The Praha metro belongs to the critical transport infrastructure, and therefore, great care is taken to ensure its safety at all stages of the life cycle. Due to aging the structures, fittings and systems, and new requirements on servicea-bility and safety, the reconstruction of some parts needs to be performed. The paper deals with compilation of terms of references for reconstruction of critical object on example of one important metro station. At reconstruction, there are considered new legislative demands and knowledge on metro station operation in last period (more than forty years), namely in particular from flood in 2002 when station was seriously harmed. To ensure safe reconstruction process, the terms of references are very detailed, were reviewed by experts and verified in practice.

Keywords: Terms of references, Risks, Safety, Reconstruction, Specific requirements, Metro station.
