Trója Bridge opens to traffic

The Trója Bridge, which is part of the recently completed Blanka tunnel complex, opened to traffic early on Monday. Plans for the bridge changed radically in the course of its construction and its initial cost estimate of 450 million crowns reached the billion crown mark. The entire Blanka tunnel complex, which cost 36.9 billion crowns and was delayed by three years ,will open to the public on December 2. The complex consists of three tunnels connecting the district of Střešovice, the area west of Prague Castle and Trója in the northeast.
