Plans to build Metro D have been in place since the 1980s, and construction of the first part began this year, and should be completed within seven years. The line must end at the residential area of ​​Písnice. Waiting for Change is now drawing attention to the fears and expectations of local residents. The metro can improve the quality of life for local residents of Prague, but if construction raises real estate prices and it seems that the metro station, for example, Budjovika, will bring them more negativity, warns sociologist Barbora Matisova.

The construction of the D metro stations should take seven years from Pankrác to Olbrachtova, after which the line should lead to Nové Dvory and the last section would be built to Písnice.

“We don’t know what the context is when the final stop comes. For example, the metro brought a better quality of life to erné people most of the time, because they didn’t have to travel by bus and they could stay longer in the center of Prague and at the same time come home later,” he said. Sociologist Matisova says.

“If the metro is to be built, it must go to Pisnica, otherwise it will not make sense as a whole. Even people in remote areas should benefit from it.”

But until then, it shouldn’t be won. “If the metro station looks similar to Budjovika, it will eventually serve someone other than Besnes residents. There is not enough public space in Budjovika, although there are shops there, but it contrasts with how it looks a little further in Pankrác. No money was spared there, it’s obvious He spits in the residents’ face,” Matisova says.

How would life be?

It also depends on how the completion of the subway will affect property prices in the area. “For the municipality to ensure that even after the transformation there will be services and that people’s access to affordable housing will continue. For example, this did not happen in Karelin, ”compares the sociologist.

“New neighborhoods will be created there. But the question is whether they will really be districts, or rather dependent towns.”


The construction of metro line D has begun in Prague, the first part is expected to cost 14.5 billion and will be completed within 90 months

In the residential property Libuš, where the metro is also supposed to drive, people are already active and negotiating with the city council about what the area should look like in the future. But it’s more complicated in Písnice: the apartments there are owned by the developer, not by the locals.

However, much has changed in the 40 years of subway planning, states the sociologist. “We have a climate crisis, a housing crisis, inflation, and unsustainable housing being built. And all of this will also affect the construction of the subway.”

Meanwhile, the popular SAPA Market has also been created, adds Ilyshka Malkova, Curator of the Waiting for Change festival: “The market is not included in the metro plans, but its liquidation has not been proposed either. It is a blind spot. It is at the same time a rather unique local center “.

The moment shortly before the change is the theme of the Waiting for Change festival, which will run until mid-October.
