Demolition recommended for well-known Prague rail bridge

A well-known Prague railway bridge is in line for demolition, the newspaper Mladá fronta Dnes reported on Thursday. The steel bridge between the city’s Výtoň and Smíchov districts is in such a poor state that it cannot be repaired, according to a study commissioned by the Railway Infrastructure Administration.

The bridge, which first went into operation in 1872, is a protected structure and may eventually be replaced by a copy, Mladá fronta Dnes said.
