Mott MacDonald to work on Czech Republic high speed rail project

Mott MacDonald has been appointed to carry out two studies for a cross-border rail line that will connect Dresden in Germany with Ústí nad Labem and Litoměřice in the Czech Republic.

The company will work on the high speed rail network in a joint venture with Sudop Praha.

The electric railway will be part of the Trans European Transport Network’s Orient/East Med core corridor.

The companies will carry out geotechnical investigations and environmental impact assessments for the possible routes. They will also do preparatory works for design phases that involve technical investigation for major bridges and long tunnels. They have been appointed by the Czech national railway infrastructure manager Správa Železniční Dopravní Cesty.

Mott MacDonald project director Tomáš Parák said: “This project is a major step into the new age for the Czech Republic’s railway infrastructure. As well as providing a direct link between Dresden and Prague, the new railway line is important as it will provide capacity enhancement for international traffic from the North of Europe and Baltic Sea ports to southern European countries.”
