That's much faster than us! I guess that has to do with mountains raising the cost of highway construction.

^ we have mountains too
but I think 2013 is just "ideal", moreover Budapest outer ring is longer, more than 100 kms.

Estimated costs EUR 432 mil, realization 05/2006 - 03/2009

May photos, from east to the west

Very nice. I've been to Praha twice, the city is beautiful, but there is indeed a lack of a good ringroad. I've been on all radiating motorways from Prague.

No doubt, probably most needed are north-sections 518 and 519 crossing Vltava river, so far all lorries have to use south and east part of Inner Ring Road instead. There are still two variants, I hope the shorter J running closer to the city will be chosen in the end. Construction should start in 2009...

J is most logical because it will be used besides transit by citizens of Prague northern suburbs too.

^ Absolutely, but if it causes too much traffic, it gets bad for transit, but that's why I said it wouldn't be so very transit anyway; I mean, from where to where would you have to go to be in transit here? I think if going from Wrocław to Plzeň, for example, it will be faster and shorter via southern bypass. Only if going to/coming from places north and west of Prague (and of course continuing beyond Prague) will you use the northern bypass. But north and west of Prague there aren't any big cities in the Czech Republic, I know there are some spas west of Prague though (but not that close). I don't know.

I mean routes Karlovy Vary-Hradec Králové and Teplice-Plzeň, and maybe Teplice-České Budějovice (via new motorway for ČB).

Well, I must say I have no doubts about lack of traffic on Nothern bypass. N and E Bohemia has the highest population density after Prague, and the largest cities (Liberec 100 (150 with Jablonec suburb ), Hradec 98, Ústí n. L. 95...) Also, there is lot of car and other manufactorers (Foxconn, TPCA, Skoda MB). Maybe they will use it, but I am not sure about it. It will help us all NorthernEasterners much and of course it will be also used by residents of Prague suburbs, industry, commerce and others

I'm sure there will be enough transit (unfortunately). It should be built then years ago...
btw, sorry for late response...
