A renovation of the Jelení lávka sluice and the adjacent footbridge is underway this year. Consequently there are restrictions in place on the pedestrian movement under the Cloak Bridge and afterwards also across the footbridge. Special caution must be taken when moving in these premises due to presence of building machinery. We therefore recommend that group tours use the temporary spot for boarding and getting off the bus located in the bus station. For more information refer bellow.
1st stage of the reconstruction: until end June 2013 (establishment of arrival route for machinery, construction of reservoir on site and construction of sluice gate for boats)
2nd stage: until end September 2012 (extension of the arrival route for machinery, relocation of reservoir, construction of temporary bridge over Vltava river, injection of concrete to the lower sluice construction left of the sports sluice gate)
3rd stage: until end 2012 (relocation of reservoir, injection of concrete to the lower sluice up until the right bank)
4th stage: until end March 2013 (mounting of the mobile construction of the sluice, removal of reservoirs, removal of arrival route for machinery including removal of temporary bridge)
Renovation works on the footbridge across Vltava River are planned for a total of 4 months. A total closure of the footbridge is planned for a shorter period from May to July 2012.
During the 1st reconstruction stage a construction stage will be established.
During the 2nd stage the present footbridge will be demolished.
During the 3rd stage a new footbridge will be constructed.
Due to the footbridge closure the route from Bus Stop Chvalšinská Terminal to the town center will be prolonged by around 350 meters. In order to reach the town center comfortably and for boarding and getting off the bus we recommend using the existing Bus Stop Terminal at the main Bus Station.
