Complete video of the newly opened D3 thanks to Kasme. The video starts on I/3 north of Lažany, the reconstructed section of D3 and bypass of Tábor follows. In the 12 minute starts the newly built section. The video features both directions and interchanges (first north -> south, then reverse).

Six flyovers over D1 are being demolished tonight and the D1 motorway is closed for traffic in sections Lhotka – Velká Bíteš and Loket - Hořice till the morning. All this is part of the D1 (Brno - Praha) reconstruction project.

Will there also be a closure next weekend? When does the blocking usually begin and end?

Sorry, I don't know the schedule. Watch the RSD webpage through Google translate. www.rsd.cz

No, next closure will probably occur on 17.–18.8.2013.
It starts usually around 8 PM and ends around 10 AM next day, but it may vary. Diversion (alternative route) is signed all the time.

Is the section from Borek to Usilne already under construction?

Nope. There were complications with the tender, because one contender offered "too low" price. Just 46 % of the projected costs.
http://www.budejckadrbna.cz/zpravy/d...-oddaluje.html

The delay is reasoned by the fact that if that offer would be put aside he would go to appeal, and if not, others would go to appeal... I mean WTF? Can't they get the tender right? Can't they evaluate it quickly and correctly? Can't they prepare it so that the appeals would be pointless? Can't they for once make the state stronger than all those construction companies?

My opinion. The tenders are improving, but nevertheless are still poorly designed. Tender offers should be bulletproof. Contenders should be able to offer guarantees, and the lowest price should win. In the case that the lowest bidder doesn't perform, the guarantee would be collected and there could be a new tender. Tenders don't have to last years. I would say that the main problems is the poor projecting on the side of RSD, which in return causes problems in the tenders, and especially afterwards with quality control and performance control (contenders applying additional costs reasoning with bad info, etc.). It is simply unacceptable.

There is no motorway or expressway construction project planned to be finished in the next year. There has been no D or R construction project tendered and started since 2010!!!! This all shows very bad work on the side of the RSD.

The problem is not the money imho.

The problem is lack of competence on the side of RSD. There are loads of money that could be obtained from the EU. There are loads of unused money in the last two years. The RSD was/is simply not able to plan, get permit done, and prepare quick and bullet proof tender. If I were the transportation minister I would send the guys from RSD on a internship to GDKKiA. Even better I would hire the people from GDKKiA and have them manage the RSD and force the staff to work. Do they have lack of qualified workforce at the RSD to do this work or is the workforce so lazy? I dunno. I would say both.

This situation is in any case unbelievable.

R55 Otrokovice

The R55 terminus at Otrokovice in eastern CZ. They built the flyover and ramps for an extension of R55 in 2006, but nothing has happened since.

Today the whole primary road between Otrkovice and Zlín (I/49 Malenovice - Otrokovice) has been opened in 2 lanes per direction (4-lane road with at-grade intersections).



As for the rest of Otrokovice-bypass (southern section), the building permit could be issued in the first half of 2014, but adequate financing for the construction of this section is not secured for 2014 ...

I don't understand the argument for more money based on allegation that the condition of the road was far worse than initially expected/assessed and the reconstruction will cost more.

If they were to rebuild the road from the scratch then what's the difference? Unless the contract was to rebuild all layers without strengthening deep ground layers...?

There's a new roundabout on the road no. 3 north of České Budějovice with only two used accesses. I don't remember the exact location but I guess it is nearby Borek (I cannot find it on OSM). That roundabout looks very strange and I assumed a relation with the D3 construction. Due to the fact that the D3 is not u/c I must be wrong or it was a preliminary work?

Does anybody have information about that strange roundabout?

You are right on the unless I guess. But anyway, if the RSD was unable to provide them with the right information, or did not structure the contract so, that the risk is on the side of the contractor.... I mean. . Why there can't be any contract that is really bullet proof. Those are basic things, aren't they? Its not some minor design question.

Otherwise its like the good old trick for more money going through a copy machine.

A careful reading of the contract would be required to determine who bears the risk in any particular event.

Yep, it has been built for a housing/commercial development project, it has nothing to do with the motorway.

RSD and ministry promised very tight checking of the additional works and personal responsibility in the case of problems.
