Train stations

New railway stations

Railway stations are a key component to high-speed lines, as they are strategically located and important for the region. The construction of the new high-speed Dresden – Prague line is a major international project, which will benefit Czech passengers by covering up to 70 % of their travel needs within the Czech Republic thanks to the new railway stations.

On the Dresden – Prague route, passengers will be able to use a brand-new station in Roudnice nad Labem and Ústí nad Labem in addition to the Prague and Dresden main stations. Thanks to their location, the high-speed trains can easily compete with motorway traffic on the route from Prague to Ústí nad Labem and vice versa, and actively contribute to reducing the number of cars that, especially on weekdays, create long queues on the nearby D8 motorway. Thanks to the new stations, there will be the possibility of a fast connection between the regions and the centre of the Czech capital.

Railway station Roudnice nad Labem: 19 minutes to Prague

Approximately 1.5 km from the town of Roudnice nad Labem, a brand-new railway station will be built in close proximity to the exit of the D8 motorway, which is the gateway to the Roudnice and Podřipsko landscape. 

The railway administration envisages connecting the local line 096 between today's Roudnice railway station and Straškov to the new high-speed station.

After the completion of the architectural competition and the incorporation of comments, the Railway Administration presented the final structure of the new station to the public in June 2023.

In addition to a modern departure hall with services, the station includes a maintenance centre for the VRT Podřipsko line, stops for connecting public transport and 3,000 parking spaces for passenger vehicles. There will be a total of four tracks in the station, two of which have platforms.
