They are already driving 150 there mostly. Of course, raising the official limit to 150 would mean they drive 170 then

Like me. Not because of economy, but because I'm a rubbish driver I get bored easily, and being bored at 115-120km/h isn't much of a danger, but being bored at 150km/h+...well.

He also repeated the Czech promise to open the D8 motorway connecting Prague and Dresden by end-2018.

Late 2018...

Yeah, we are a nation of mostly rich people who can mostly afford strong cars and excessive litres of burnt fuel.

That was the start of construction of some partial sections. The whole Lovosice-Řehlovice D8 had several problems with complaints raised by ecologists and greenpeace-like organizations. In fact, the construction of all parts of the highway got a permission in 2012. And then the landslide in 2013 happened. And the ŘSD was clueless.

You can see for yourself in Google Earth. There are parts which are very near to be finished (if it wasn't for the landslide) and then there are parts which had to be postponed due to complaints and the construction started very late. Saying they've been constructing it continuously for 11 years is not really true and makes the constructors look incompetent.

What you describe is not really different from Germany, they often start construction on the bridges that won't be used for years before the rest of the route becomes completed. For example on A33 Bielefeld - Osnabrück they've built bridges in the fields that were completed in 2013 while the route won't come into service until 2017 or later.

Skanska won the tender on construction of 14 km Přerov – Lipník nad Bečvou section of D1 with price 2,7 bln CZK and 10 years guaranty. The projected price was 4,97 bln CZK, the offered winning price is more than 40 % lower.

ŘSD should make a decision based on the results of the tender commission and inform the contenders. If no one appeals the decision the construction could commence in June.

Good news.

Quote:
Press release of the European Commission from 11th May 2015

The Commission invests €4.7 billion to improve transport infrastructure in the Czech Republic

The European Commission adopted today the 2014-2020 Operational Programme for “Transport” in the Czech Republic, for the improvement of transport infrastructures across the country.
With a total budget of €5.4 billion, with €4.7 billion from the Cohesion Fund and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), the programme aims to upgrade the existing road and railway infrastructure and to develop adequate and sustainable transport networks in the country. It will be a key tool to implement national transport strategies. More than €1 billion is planned to be used for green and sustainable transport modes.
Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Crețu said: "The key strategic transport links that will be developed thanks to European funding will link the regions in the Czech Republic with each other but also with the Trans-European Network that crosses the European continent. This will make them more accessible and attractive for business and investment. The Czech citizens will also benefit from safer, greener and more sustainable transport. "

Some of the expected impacts include:
* 140km of reconstructed or upgraded railway lines
* 8km of new or upgraded metro or tram lines
* 140 new or upgraded mobile rail assets
* 95km of new motorways and expressways on the TEN-T network
* 15,000 kW additional capacity for recharging of e-vehicles
* 40km new or upgraded major roads in the regions
* Fewer accidents in urban areas due to the deployment of intelligent transport systems (ITS)

Background
The main priorities of this investment package are:
* Infrastructure for railway and other modes of sustainable transport: almost €2.4 billion (51% of the budget)
* Road infrastructure on the TEN-T network and public infrastructure for clean mobility: €1.3 billion (28% of the budget)
* Road infrastructure outside TEN-T: €0.9 billion (19% of the budget)
* Technical Assistance: €70 million (1.5 % of the budget)

First calls for proposals under the programmes are expected in the course of 2015.
On 26 August 2014, the European Commission adopted a "partnership agreement" with the Czech Republic setting out the strategy for optimum use of European Structural and Investment Funds in the country for 2014-2020 (IP-14-947).
The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) aims to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by reducing imbalances between its regions. The ERDF will invest more than €197 billion in the regions of Europe throughout 2014-2020.
The Cohesion Fund was set up to provide a financial contribution to projects in the fields of environment and trans-European networks in the area of transport infrastructure. It is intended for countries whose per capita Gross National Income (GNI) is below 90% of the Community average.

Still, this won't fix the legislative problems with new infrastructure constructions.
The new law about environmental impacts of constructions came into force recently. It allows to raise protests even during EIA process, therefore there is a risk that many projects will take even longer preparation time before the construction starts.

The RMD can begin building the penultimate missing motorway section D1 Přerov – Lipník nad Bečvou. There wasn`t any objection to the results of the tender in the legally prescribed period. The contractor is the company Skanska a. s.
