Around the stations of the new metro line D between Prague’s Pankrác and Písnice along with around 6,200 new apartments and a number of commercial, administrative or public buildings will be built in municipal and private projects in the next few years, representatives of the city told the press today.

Construction of the D line began in April. The section of the new line from Pankrác to Olbrachtova Street was the first to be built.
It includes two stations, where the Pankrác station will transfer to the current station of the same name on line C. The connecting section will connect Olbrachtova with Nový Dvory and another will lead to Písnice.
The metro from Pankrác to Písnice should be completed in 2029, after which the city is also counting on a section heading north
from Pankrác to Náměstí Míru.
