Construction Begins on a New Tram Depot in Prague
Prague, Sept. 7, 2022 – Today the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) commenced construction on its tram depot in Hloubětín. The main part of the construction will be the hangar for parking and repairing trams; however, an overwhelming majority of the premises will undergo modernization. This means that after 73 years, Prague will acquire a completely new depot with a greater capacity and state-of-the-art equipment. The companies VCES and Chládek a Tintěra will do the construction within their partnership Společnost VCES-CHT pro Vozovnu Hloubětín. The construction will last practically two years and two months, and DPP expects it to become operational during the second half of October 2024.
