Lower house urges government to move faster on high speed rail links


Lower house deputies from across the political spectrum have urged the Sobotka government to move faster with plans for high speed rail construction in the country. The country currently has no high speed rail links and the most advanced project between Prague and Dresden would see construction launched in 2035. MPs are pushing for construction to start in 2025 and end in 2030, arguing that the country should have no problem building 40 to 50 km of high speed rail tracks a year, both financially and as regards construction potential.
