They should not have been as parallel initially. For quite long the planned border crossing was a bit further west: near Laa an der Thaya (the old RAB 88 was also planned to go through there). Mikulov actually emerged as the final border crossing of D52 quite recently (recently as like 10-15 years ago) following negotiations with Austrians.

D2 via Mikulov or somewhere in between could not be done. There's UNESCO world heritage site "Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape" between Mikulov and Břeclav. Exteremely lovely region btw. Even commies who otherwise wouldn't shed a tear on demolishing entire historical towns to access a bit of coal wouldn't dare to touch it.

communists are pigs. But they would have destroyed this site also, there was just nothing like coal to be found :-/

Btw when I mentioned the exterritorial motorway Wien-Breslau (RAB 88), there is a two volume ŘSD document on it:

Vol 1 (north of Brno part)
Vol 2 (south of Brno part, in the general direction of D52)

Some info on it may be also found in this document about motorway planning and construction in Czech lands before and during WW2. It focuses mainly on the Prague-Brno-Slovakia motorway, but there is some info on the exterritorial as well as Sudetenland motorways too.

It's been said before, but it actually makes sense to have the D52 running parallel there. If you draw a line on the map from Wroclaw to Vienna, you can see that the most logical route would run to the west of Brno, so traffic heading towards Poland from Vienna/further south wouldn't mix with traffic from Bratislava/Budapest/points further south.

The problem is that the Czechs see no purpose in such a road cutting across the interior.

The project page has been updated in June. Construction beginning is announced for July 2016. Completion November 2017.

In addition, I read in German media that building permits have recently been approved.

Is it likely that construction works will begin in the coming weeks?

According to the project page (18th July version), construction works should begin in September 2016. Estimated completion date: September 2020.


Edit: Generally, it seems that almost all motorway/expressway projects are delayed (again) by some months or even years compared to early 2016.

Czechia had some problems with EIA issued before 2004 which were non compliant with EU law. Only recently, UE commission only recently agreed non to repete the whole EIA procedure re: some sections.

2025 was the plan, but the Czechs have made it clear that they won't build it in full profile unless Slovakia agrees to also build the R5 in full profile.

I wouldn't hold out much hope for anything other than the R5 being built in half profile and for the Trinec bypass to be built in the same way as the Mosty u Jablonkova bypass.

Construction of section Třanovice (D48) - Nebory should start next year.
Section Nebory - Oldřichovice - Bystřice is under construction in full profile and should be ready in September 2017. It more or less forms a Třinec bypass.
The rest of the road (Bystřice - border) is already built as a grade-separated half-profile expressway.

This is what a modernized D1 looks like.
- Section 14 between Jihlava and Větrný Jeníkov

Why does the surface look so bad and not like 0:07 ? Frankly, I was expecting to see some dark fresh low-noise asphalt. Maybe its concrete plates. I might be wrong.

Yes, it is a concrete surface. Asphalt is used only on bridges.

I see. Well its a trade-off, concrete is more durable but less silent than asphalt.

An Italian company Toto S.p.a. Costruzioni Generali placed the cheapest offer for a modernization of D1 between EXIT 90 Humpolec and EXIT 104 Větrný Jeníkov.
