Heat Bends Tram Rails in Prague

The high temperatures in Prague have caused tram tracks to bend at Na Veselí street (Nusle). The incident was observed yesterday, Tuesday 5th.

The trams did not run for two hours along the Náměstí Bratří Synků – Vozovna Pankrác line. 

The bended tracks at the spot were fixed by the same evening. The spokeswoman of DPP stated that this was the first big case for this year. The technicians had to cut the faulty track and place it back.

To prevent problems like this, drivers are instructed to slow down near vulnerable areas. The track spots with high sensitivity seem to be the tram tracks above the road levels and old ones.
