Overwhelming majority of Czech expressways have hard shoulders. There are few exceptions including R46, but typically expressways have hard shoulder 2,25 - 3,25 m wide depending on design category and standards in force in time of construction.
Of course it's true.
Quote:
Btw even Poland with its fairly new network has shoulderless motorway sections (A18).
A18 is not a motorway yet. Motorways without hard shoulders are only A4 Krzywa-Wrocław and S6 Trójmiasto bypass. In both examples pavement is in excellent condition. It's smaller percentage than in Czech (all R7, R35 north of Olomouc, all R46, all D2, D1 Prague - Vyskov).
The inference is:
Cech has more km of motorways per km2, but Polish are in much better condition.

Czech road projects seem to have stalled significantly, while Poland is still going ahead in a higher gear.

Czech Republic is a lot smaller and they have pretty much all main connections in place. Perhaps except some major schemes like D3 or R35

Many planned projects have been postponed. For example, there is still no movement on completing the southeastern leg of R1, which seems like quite an urgent project.

Two words: budget cuts.

R1 is plagued by NIMBYs.

Its not only the budget cuts. Its very bad management. And that goes both for the financial part and for the planning/permit part.

Also, there are many projects that were already signed some 4 years ago, than it was clear that the funds for those projects were not there and the projects are now sleeping and just gaining on value for the construction companies.

The management of the EU funds was and still is a complete disaster in the Czech transportation construction sector.


This all stems from two words:

corruption

incompetence

In both those two areas Poland scores much better. Therefore it is only logical to see its rapid developement.

What is the status of this segment of D11?



The last thing I heard that a farmer was finally expropriated in June 2011, but did they start construction? There was a temporary entrance at the region border in June 2010 when I was there. The next planned segment of D11 starts north of road I/11, so there's a little gap of about 4 kilometers.

That segment is financially covered and some archeological explorations have been done this year. Major works are to be started next year, hopefully at full pace - hopefully, because there's still one small piece of land, that is not expropriated, this time it's about the sister of the aforementioned farmer and her son/lawyer. One big mess with this village. Such cases we call "it's like living in Kocourkov". As I recently discovered, Dutch have also such a "village" called "Kamper" so "Kamper ui", or Wise men of Gotham in UK, Schilda mit Schildbürger in Germany or Pacanów in Poland

There is still small piece of land that is still not in the possession of the state. It is again one big legal comedy. There is also going on archeological survey before the construction can commence.

The good news is that as of February 2013 a new law on expropriation and infrastructure will come into force which could make things easier and smoother in the future.

It's planned to be put into service in phases between 2015 and 2017.

When did the four-lane expressway between D1 and Jihlava opened to traffic? I understand that the Jihlava bypass opened in 2004, but the expressway to D1 may be older?

The first bit (A-B on the map) opened together with the motorway in 1979, B-C in 1980s and C-D in 1990s (in a way, here's how it was in 2003). Stretch with the tunnel was completed in 2004, but the remaining part of the bypass further south in 2008.

The first tendering for the reconstruction and 75 cm enlargement of five sections of the D1 motorway between Prague and Brno is coming into the second phase. The tendering companies are known, now the price will decide who will get the contract (90 % of the criteria, another 10 % the warranty conditions). There are tenders on five different sections going on at the same time. In total some 13 companies entered the tender, at least 12 companies compete on every section.


The above mentined sections:

Quote:
section 5: Šternov (exit 41) - Psáře (exit 49)

section 9: Loket (exit 66) - Hořice (exit 75)

section 14: Větrný Jeníkov (exit 104) - Jihlava (exit 112)

section 21: Lhotka (exit 153) - Velká Bíteš (exit 162)

section 22: Velká Bíteš (exit 162) - Devět křížů (exit 168)
Competing companies:

Quote:
EUROVIA CS, a.s., Praha

Metrostav a.s., Praha

Swietelsky stavební s.r.o., České Budějovice

Sdružení D1 – Šternov – Psáře (Vodohospodářské stavby, s.r.o., FIRESTA-Fišer, rekonstrukce, stavby a.s., Inženýrské stavby Brno spol s.r.o., SMP CZ a.s.), Teplice

Sdružení PCI pro D1 (Porr a.s., COLAS CZ a.s.), Praha

Dálniční stavby Praha, a.s. - only sections 5 a 9

Strabag, a.s., Praha - only sections 14, 21 a 22

http://zpravy.ihned.cz/cesko/c1-5905...i-opravovat-d1
EDIT: For me this seems to be major test of whether the construction business in the CZ is getting cleaner. The fact that all five sections are tendered at the same time is unfortunate, because it gives space for certain collusion between the construction companies.
