Following the rejection of the appeal of opponents to the construction of Metro Line D in Prague at beginning of March 2022 by the Czech Ministry of Transport, they also confirmed that the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP – Dopravní Podnik hl. m. Prahy AS) and Prague City Hall followed proper procedures in choosing construction contractors for the Prague metro line D Pankrác – Nové Dvory section. Including a valid felling permit in the section Pankrác – Olbrachtova, a valid building permit for the construction of metro line D in the section Pankrác – Nové Dvory was received on the 24 March 2022 by DPP. Currently, DPP can commence the construction of the first section of metro line D, after decades of preparatory work.
Additionally, due to obtaining a valid building permit, DPP is enabled to announce a public contract for the construction contractor and the supplier of monitoring and certification of the next section of metro D, Olbrachtova – Nové Dvory.
Stretching in a north-south direction, Line D is going to be the fourth line of the Prague metro, and it will expand from Náměstí Míru to Depo Písnice in the south of the city once completed. While it will intersect with the available metro A and metro C lines, it also will face commuter trains at Nádraží Krč. The metro D line will use automated driverless trains.
