02-06-2015

Prague’s oldest railway bridge, the Negrelli Viaduct, is to undergo renovation, Czech Television has reported. The mid-19th century structure runs over a kilometre from the Masaryk to Bubny train stations via Štvanice island. A project set to begin in January will involve the replacement of stones, the repair of seams and the renovation of its numerous arches. The viaduct was designed by the pioneering Austrian engineer Alois Negrelli and was first used in 1850.
