Interesting plans. The outer ring already has several '2 loop adjacent' interchanges, prioritizing movements to/from outside the ring:

https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...1!4d14.4378005
https://www.google.co.uk/maps/place/...1!4d14.4378005

Do you have a higher resolution version of that map, or plans of the future interchanges? I'd be interested to see how some of the rest of the interchanges would be completed, like these:

The outer ring is quite well visualized (in detail) in the most detailed Czech mapping system www.mapy.cz. The plans for the south-east part of the ring are already incorporated in the maps. The northern parts are not displayed as their paperwork is much less definite.

Thanks for that. Interesting that at least two more of the interchanges will be to the 2 loop design. Already Czechia has the highest proportion of this type in the EU (40%): http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1944097

This is how the missing section of D8 looks like right now (video of drive through in the link). It should be opened next week.

^some nice pics of the missing link from the D8 when you click "Dalších 18 fotek" just right of the photo a Winter Wonderland gallery will open ;-)

The missing link itself will open on saturday, as most of you probably already know.

How will they monitor it for future landslides ?

I travelled through Czech rep. recently on my trip to Romania. Its getting better each time, but more than the nice almost empty strech from Chomutov to Prague where its already finished, i was happy about the increasing number of nicely rebuilt Prague-Brno motorway (and Brno-Bratislava also). In comparison to 2012 its a huge deal done already.

The D8 will open only in one lane. There's been recorded movement of the slope. Says idnes.cz

So they won't be enlarging it to 3 lanes?

Is it safe to open this road even in one lane?

No, the motorway won`t be widened to 3+3 profile.

However, the Mitteldeutsche Rundfunk (MDR) shared much of interesting information (a sort of timeline with pics and videos). All in German but who cares, I like the multimedia report

I wonder if they can open D8 for a long time or if it has to close soon due to the unstable slope.

Below is a satellite image from 2014, just after the slide. It clearly went across both carriageways. Later satellite imagery suggests they cleared the slide, built some stabilization structures alongside the motorway, but did not change the route of D8.

Google Earth also shows the slide did not only block D8, but also a railroad. It is still blocked as of the April 2016 imagery.

The whole area is unstable, the instability goes further to the elevated part. There's the problem right now. They recorded again depression of the pillars if I understand it correctly. The whole area is being monitored constantly. The prime minister commented they might have to close it indeed. Puppet theatre, thats what it is.

As of now it has been opened, but for how long? Imagine anything would happen....

This will become a money black hole. The stable rock bed starts 40 meters under the surface. How can you anchor 3 km of motorway on a unstable slope with 40 m long pillars... safe proof against a landslide... impossible. The pillars as of now are several meters deep, but when the ground under them is sliding... its like slicing a cream cake with a knife.

^ When you click the link above you can see a map. On the map a yellow, green and red line. Blue is the Elbe river, orange is the "dangerous area."

I don't know who created the map and what the sources were but it says

Yellow line: geologically best route to build D8
Green line: ecologically best route to build D8
Red line: were they have build D8

So there are two slide areas. The problematic one today is the old slide. MDCR says the D8 is reduced to single lane traffic over the east bridge here.

The actual problematic spot is right in the middle, just above the "2016 Digital" text .

That looks like an embankment.
