Work covers adapting the building’s cladding including the facade with heating and modernisation of the interior together with changes in layout. The total investment cost of the construction amounts to CZK 27.5 million.

The main objective in the construction is a complete renovation of the whole passenger building. Construction adaptations will deal with the cladding, during which it will acquire a facade with heating; windows, doors and the roofing will be exchanged. Work will also include construction modification of the interior with changes in layout for the renewal and modernisation of the current premises and to increase travelling comfort and ensure barrier-free access. Sanitation of the cellar, central heating and the wiring system will also be carried out.

Construction work will result in certain limitations for passengers. During the construction of barrier-free lavatories, passengers will be use mobile lavatories; ticket sales will be available for the whole duration. A transit corridor will be created for passengers at Platform No 1 by means of wooden boarding or a board system with proper route markings. Transport employees will have a background to carry out their duties during reconstruction.

The construction was launched this month and will be completed by February next year.
