AFRY will develop a new railway line in the Czech Republic


Swedish company AFRY has won a public tender from public railway manager Správa železnic for the development of project documentation for the final phase of a new railway line in the Czech Republic.

This route will run between Prague Ruzyně station and Prague Václav Havel airport.

The contract is part of one of the largest Czech railway infrastructure projects and one of the BIM (Building Information Modeling) railway pilot programs.

Currently, the country’s capital, Prague, does not have a direct train connection between the city center and the international airport. This makes it the only European metropolis outside of Dublin not to have this facility.

As part of the contract, AFRY will design a new transfer terminal, establish a connection between the railway, city and suburban buses, and possibly trams.

The company will also be responsible for the expansion of the airport’s infrastructure facilities, as well as a Park & ​​Ride parking area.

AFRY will execute the project entirely in 3D / Building Information Modeling (BIM). This project is part of the Czech BIM railway pilot programs.

The company participated in the digitization of the construction sector in the Czech Republic, as well as the introduction of the BIM method in the public sector.

He also wrote the data standard for the State Fund for Transport Infrastructure.

Ivo Šimek, AFRY Country Director for the Czech Republic and Slovakia, said: “This is a strategic and very important project, necessary for the city of Prague, Václav Havel Airport, international travelers and also the inhabitants of Prague. The new line will provide comfort while saving travel time. In addition, the new terminal will become a fast, efficient, high-quality and environmentally friendly alternative to transporting individual cars.

Last year, in October, AFRY was selected for the design of the railway line between Suomusjärvi and Salo of Finland’s One Hour Train high-speed train project.
