Renovation of Prague’s Negrelli viaduct to take longer than planned

Renovation work on Prague’s Negrelli viaduct will take longer than planned. Some of the arches in the historical structure, which serves as a rail bridge across the Vltava, are in a worse state than originally believed, representatives of the Railway Infrastructure Administration told Czech Television on Thursday.

Trains ceased using the structure, which dates back to 1850, in July last year. They were due to return in September 2019 but it now appears that April 2020 is a more likely date.
