Hi, I'm travelling this summer to the Czech Republic, what's the condition of the actual road between Hradec Kralove and Olomouc? Another question: are there any new constructed sections between Brno and Vienna?

Where exactly are you going? If I were you, I would try to avoid using that road between Hradec and Olomouc.

Unfortunately, there's no new stretch between Brno and Vienna

Well, I'm coming from Dresden to Prague, and I wanted to go then to Hradec Kralove, Olomouc, Brno and then to continue towards Vienna... Is this road between Hradec and Olomouc really that bad?

Check out this post... there's no highway, the road is often going through cities, villages... there's too many trucks and cars... I dont like that road. Although the norths route is little bit shorter, I always use the south one using D1.

But at least the nature is beautiful, the pavement is good and the road is wide. Such wide roads are almost non-existent in Slovenia (except for 500 km of motorways and expressways). I don't think we have more than 600 km of wide roads here.

Well, I did not take any pictures of narrow parts since it was not safe... I think just 1/2 half of that road is wide as you can see in the pictures. But, some parts are the 1/2 profile of planned R35, e.g. here:



People are crazy, I drove 110 - 120 kmph and a lot of people overtook me anyway...

Ok, but already this road is wide for Slovenian standards (excluding motorways and expressways):

And this is a typical major ordinary 2-lane road in Slovenia (G8 Ljubljana - Villach) - not narrow, but not wide either:

I know, we both have Jesenice.

I don't think 600 km of wide roads (including motorways and expressways) is that bad for Slovenia, but it tells you what kind of a road infrastructure we had before we had (so many) motorways and expressways.

Heh.. Jesenice

How old is that road? As far as I know, part of road I/35 from Hradec to Olomouc and most of the newly built (or rebuilt) 1st class roads are S11,5/100 cathegory which means the width is grand-scaled.

^ If you mean the H1 Ljubljana - Zagreb, it's quite old. I don't know when exactly it was completed, but according to a book I have here, they started building it in 1958 (Dálnice bratrství a jednoty ). But beside this road, the only old (before 1970s) wide road I know of was the road Kranj - Medvode (halfway old road to Ljubljana (now R211)), and that's just 10 km. Perhaps there were some more, but not many for sure.
