EU invests for faster, smoother connections on key transport networks

The Commission has approved three "major projects", together worth €161 million from the Cohesion Fund, for upgrading works along road and railway networks in the Czech Republic.

Almost 40% of them have been allocated to the first project that will focus on the modernization of railway sections, aiming at reducing commuting time for passengers and at ensuring a smoother connection between Prague and the German border. The project should be completed by the summer of 2017.

35% of the Fund will be allocated to the second project that will focus on the improvement of an important expressway located at the Padubice region.

Finally, 25% of the Fund will be allocated to the third project in order to upgrade the road section in the Moravian-Silesian region. The project aims at increasing the traffic capacity and ensuring better connection with Slovakia.
