Czech and Bavarian transportation ministers signed a declaration to improve the railway connection between Praha and München. In 2025 this connection should get to under 4 hours.

The Czech side is busy with construction of the corridor to the CZ/DE border. The declaration means that the German side is starting similar planning and the corridor came into the Bundesplan of urgent railway priorities.

Prague is planning new railway tunnels and stations under the city centre (so called "Nové spojení 2") to accomodate more suburban trains.

It has been part of their plan for a while and is also included on their 2016 version here https://app.iprpraha.cz/mpp-dwn/02_k...tura_25000.pdf

Fun map for people to look at to see all the planned rail upgrades, tunnels, highways, tram lines, stations etc.

Unfortunately at present getting from Praha Hl. Nadr. to Beroun takes too much time and without the planned Barrandov Tunnel it can't be a real High Speed Line. Any chances for implementation of these plans?

Tracks from Prague-Smíchov to Beroun should be "optimized" (modernised) between 2019-2025, design speed 90-140 km/h.
20 km long tunnel is back on table, but it's in very early stages only with the feasibility study under way.

However, for Prague the proposed railway tunnels under the city centre are much more needed, since the capacity of tracks is used up and quick S-bahn is essential, Prague is currently clogged with cars from suburbs and exurbs. Unfortunately, it was late 10 years ago and we won't get them maybe next 20 years... Considering Munich opened its S-bahn tunnel in 1972 and is digging the second one now, we are a bit late.

Leo Express has received entry permit on the Polish tracks. Leo Express will operate connection between Prague and Krakow and will become a first foreign private operator in Poland in the long distance personal rail transportation. The permit is valid for the Ostrava - Krakow correct route. We could thus see Leo Express trains on Prague - Ostrava - Krakow route, maybe in the end of this year already.

High-speed railway line Berlin-Praha

Germany just upgraded the importance of the high speed railway link from Berlin to Praha via a tunnel between Dresden and Ústí nad Labem. The railway line is now considered of "urgent need" (or "high priority") which means that the planning and construction stages will take off. The german part of the railway line will now be built within the next 15-20 years.

I know that the Czech side was always pressing for that - now it becomes reality. It means that the Czech Republic can start the process of upgrading the railways between Ústí and Praha and start to plan details of the railway link between Ústí and Germany.

(german only) »The federal government approves the construction of a railway tunnel in Saxony«

A first "memorandum of understanding" was signed on 26. August 2017.

(german only) Tillich welcomes the memorandum of understanding regarding the new railway line Dresden - Praha

Total length of the new railway link between Dresden and Ústí: 43 km around 22 km each in Germany and in the Czech Republic. the tunnel through the mountains will be 26 km long. On the german side, the design speed is considered to be 200/230 km/h (mixed traffic with cargo and persons) which necessarily includes most of the Czech part north of Ústí.

In 2015, the german state of Saxony published a summary paper outlining a few things to happen between Dresden and Ústí nad Labem:

(german/english) New railway line Dresden - Praha outside the Elbe / Labe valley
