Prague 4 opposes street change plans
Work could begin in 2019 in the Pankrác area if agreement is reached
Prague 4 authorities are opposed to rebuilding Táborská, Na Pankráci, Na Veselí and Soudní streets, as they say the traffic in the area would become more congested. The Prague City Council approved the plan at the end of February.
The plan was developed by Prague Institute of Planning and Development (IPR). The area is home to several public institutions including Czech Television, the High Court and Ministry of Interior. Prague Deputy Mayor Petra Kolínská (Greens) said the Pankrác area is important to the entire city and the renovations of the streets would bring it up to appropriate levels for public use.
The plan includes more trees and benches, and improved bike lanes. Tram lines would also be extended to Pankrác and Budějovická. The renovations would make it easier to transfer between subway, trams and buses in the Pražského postání and Pankrác areas and increase the number of parking spaces from 745 to 792. It should also improve conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.
There are three options for renovating náměstí Hrdinů and the surrounding area to make it more useful and improve transportation.
The first phase of the planned renovation work could begin in 2019 and affect Táborská and Na Pankráci streets. Conceptual plans approved in February will become the basis for design work.
Prague 4 however disagrees with the analysis and says that the number of parking spaces would actually be reduced and the traffic situation would actually deteriorate. Prague 4 is asking for the study to be be redone with input from the district, and that the district would be able to approve changes.
The plans had been open for public discussion and input before approval, but no solutions were found to include the suggestions that had been made.
