It's a long discussed topic between Czech motorway enthusiasts. But I think the main problem is that you are used to different signage from your home countries. I have to say I've never had problems with navigation through Czech roads.

The solution is simple though. Try to persuade the EU law makers to pass a directive about a single road signage in the Union. Our politicians will follow that without hesitations.

On topic of roundabouts, this is how they are signed in my hometown. Seems pretty clear to me.

https://www.google.si/maps/@49.94085...aA!2e0!6m1!1e1 - this is my favourite example of Czech signage. There's absolutely no clue at this junction where to go - even though it's the main road to Mohlenice and the R35. There's no signs, nothing - if you're trying to follow the fastest route from Poland to Brno, then - you'll get lost here, for certain.

Klodzko and Nysa are signed when driving from Mohelnice - https://www.google.cz/maps/dir/48.07...!2b1!3e0?hl=cs
Mohelnice is signed when driving from Šumperk(Nysa) - https://www.google.si/maps/@49.94248...Xedub_J3OQ!2e0 although I agree that a sign for R35 would be great
Mohelnice is signed when driving from Klodzko aswell - https://www.google.si/maps/@49.94068...0WUwU_gsjw!2e0 again, sign for R35 missing
However, I've driven there at least a hundred times so I know the crossroad by heart. I admit that for someone who drives there for the first time it is hard to recognise where exactly turn left/right.

I quite often drive in Czech Rep. and on main roads (I/ roads and motorways/expressways) I have no problem with signs. Unlike the sign in local roads. Sometimes, they make me angry...

Why anyone would go past Bludov is a clue to me... ;-) But generally I find Czech road signs simple to use and clear, and here around Olomouc it's usually very easy to find your way. There are a few exceptions, but that's generally on smaller roads. And such roads have bad signs in most countries (I remember biking to London many years ago; everything went fin until we came to England, where minor routes only have signs to the neighbouring village, which usually is to small to be shown on maps). Then I have only driven in CR and Sweden, never in Poland. So I can't really compare.

Speaking of bad signage...I'm surprised that no one mentioned this - http://goo.gl/maps/RdEkt
no road numbers(except E67, but no one knows what it is anyway), almost no important destinations(where's Ostrava, Olomouc, Trutnov or even Poland?), but Opatovice nad Labem with a population of 2500 is signed

That's quite a rare case though, normally on decent roads, signage isn't a problem in CR. I still maintain that the junction in Bludov is an utter disaster - advance signage is fine and well, but please - would it really hurt to just have a signpost at the actual junction? To make it even stranger, the junction itself looks absolutely unimportant - so you end up in Sumperk because you're still waiting for a junction that looks important enough to be the actual right turn.

The Czech Road and Motorway Directorate (RSD) is going to start or continue building of 60 km of motorways and high-speed roads in 2015, and it plans to complete 20 km of roads during the year, Transport Minister Dan Tok said on Czech Television (CT) today.

[...]

A section of the R35 express road from Hradec Kralove to Mohelnice and a section of the R6 express road to Karlovy Vary near Lubenec will be launched during the year, Tok said.
The Czech Minister of Transport seems to be proficient in maths too.

I11: Ostrava-Krasne Pole – Ostrava-Poruba 6.7km (November 2012 to May 2015) – projectmap
I11: Mokre Lazce – Ostrava-Krasne Pole 9.8km (January 2009 to August 2015) – projectmap
R6: Bosov – Lubenec 4.1km (May 2010 to October 2015) – projectmap

= 20.6km

Eurovia refused to repair the bridges it built on D1 in Ostrava. Two bridges in question are in really bad shape and need reconstruction asap. RSD will issue a tender to have it done.

Despite mostly legislative delays by motorway and expressway construction it should be also noted, that nine out of twelve regional /kraj/ capitals are connected to the country capital Prague by motorway with nearing completition of D8 and D3 we can count another two. Also five biggest cities are motorway-interconnected to each other.

With part of the D3 under construction, completion is getting nearer, even if still quite far away.

The crucial ca 50 km stretch between Prague and Mezno (where the current D3 ends) doesn't seem to be built in the nearest future. Several NIMBYs and ecologists basically stopped the whole preparation process few years ago. Not even ŘSD gives any information on this stretch. And frankly speaking, their "to be built" informational leaflets contain many highway constructions that look like from the fantasy land.

RSD made public the new winners of two tenders for the construction of D3.

D3 Veselí - Bošilec => Strabag consorcium, CZK 635 mln

D3 Borek-Úsilné => Eurovia consorcium, CZK 715 mln

Skanska originally won both those tenders, they were open for bids already in 2012, with price around CZK 600 mln but the other companies appealed to the Competition authority and it cancelled the decision to award Skanska.

The other companies including Skanska can appeal to the Competition authority after this new decision.

Interesting, normally such appeals rarely succeed in court.
