Regional leaders back new Brno train station near river

Representatives of the South Moravian Region say a new main railway station should be built near the river in Brno. Explaining the decision announced on Monday, they said that it would be possible to use European Union money to build in that location, while the project would also be completed sooner than in the centre of the Moravian capital. As a second possibility, they suggested a location close to the current station.

The regional politicians’ decision will serve as a recommendation to the government, who will decide on the matter. The Brno city authorities are also due to choose a proposed location for the project, which has been discussed for many years.
