Drivers heading to Prague can now use the large-capacity car park in Černý Most, with a capacity of 886 parking lots.
“P + R Černý Most is the largest investment in this infrastructure the city has ever experienced,” said Deputy Mayor for Transport Adam Scheinherr.
The construction of the parking house has been started on July 1, 2020. Despite the coronavirus crisis, construction work on this building proceeded according to schedule.
With this implementation, the City of Prague has made a significant contribution to improving the traffic situation in Prague 9, where there is a long-term shortage of parking spaces.
There are parking spaces with chargers for electric cars (8 lots), parking spaces for CNG / LPG (89 lots) and special lots for people in wheelchairs and parents with prams.
P + R Černý Most offers 28 lots for motorcycles and a lockable place where cyclists can store their bikes. Drivers will pay 50 crowns during the day and 100 crowns at night.
The city plans to start construction of another parking lot next week, specifically in Nové Butovice. Next year, construction is to begin in Zličín and at the Hostivař Depot.
Parking at the edge of Prague is experiencing increasing pressure due to the introduction of parking zones in more parts of the city.
A solution would be to have commuters from the Central Bohemia region park at their nearest train station and continue to the city center on a train.
However, parking is a problem there as well. Many towns in Central Bohemia such as Milovice, Cerhenice or Pečky are preparing P+R projects, and the Ministry of Regional Development is offering support from EU subsidies.
