I've found a news article about the future plans of the new government: > click < (sorry, article is written in language of the Nazis).

Czech Republic needs 2.7 billion € per annum until 2020 (including 700 EU million). It also contains an incomplete project list with estimated construction times. I can't remember already seen it here.

Does anyone have a complete list? Is the list trustable or wishful thinking?

The money should not be a problem. It will be a problem to put it into construction, the paperwork, permits and projects are the problem. Already it is not much anyway when you look at the plans. Don´t forget this is also the roads and rail combined.

There is need for twice as much, easily.

Some older pictures (from 2010) that I shot in north-eastern part of Czech Republic:

On E462 (CZ road 48) just west of Frydek-Mistek:





On E75 (CZ road 11) between Trinec and the Slovakian border near Mosty u Jablunkova:






This picture is actually on the exit slip road at Jablunkov. The main road (E75 / 11) continues on the viaduct.



I've also added few pictures of the same road, across the border into Slovakia.

An unpleasant news.

RSD fired the Miloslava Pošvářová, the chief of quality control. She was in the office just about a year. Pošvářová was the main RSD engine and key person in e.g. the conflict with Eurovia about the quality of the D1 in Ostrava.

http://www.financninoviny.cz/zpravy/...alnice/1030741
http://www.financninoviny.cz/zpravy/...alnice/1030741

She was always quite open about the problems that she came across in the organization and the processes at work there and were quite specific in naming the problems and issues, also on the construction sites. I can imagine she wasn't liked by some.

e.g. video by Czech TV about the D1 in Ostrava, there are also some examples of what Pošvářova was not afraid to show about the quality of the Czech roads. http://www.ceskatelevize.cz/ivysilan...zpackanou-d47/

For me, this is a major let down.

Just to illustrate the dismal situation. She repeatedly pointed out that the whole construction quality control section in the whole Czech Republic comprise some 10 people that are poorly paid (salary under 900 €, while they should control billions). This is not only about some checking after the whole work is done. Those people are also responsible for setting out the frameworks for the contracts which then allow for quality control and for the control during the whole construction phase.

It was quite unbelievable how she described one meeting with Eurovia. She, alone, against a battery of lawyers. Unbelievable how poorly is the RSD managed and how deprived of expertise and manpower.

The way she describes how we came into the current state is that the RSD was purposefully stripped down in order to lose expertise and be any counterweight to the construction companies. This system could work in the past as the pressure on effective spending was not that high and the construction companies could simply take their slice and manage it themselves. When the corruption and wasteful spending became much bigger issues, the whole mechanism stopped, while the RSD was not able to resume any position as it was already without appropriate manpower able to prepare those projects.

Now, it seems to me that firing her leads rather to the previous situation, not really empowering the RSD. This is not the path I would like to see for Czech roads.

This situation seems to me quite embarrassing for the Czech transportation sector, especially looking e.g. at Poland. I am very curious what will the new government (just coming in the office these days) do with it.

I love Posvarova pointing out trivial overpass defect. Here, they will say everything is fine but the overpass already resting on the road below

The RSD director Pavel Kočica. He is the director since half a year. The previous one Čermák or the one before him (three changes within a two years, yes) brought Pošvářová in and supported her. It seemed at first that the tramini was also supporting her.

The pretense for firing her was communication problems and not giving some materials about the D1 in Ostrava to the director Kočica. She said that Kočica did not sign confidentiality for the arbitration process and should not have access to those partial materials at this stage anyway, she was worried about information leakage (her words).

Some sections of D3 between Veselí and České Budějovice should go into construction this year. There are no set data.

Some nice pictures of the Trója Bridge in Prague. (connects to the Inner city ring tunnel Blanka and carries tramway tracks, replacing the old tramway bridge)

Have the works on D1 resumed? As I drove there for Christmas holiday there was nothing going on. I assume they just took a winter pause.

The modernization works should have resumed last weekend, I guess they did. Major works should begin in April when the traffic should be moved to one carriageway in certain parts. In total 7 sections should be undergoing modernization during this year.

Also major repair works will begin again on the D1 in April.

Pošvářová resigned at her advisory role to the transportation minister Prachař. She accused the minister of spreading allegation about her "stealing" at the RSD and gave a notice to him that she can't cooperate with him under such circumstances.

The story thus goes on.

A geological survey on the landslide at the D8 construction site was finally tendered for CZK 2 mln (€ 80 k) by the RSD new management.

http://ekonomika.idnes.cz/geologicky...ko-doprava_neh

What is interesting? The previous contract offer for the geological survey, that was stopped by the new RSD management, would have been worth CZK 52 mln (€ 2 mln) for the contractor.

I.e. the old contract would have had 2600 % higher price .

After a year, someone will do the survey, at last!

Landslide at the D8 construction site caused by the last year summer rains that were responsible also for the massive flooding.

The government also approved several projects to be started this year, funding is available, but the tendering and launching of the projects will be troublesome.
