it will close again.

Both directions will be closed from the start of the day on Saturday, June 23, to the end of the day on Sunday, June 24. Trains will pass through the station without stopping.

The closure has long been planned and is so that construction work on the station can take place. The work was too extensive to be done solely at night when the station is closed.

It follows after tracks were closed for months of planned repairs. The track in the direction of Depo Hostivař was closed from June to December 2017, and closed in the direction of Nemocnice Motol from January to May, 2018.

The Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) recommends that people who want to reach Wenceslas Square should instead get off at the Můstek station, which will be open on the A line.

Transferring from one metro line to another becomes a bit complicated. For transfer from the A line to the C line, the DPP recommends getting out in the Můstek station taking the B line to Florenc, and then transferring to the A line .

For transfer from the C line to the A line, the DPP recommends getting out at Florenc and taking the B line to Můstek, where it meets with the A line.

People planning to travel over the weekend should add some extra time if they need to switch lines.

The DPP will issue informational leaflets starting June 19.

From June 21 an announcement by station loudspeaker will be made, and on line A during the closure announcements will be made in Czech and English in train carriages.

Information boards with a schematic diagram and basic information in Czech and English are also being placed.

In the area of the closed station, information clerks in reflective vests will be available to passengers from 8 am to 9 pm. They can advise on transport connections in Czech and English.

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.

This is not the only metro closure. 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.

Now that the escalator 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.

Work is also taking place at the Dejvicka station, with some passages and exits temporarily closed on a rolling basis until the end of September. The station is operating without interruption.

There are also repairs to tram tracks planned for the coming days. The track from IP Pavlova to Karlovo náměstí will be closed Monday, June 25, from 9 pm to Tuesday, June 26, at 4:50 am. Trams 6, 16, 22, 91, 96, 97 and 99 will be affected. Alternative buses will be in place for day and night service.

On Wednesday, June 27, from 9 pm to Thursday, June 28, at 4:50 am the tracks from Albertov to Karlovo náměstí and Palackého náměstí to Moráň will be closed. Trams 2, 3, 14, 16, 18, 92, 93, 94 and 95 will be affected. No alternative buses will be provided.
