I found this presentation from 2015 with some more up to date data.

There's been 8001 railway crossings under the management of SŽDC as of 2014, 4252 were just with a sign, 2180 with lights and 1172 with electronic gates, 359 with mechanical gates.

SŽDC fitted 22 gated railway crossings and scrapped 40 railway crossings in 2014.

There were 36 % of all the deaths on the gated railway crossings in 2014, while only 9 % on the railway crossings with signs only. There were 55 % of all the deaths on the railway crossings with lights.

From those graphs on page 27 seems that, accident wise, it doesn't make much sense to improve the sign only railway crossings, but it seems sensible to equip railway crossings that have lights also with gates as they show more than proportional number both of accidents and deaths (in the year 2014).

All in all however the biggest problem is the drivers' recklessness.

Hello everyone,

Quick question - I'm going to Liberec on Saturday to watch the Liberec-Mountfield hockey game, but looking on Google Maps shows that the road through Liberec (I/35?) is at least expressway standard. Do you need a Czech vignette there?

Hi, when coming from north (PL or D), you don't need a vignette. When coming from south (Turnov, Prague), you need it until the first exit in Liberec.

As of today all czech expressways (rychlostní silnice) have been renamed to motorways (2nd class) by law (268/2015 Coll.). In the next few weeks some sections will be officialy transformed from motorway category to 1st class road category - retaining the motorroad signs which now might be used for every 1st class road that is grade separated, access controlled and without properties directly attached to it. Those sections are former R35 Turnov - Liberec (with small section of R10 near Turnov), R63 Bystřany - Řehlovice, R7 Spořice - Nové Spořice and R6 Dvory - Jenišov.

The new motorway network will then look as follows:

What's their new numbering, R35, R63, R7 and R6 or D35, D63, D7 and D6 or I35, I63, I7 and I6?

Why are not all sections fulfilling the conditon, e.g. I11, in that category? I remember this (out-dated?) map.

The blue network on the aforementioned map shows sections of 1st class roads that are drafted by MoT as possible section for motorroad status. Transport departments at Regional Authorities are now entitled to approve the new signage. It is to be expected that majority of those new motorroads will be approved in the first half of 2016.

The designation is the same as the ordinary 1st class roads do have, e.g. I/7, I/63 etc. - it's the same as in Germany with those long motorroad sections of B6 or B2 etc.

There have been more deaths on the Czech roads in 2015 than in 2014. The previously positive trend changed already in 2014 when there were more deaths than in 2013. It was then the first increase since 2008.

year.....deaths
2015...669
2014...629
2013...583

Does it mean that Liberec-Turnov now becomes vignette-free?

Must admit, it seems a strange decision to remove Liberec from the motorway network.

Yes, it is toll free up to 3,5 t.

Problem with R35/S35 is that it contains many substandard features that can't be removed or rebulit in situ. I agree that it might look strange, but at least the whole section from Turnov through Liberec to Bílý Kostel (S35×S13 junction) will be maintainted and administrated in the same way.

Are they going to keep the expressway signs? Or are they going to change to motorway signs on them?

All motorways (including the "new" ones) are using new motorway sign (green), the expressway sign (blue) is on expressways with 110 km/h speed limit, for example R35 Turnov - Liberec, etc.

I bought a vignette in Liberec and drove with it in the glovebox all the way to Praha ring thinking since was an R road I didn't need it (must be my Polish head )
What a confusing setup...
