Section of Metro to close over weekend

A section of the green-labelled “A” line of the Prague Metro, running between Malostranská and Dejvice will be closed this weekend as engineers undertake repairs. The repairs to the line’s electrical system will cause yet more disruption: passengers at Můstek station will be forced to change trains for the remaining few stops to Malostranská. A special tram service is set to enable passengers to travel to Dejvická. According to a spokesperson for the Metro service, the repairs are essential in order to connect existing stations on the “A” line to the extension, currently underway, which will add four new stops beyond Dejvická by 2014 and an ultimate extension towards Prague’s by then re-named Václav Havel Airport some time around 2020.
