Plzen [CZ] - Diversion on U Trati Again in Use

J. Lehmann - 10.06.13

The second part of the railway bridge over Doudlevecké street is under construction from 01.04.2013 until about mid-July 2013. The road has been closed for this work and the overhead wiring has been dismantled. As in 2012, trolleybus routes 10, 13 and 14 have again been diverted on to the service wiring on U Trati.

During the coming weekend the PMDP is providing a historical service on four routes. In addition to the Škoda 9Tr No. 323, built in 1979, which will run every 45 minutes from "Muzeum" via Goethově ulici and U Prazdroje to Skvrňany Škoda VII, two historic trams built between 1899 and 1956 as well as the newly renovated Škoda 706 RTO bus from 1964 will each serve an historic route. The historic trolleybus will operate with a skate on U Prazdroje and Lobezská. In the week before, an overhead connection in the opposite direction was erected there in order to give more flexibilty during diversions.
On 20.12. 2012, Škoda 15Tr no.473 performed its last service on route 16. It was sold to an intermediary in January 2012, but remained as a reserve vehicle in Plzen. Overall, in its 16 years of operation, the vehicle ran a mileage of around 659,000 km. After his last mission, it did not go to the Ukraine as its sister vehicle 467 but to the museum association ZHTA Jihlava.
