AFRY has won a public procurement by the Czech Railway Manager, Správa železnic, to design a high-speed railway between the municipalities of Brno and Velká Bíteš in the Czech Republic.
The project involves the design of a 33 km high-speed railway section between the municipalities of Brno and Velká Bíteš in the Czech Republic. The new double-track high-speed railway has a maximum train speed of 320 km/hour. The project also includes the design of several connections to the conventional railway network and modifications of the related road infrastructure. The section is part of the Prague-Brno HSR corridor, which will become one of the busiest railways in the Czech Republic and should reduce travel time between Prague and Brno to less than one hour.
The contract for AFRY also includes the environmental impact assessment, all supporting documents such as geological, hydrological and environmental surveys, the architectural and urban design of two railway stations.
