Western I see that Surel made this mistake at first Anyway ...

IMHO it will be dependent on the hour of driving. The eastern way is also traffic-lights free, if you take those two radials - you can also use shorter alternative through Průmyslová street, but it's not grade-separated all-the-way.

The western segment of inner ring on the other hand will be quite interesting to drive - as Surel wrote - truck free, many kms of nice tunnels and you'll avoid bottlenecks on the current route But we'll see after the opening first...

lol. i dont really think that there exist a more terrible route than Průmyslová street. it has more traffic lights than every other street.

Is there any plans to reasphalt D2 towards Bratislava ? I dont remember whether that section needed a repair like D1.

If the current situation on motorway department of ŘSD (czech road and motorway directorate) withstands, we can expect some new asfalt overlay on the old concrete surface in next few years...

I drove from Prague to Brno to Bratislava last summer. The D2 is not in good condition, but it is in much better condition than the D1 between Prague and Brno.

There were 681 deaths on the Czech roads in the year 2012. It is 21 less than in the year 2011.

Complete police report in Czech: here

The tendered prices on the reconstruction of the first five section of D1 are known. The price tag was in total some 1,7 BLN CZK (€ 68 MLN) lower than expected. That makes it some 40 % discount in the total price for all 5 sections. From 4,3 BLN CZK into 2,6 BLN CZK

in the picture: the lowest price offers
sections (estimated price), lowest price contender (price)
....
in total
The contracts are still not yet closed and we have to wait if the lowest price bidders will get it in the end (in the criteria is also 10 % warranty). I don't see into the details, but it would be great if this tendering turned out well and into long term practice. Those 1,7 BLN CZK saved could be turned right away into new kms on some motorway, be it D3 or R35 or D1 self.

That seems to answer the collusion question.

If you witnessed the last 10 years of motorway construction in the Czech Republic, you would also have doubts about any new tender unless that tender would show up performing . But we are not there yet. Lets see after 20 tenders.

I don't doubt that there may have been an attempt to collude in these tenders, but the evidence suggests that any attempt was ineffective.

Which is good, and it proves that it has sense to do it in this way. But we both know that whether the tender designs are not shaped based on what is better or more effective. It rather depends on the people in charge and their integrity, as well as the societal control, enforced by good law and police work.

I mean corrupted politicians and state employees know very well what is the optimal design etc, (only small part is to their ignorance), but nevethless they don't go into it, unless forced, or unless they have high moral integrity (but with moral integrity it is very hard to get into those positions anyway).

Prices are € 2 - 3 million per kilometer. That's not a lot for a complete reconstruction of the pavement.

Going from Lovosice to Pirna on Czech motorway D8, first class road I/8, expressway R63, again on D8, crossing the CZ/D border and then on German A17.
The missing link on D8 should be finished in 2015. The German police car was ready on the border .

Just to be on the safe side, the I48 around Český Těšín is still toll free, isn't it?

Too big to show http://www.premid.cz/fileadmin/MYTO_...1_toll_map.gif

Has some construction started on D1? Next week I'm travelling through Czech Republic and I'm wondering if I should expect some delays.

No, still clear and passable. Some major works will start on 1.4.2013 near Brno (D1×D2) and in April near Prague as well (kms 12-16), however there will be two lanes per direction available almost all of the time during these works. Different situation will occur on the "modernisation" section (kms 21 to 182) but public tenders are not closed yet so nobody knows when
