Future of Lochkov
With the reconstruction of the former malt house and brewery in Lochkov "life" doesn´t end. Lochkov Lofts project will become a part of the new residential complex which suburbs the beer towers. Over the next few years, an interesting apartment complex arises, combining apartments, row houses and commerce spaces, ensembled with internal gardens and courtyards, which will pass freely in the small squares and pedestrian zones. Existing civic amenities in Lochkov will be compeleted with new shops, restaurants, cafes, etc.. All social life is going to be concentrated around the existing Lochkov City Hall, where a new town centre grows up.
But already the city part of Lochkov is improving the local infrastructure with the newly built tennis courts and a restaurant with a family fitness center, which are located just 2 min. walk from the project Lochkov Lofts.
New Prague Bypass
Those who prefer to travel by car can access Lochkov from three directions: from Strakonice via Radotín, from Plzen via the ring road and from the centre of Prague via K Barrandovu Street. Traffic congestion on the main roads in the southern part of Prague has been alleviated by the Prague ring road, which is currently under construction and is essential for the capital. In 2010 the new section of the R1 from Lahovice to Slivenec should be in operation and subsequently the connection from Lahovice via Dolní Brežany and Jesenice all the way to the D1 motorway to Brno. In this way lorry transit traffic will be directed off the Jižní Spojka ring road, therefore alleviating Barrandov Bridge and Barrandov. In the case of Lochkov this will mean considerably faster access and a better connection in the direction of Brno.
Tramway Line Extension
The proposed extension of the existing tram lines Hlubocepy - Barrandov, which was opened in 11/2003, picks up on the existing stop Barrandov and continues southwest direction. It will have a length of about 1.5 km and will include a total of 3 stops with the working title Cascades, and Holyne Slivenec. Extension is completed with the new tram loop lying between Slivenec and Holyne, north of K Barrandovu St.. This tram line directly serves the first phase of the current housing estates at the end of Barrandov / residential complex Cascades /, the current residential area of Holyne and Slivenec and after completion stage of development areas consequently these newly-built-up locations . Thanks to tie-in bus connection the wider living area will be served. The main benefit of building the tram lines is to increase the quality of transport service of the territory.
