The Prague City Council announced on Tuesday that it would be freeing up 10.7 billion crowns, or 535 million dollars, for the extension of the city’s A-line metro over the course of the next six years. According to the Prague Transport Authority, construction could begin in December of this year on expanding the line from its current terminal station at Dejvice to the western Prague district of Motol and eventually Prague Airport. The 12 kilometre track is estimated to cost approximately 18.7 billion crowns in total, of which the city intends to rely on 8 billion from EU funds.
