Also, one of the reasons for omnipresent roadworks is that up until recently, all money was poured into construction of new motorways/expressways with only peanuts left for maintaining the existing network.

It's not a good plan to pour asphalt below 7 °C. While the Netherlands (and most of France) have less severe winters than in Germany or the Czech Republic, asphalting is also limited here during the winter.

Cold asphalt solutions do exist, but they generally don't use it except for emergency repairs.

I thought that the milder winters were mentioned because it implied less damage on the roads thus less need for maintenance. I did not want to make a impression that in the Netherlands the roadworks could be stretched around the whole year in NL.

Overall, I think that the roadworks are simply much more effective and better planned in the Netherlands therefore creating less hassle for the users. This stems from better know how, better work quality and more spent money.

There are two issues, how much become the roads damaged and how well is organized the repairing of the damage so that it doesn't affect the user. I would say that the damage is lower in the NL and the repairing is done better.

When we would move to local roads, there would be also the problem of the length of the whole network compared to the population density. Many minor roads won't ever get the kind of attention in CZ they would get in the NL.

The Netherlands uses porous asphalt on nearly all motorways, which need frequent maintenance and replacement every 10-12 years. Yet road works have very limited impact (under 5% of all congestion, even though capacity-related congestion declined significantly in recent years).

You bring me to also another possible point. In CZ and DE the concrete is often used. If you replace asphalt, you can close one lane each time and replace just the top layer. This is often not feasible/possible with concrete.

Porous asphalt can be laid really fast ( many km per day ) if the sub layers do not require a rebuild as well. That will result in substantial closures.

As well as that the traffic can drop a lot in the summer when the schools are closed and people are on holidays. So Holland gets a weather and time window that is pretty optimal for asphalt laying. IN Croatia and Portugal traffic rises in summer so Asphalt laying must be done outside July and August...not a problem given their weather.

You could scrape off 2km a night of old asphalt and relay the lot with temporary markings in place by morning and full markings by the next morning. 5m a minute forward speeds are not unknown.

Just got the stretch with no roadworks. Maybe due to the newest D/R section.

There are 29 candidates for the position of the ŘSD director. The winner should be known in October.

No roadworks, once again. Where have they gone? South-west is excellent.


Oh! Found themselves here in the second half.

I think the most important thing for the Czech Republic is to start the construction of the D3 Veseli - Bosilec. What do you think??

My vote goes to resuming works on the missing link of D8. Rumors are they want to build a Tunnel where the Landslide occurred
Kind of sad when you think about what Poland has achieved in the last few years in comparison.

Every neighbour country of the Czech Republic have motorway accesses but Austria. They should fix it very soon.

It isn't pure construction, but an upgrade of the existing I/3.

Only Germany has motorway accesses to the Czech Republic.

But seriously: The most important for the Czech Republic (and any other country except principalities) are domestic connections, so if it already D3, it isn't as Czech Rep. - Austria connection, but as Prague - Ceske Budejovice.
More benefits would bring the full complete the following road, that is eg. Bechovice - Modletice section, but this is a different costs level and schedule.

You asked, what is most important for the Czech (Republic), not Austria(n), Linz('s resident), Prague's resident working in Linz and vice versa, you or someone else.

PS During the upgrading, the travel time will not be shorter certainly.
