Správa železniční dopravní cesty (SŽDC) completed the reconstruction of a railway station building in Příbram a few weeks ago. Construction works lasted from last September until this April. The construction was carried out for a sum of approximately CZK 8.9 million by the company STA-TECH-CAR.

”The modernisation of the passenger building in Příbram dealt with façade repairs including hole-filling, plumbing and locksmith work, safety and signalling components, the wiring system and a new information system. The building’s entrances and strengthened surface were also reconstructed; protection of the building against pigeons was newly installed as well. The repaired premises were completed by new external furniture. The waiting room for passengers and public lavatories were modernised too“, said Mr Tomáš Drmola, Deputy Director General for Asset Management.

SŽDC plans to invest almost CZK 118 million in 2018 in the preparation and implementation of repairs or reconstruction of station buildings in Central Bohemia. This year, repairs of railway stations in Kolín, Hořovice or Nelahozeves will be completed or launched in the region. ”Besides repair work as such, preparation of more extensive projects continues this year to be implemented next year. From these, we can name e.g. repairs of the station building in Beroun“, said Mr Drmola.
