It is common for motorway distances to be shorter than Google Maps walking distances. For example, San Francisco to Los Angeles is 614 km by motorway, 663 km walking, both according to Google Maps. Genoa to Nice is 196 km by motorway, 228 walking, again according to Google Maps.

Do you know the current state of this planned connection? Some time ago I have read about the completely new route of I/27 which should follow the Uhlava river valley, cross the border near Nyrsko and connect German B20, which would be prolonged in eastern direction. It has a lot of advantages, it would significantly reduce heavy truck traffic on I/26, which goes through a lot of villages and towns which have no bypasses, it would also reduce traffic on the current I/27 which goes through the National Park, and there would be no need to build an expensive eastern bypass of Klatovy...

B20 Furth (Volmauerstr.) – BG (Tschechien) 9900 / 1218 (12,3%)

If we add some traffic from the current I/27 I suppose at least 2+1 (to enable overtaking of trucks) should be built.

Since the tunnel near Furth im Wald is almost ready, the most likely alternative is rerouting of E53 to I/26 and a further upgrade of this road. Road cathegory 2+1 is new in CZ so there is a possibility that the I/26 will be added to plans as a complete 2+1 road all the way from D5 to the DE border...

Biggest floods in CZ since 2002.

Southern part of Prague ring R1xI4 interchange. Rivers Vltava and Berounka. It is clear now why this stretch was built elevetad.

First class road I-30 near the rail station in Ústí nad Labem. River Labe (Elbe).
It is expected that Labe should yet substantially rise when the water mass from Vltava will come.

I drove many times on the section of I30 in Usti nad Labem, then further down the Elbe on I62 towards Decin - Bad Schandau. Amazing to see it under 4m of water... I guess that most of I62 is under water as well.

Odd weather. The west and north Europe are sunny and warm, but the central Europe is flooding. It is right now raining in Helsinki, first time in weeks, but the rain will cease by the noon. Some showers are forecast in Tuesday and Wednesday, but otherwise it will be sunny or half-cloudy for the next ten days. Last week, the warmest places in the Europe were Cyprus, and the areas north of the Arctic Circle, 30+ degrees.

This very night was the first night when the D1 (Praha - Brno) was closed down completely between kms 90 and 112 for demolition of bridge over the carriageway during the so called "modernisation". Police closed both directions around 20:00 on 8.6.2013 and the motorway has been reopened at 9:30 the folowing day. D1 has never been closed for such a long time because of construction works on the Praha - Brno stretch.

Here are some pics:

Empty motorway


Machinery is preparing the "impact bed"


Bridge was cut through and fell down around 01:00 CEST




It is to be expected that such closures will occur at least two more nights during this summer.

There was a massive landslide on the construction site of D8 due to the heavy rains in the last weeks.

Better to have the landslide during construction than after the D8 would have opened.

I understand that the bridges which need to be replaced to accommodate the wider D1 will be sized to accommodate 2x3 in the future.
Actually I do not see any point in widening hard shoulders on the worst Highway in EU, only reasonable thing to do there would be to get rid of that bumpy concrete trash and make a new motorway from the scratch.

It's not the worst motorway strech in Europe, although it is in rather bad shape after so many years in service.

They need to widen carriageways (and do some other stuff like fence it against animals) to accomodate to modern motorway standards and improve safety.

And yes, they will scrap all that old concrete, replace lower layers and build it practically from the scratch in the same place.
