Czech Republic: modernisation of a railway line
On 10 July 2014, the modernisation of a section of railway linking Veselí nad Lužnicí and Soběslav (in the south of the Czech Republic) started. The work is being carried out by a group under the direction of Eurovia CS for the railway administration. The construction site, which involves a 6.5 km section between Veselí and Soběslav, will in particular include the strengthening of safety measures. The current level crossings will be removed or replaced by multi-level junctions, with one exception, which will be retained provisionally after the work has been completed. The construction site also includes the modernisation of signals and communication installations, command dispatching mechanisms and overhead contact lines.
