I missed the exit on R1, so I turned back on D1 and took it from the other way

A five kilometer first class road I-60 long bypass of Javornik was opened for traffic. The road connects north west Silesia in Czech rep. with south Silesia in Poland (map).

The five km bypass costs were at € 12 mil without VAT.


The transit won't have to go through the Javornik center with places like this:


And instead can take the newly built road:

The argument between Eurovia and RSD about the quality of the D1 motorway section in Ostrava is evolving. The limit for application of the warranty is closing next month.

Independent German experts consider the construction of several bridges to be flawed. There are five bridges needing to be fixed for some 2 - 3 BLN CZK (€ 100 mil +). Furthermore the RSD found out that the contractors charged it for some 300 tons of steel that was actually not used at all. More details in Google translated articles for those interested.

There should be extra penalty for Eurovia because of the quality of the D1 motorway section in Ostrava. The RSD should disqualify them from starting in tenders for ex. 1-2 years in Czech Republic.

Yeah, that would be nice. But the legal shit is not so simple to make it possible. And if anything I think that Eurovia could allways bankrupt on its Czech subsidiary, after tunneling the activa to the mother, if they find the costs too high.

Reducing competition for a few years might not be the best idea. There are alternative punishments without such negative consequences.

Any news about Kolin bypass? Should be in an advanced construction phase.

It should be opened on 7 december this year. The pricetag of almost 8 kms of the first class road I-38 bypass of Kolín is 1.9 BLN CZK (some € 80 mil) without the VAT.

Thank you for your fast answer

Seems quite a large amount of money invested in it but it's nice to see that all interchanges are 2-level.

Kolin... I used to deliver there a lot at the PSA plant. (Peugeot-Citroen). It was a pain in the ass to get to. From the town centre, you'd get over this big bridge, and get onto a large industrial estate (dual carriage way). Problem was, that the road after the bridge was closed for a long time, so the diversion would get you through a housing estate. But it was so badly sign posted, that me and three other vans actually got lost in the middle of a field one time...

The D-class and R-class roads may be more exciting but, in many cases such as the I-38 bypass of Kolín, upgrading I-class roads is a more urgent investment.

Personally, I'm looking forward to:
- the widening of the D1 between Prague and Brno,
- a later similar widening of the D2 from Brno to the SK border,
- completion of the R52 to the AT border,
- completion of the D1 near Prerov, and
- in the distant future, the construction of the R38 from the D1 near Jihlava to the AT border.

Just a widening of the D1? Road surface is horrible in the direct Prague area...

The project (now underway and due to be completed in 2018) includes a complete resurfacing. You can find details a few pages back.

There is no plan for D2 widening afk, although there will be reconstruction going on. The R38 is not planned, although it would make sense for the EU transit maybe, though the number are not that high to justify 2x2. The major bypasses on I-38 are finished. The bypass in Znojmo is U/C and prep phase. The bypass in Želetava is in very premature prep phase (EIA).

It is not really a widening. The only section to be widened to 3x3 is the bypass of Brno. The route Prague (Mirošovice) - Brno will be widened by 0,75 cm on each side to allow for 2x2 arrangement on one carriageway in the event of trafic closures. This widening is done first on one carriageway and then the traffic is moved to that carriageway, the other side will be also widened and will get a new surface. After that the first carriageway will get new surface as well.

Few years ago there were plans for making the D1 right away 3x3, those plans were scrapped.
