Reconstruction of náměstí OSN and its Vicinity

The tram line in Sokolovská - Kolbenova streets is undergoing reconstruction. The adjacent public spaces will also be transformed. The hitherto ambiguous náměstí OSN area will become a pleasant place to meet and hold cultural events. We have prepared a conceptual study with new crossings, sidewalks, benches and trees. A new public transport stop should be built directly in the square. This will facilitate and shorten the time needed to transfer between trams, buses and the metro.

What should happen and why? What will change?

What should happen?

  • The quality of the central public spaces and selected sections of adjacent streets will be improved
  • The tram loop will be returned to its pre-war position around the block - the Špitálská stop will be moved and the tram loop relocated to its pre-war position around the block defined by Kolbenova, Pod Pekárnami and the former Ke Kolbence streets
  • A new multi-purpose area of the square, which will be used for organizing cultural events and markets, will be established.
  • The tram stop will be moved directly inside náměstí OSN and transfers from the metro or bus to the tram will be quicker.
  • The stop will use the unified name “Vysočanská” for all types of public transport
  • The náměstí OSN intersection will be simplified by losing one arm - Pod Pekárnami street
  • Comfortable travel to the station in Paříkova street
  • A barrier-free crossing over Sokolovská street at the intersection with Paříková street will be built
  • Integration measures for cyclists will be completed - lanes for cyclists on the main streets and new crossings on the main and planned backbone routes
  • A barrier-free pedestrian network will be created through new crossings and sidewalks, while public transport stops will be barrier-free
  • Parking will be retained, but front gardens, sidewalks and trees will be added
