It seems like they first construct a bypass for every town and city that needs one, and for the rest they'll see later on.

More or less yes, but that's not a principle.

Many S roads(like this one) are regular 1x2 DK roads upgraded to 2x2 standards and thus there may be difficulties when consulting with by-the-road inhabitants

The same as here, unlike in Croatia, for example, where they build long sections. That's why everyone thinks Croatia has more motorways than Slovenia for its size, although it isn't true.

Do you think that the Croats are your rivals?

And for the S-road constuction: it helps getting the transit traffic out of town, which is a big advantage. A big disadvantage is of course that you hardly make any progress and that you'll still have to connect all bypasses later on.

Yeah, they always boast around how much more motorways they have, when it's not even true.

Is this interchange A4xA1? I really look forward to seeing the whole section Lipník nad Bečvou - Gliwice completed. It would be much more comfortable from Brno to Silesia Now it´s quite annoying - czech I/48 and then polish "almost" motorways with traffic lights.

But after completing, I am quite affraid, that there will raise intensities from Poland via Olomouc and Brno to typical holiday destinations like Alps and Medditerranen and the traffic problem will move to Brno bypass and stretch Brno-Wien. Both project (widening of Brno bypass and R52/A5 Brno-Wien) are in planning, but very far from realizing. Of course except stretch A5 Wien-Shrick which is under construction.

Kornik means "chicken coup". The town is home to a beautiful castle.

Then we get 3 lanes but no emergency lane. So upgrading will demand pavement's widenenig.

A wide em lane can become hulpful when you want to carry out roadworks on one carriageway. You can eventually work with the 4-0 situation (4 lanes on one carriageway), so the same capacity remains available.
