The construction of the D1 in the 70s. Contemporary TV documentary (in Czech). It is quite descriptive about the used technology.

They should add some software video analysing system to raise alerts for such situation. It should be easy these days to implement something like this.

EDIT: The driver did not leave the cabin as was previously presented in the media.

With breaking distances of trains (especially fast trains like in this case), it would make very little difference

I think that the level crossing has to be designed as such that the lights start blinking and the bell ringing with enough time needed for the train to stop before the level crossing. I am not sure about how much time there would be for the train to stop from the moment the gates are down.

Let's say that the lights go on 60 seconds before the train would reach the crossing at full speed of 160 km/h. That means 2.67 kms at full speed. That is more than enough for the passenger train to stop from 160 km/h.

The Czech Railways operate with braking distance of 1 km on the 120 - 160 km/h sections.

A railway level crossing accident concerns much more the road traffic than the train traffic, as the culprits are overwhelmingly the drivers not respecting the signalling.

Although there has been long term positive trend in the number of accidents and deaths on the railway crossings http://www.ibesip.cz/data/web/soubor...i-prejezdy.pdf. In 2014 there were some 180 accidents with more than 40 deaths.

How dense is the traffic on the D1 from Brno to Prague on a saturday, mid-august? Coming from HU. Should i avoid the D1 or can I take the risk?

Yesterday I saw probably the longest traffic jam on D1 ever, in the direction Prague all the way from 196 km (D1-D2 junction) to 182 km. Don't know if the situation is the same on Saturday, probably not that dense. The rest of the motorway is OK.

Just wondering, how would you avoid taking D1 if you want to go from Brno to Prague?

Don't worry, nothing you would not encounter in Germany as well. I would most certainly not take any detours through local roads. Perhaps only if your GPS would strongly insist to do so.

That's only regarding the Prague-Brno section of D1. Then there are also works on 197.5-205.5 km and 205.5-211 km.

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

Late 2018...
I read in German media that the Czech Minister of Transport, Mr. Dan Tok, said again that D8 will be completed by the end of 2016. Should be published by "Hospodarske noviny" but I could find it online.

Can anyone confirm that it's announced and also likely to be open by late 2016?

Yes, for now it is still expected to be opened by late 2016 (technically it's possible). The 2018 statement was a mistake made by our prime mininster.

It's more, for instance a viaduct is missing too.
