Nemocnice Motol: temporary closure of metro station

Nemocnice Motol: temporary closure of metro station

Because of the warranty repairs to be implemented by the contractor, starting on Saturday, the 19th September 2015 (the commencement of the operation) and lasting until Saturday, the 20th August 2015 (the end of the operation), a temporary suspension of the metro A line schedule will occur in both directions in the Petřiny – Nemocnice Motol section. During this period, all the trains will terminate at Petřiny station.

A substitute bus service:

The closed section will be served during the day by substitute XA buses that will be in operation on the Petřiny – Nemocnice Motol – Motol route.

It will be also possible for transportation in the direction of the centre to use the regular bus lines Nos. 180, 184 (to the Dejvická or the Hradčanská metro station on the A line) and bus line 167 (to Anděl station on the B line).

Information measures:

Several different leaflets will be issued. These will be available in the information showcases at metro stations or from informational staff of the Prague Transit Company who will be present in front of the closed stations.

During the period of closure (on both days from cca. 8.00 a.m. till 8.00 p.m.) a sufficient number of informational staff wearing reflective vests will be present in the vicinity of the closed stations, who will be prepared to advise passengers (not only in Czech but also in English) in regard to the currently available transportation links. The informational staff will also have available the previously mentioned information leaflets for passengers.

From Thursday, the 17th September 2015, announcements will be made to alert passengers in regard to the forthcoming closures of the metro stations and these announcemenets will also be made during the actual period of the closure event.

For information concerning two specific destinations (i.e. the Petřiny and Nemocnice Motol metro stations) cca. 10 boards with schematic drawings and basic text information in both Czech and English will be prepared.

We apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused to you and we thank you for your understanding.
