Blanka tunnel sees average of 75,000 vehicles daily

A survey by the Technical Administration of Roadways of the Capital of Prague suggests that an average of 75,000 vehicles pass through the city’s Blanka tunnel daily. The most-heavily used section (of three) is the Brusnice tunnel, followed by the Bubeneč section and finally Dejvice tunnel. Traffic above ground improved on major streets such as Milada Horáková, Argentinská and Veletržní, but worsened elsewhere - namely in parts of Dejvice - where routes leading from Vítězne naměstí have become clogged at peak hours. The Blanka tunnel complex was opened last September after several years in delay. The project cost the city more than 40 billion crowns.
