Long Description:
[EN] In 2008 was finished the bridge, that is a part of railway's rebuilding in the center of Prague called "The New Connection (NC)". NC was realized to immprove connection between several railway stations together with speeding up the trains, because the 200 years old trail wasn't designed for a such speed and a quantity of present trains.

[CZ] Nové spojení (celým názvem Nové spojení Praha hl.n., Masarykovo n. – Liben, Vysocany, Holešovice) je stavba nových cástí pražského železnicního uzlu, a to východne od centra Prahy, na okraji Žižkova a v Libni. Jejím duvodem bylo propojení dríve neprímo spojených nádraží a malá propustnost staré vítkovské trate.

Nové spojení hlavní a Masarykovo nádraží napojuje všechny trate od severu a severovýchodu. Jeho soucástí jsou dvojkolejná trat mezi Balabenkou (smery od Vysocan a Holešovic) a Libní, dve nové dvojkolejné trate mezi Balabenkou a hlavním nádražím, zachování dvojkolejné trate mezi Libní a Masarykovým nádražím na severním úpatí Vítkova a spojky mezi dvema tratemi na hlavní nádraží a puvodní tratí na Masarykovo nádraží.

Nová trat je konstruována na rychlost 80–100 km/h a vede dvema dvojkolejnými tunelovými troubami o celkové délce 2680 metru horou Vítkov. Severní vítkovský tunel (délka 1364 m) vede smerem do a z Libne, Jižní vítkovský tunel (délka 1316 m) vede smerem do a z Holešovic a Vysocan. Jedná se o 3. a 4. nejdelší železnicní tunel v Cesku. Z vítkovského tunelu vede k hlavnímu nádraží po 438 metru dlouhé ctyrkolejné estakáde, která premostuje Trocnovskou a Husitskou ulici. Ve smeru k libenskému nádraží navazuje na tunel 322 metru dlouhá dvojkolejná estakáda Sluncová. Dva menší nové železnicní mosty jsou i na preložené trati Praha–Turnov.
