New “D” Metro line to start in front of Pankrác shopping centre

A new “D” Metro line in Prague will run from a site in front of the Arkády shopping centre in the Pankrác district of the city, the head of the city’s transport authority, Martin Gillar, told journalists on Wednesday. A tunnel boring machine will be used at Pankrác, meaning a local sports ground will not be removed, as originally planned. Construction work is planned for the turn of 2019 and 2020 at the earliest. The first part of the D line will run from Pankrác south to Písnice. A second, later part will go north from Pankrác to Náměstí Míru.
