After nearly three years of work, 240 concrete measures to improve transport have been named on the basis of an analysis of problem spots and discussions with the professional public. The major projects include the completion of the Prague Ring Road and other road constructions, the construction of the Metro line D and the development of the tram network, the extension of the railway network including the connection with the airport and city of Kladno, the creation of 100 km of new cycling routes, strengthening of the share of electric vehicles, repair of streets and bridges, improvement of public transport stops, construction of P+R parkings in the Central Bohemian Region, improvement of the city's supply system, introduction of low carbon logistics system, toll system, creation of fast connection with cities such as Ústí nad Labem, Hradec Králové and Liberec, barrier-free public transport vehicles and others.
These massive investments should reach amount of 112 billion crowns by 2030. Every year 35% of Prague's total investments should be spent on transport. According to Deputy Mayor for the transport, Mr. Petr Dolínek, these projects should be financed by the state and the Ministry of Transport by obtaining fundings from the Operational Program Transport and the Integrated Regional Operational Program. The Mobility Plan enters the final phase, the assembly should approve it in September.
The Mobility Plan is a follow-up to the Metropolitan Plan, which represents the new Prague Territorial Plan.
