OHL to modernise a railway line in the Czech Republic

OHL ŽS, OHL Group’s Czech subsidiary, has been awarded the contract for the modernisation of the Sudoměřice-Votice railway line, which amounts to 172 million euros.

OHL to modernise a railway line in the Czech Republic


This is the biggest project awarded by the Czech Railway Infrastructure Administration and it will entail the reconstruction of one of the final parts of the fourth railway corridor, which will allow shortening the trips from Prague to the south of Bohemia.

The project is part of the 2014-2020 Transport Operative Program and is cofinanced by the European Structural and Investment Funds and by the Czech Republic State Transport Infrastructure Fund.

In the section from Sudoměřice u Tábora to Votice a second track, two new tunnels and a station will be built. The track will have a new layout that is two kilometres less than the present one and the speed of the trains will increase to 160 km/h, reducing the travel time between Prague and Tábor to one hour.
