The thread name (given it is in English) should be changed to the correct form of Czechia. (Česko). So that it matches the naming convention of all the other threads.
It should be: [CZ] Czechia | road infrastructure • České Dálnice

Czechia is listed in the United Nations´ databases “UNTERM” and “UNGEGN” as the official short name of the Czech Republic.

Google maps shows Czechia.

Wikipedia will change to Czechia some time this year to match international naming standards.

Czechia is the English short-form name for Czech Republic much like Slovakia is the short for name for the Slovak Republic. Every major language has their own correct short form version for Czech Republic. For English it is Czechia.

Quote:
The decision about the name “Czechia” has been made by those who are qualified by the law to make it. November 2014 statement of the Terminological Committee of the Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadaster states: “According to the article 3 of Act 1994/200 on Land Surveying, the standardization of names of settlement and non-settlement units is a land surveying activity in public interest and its results and recommendations should be followed by national and local state institutions. The position of the Terminological Committee of the Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadaster, an advisory authority of the Czech Office for Surveying, Mapping and Cadaster for the codification of country names, on the use of the name Česko and its foreign language variants (Czechia, Tschechien, Tchéquie, Chequia…) is positive. This position on the use of the one-word name Česko and its equivalents in foreign languages has not changed since 1993. The experts unequivocally recommended the use of “Czechia” in English and its variants in other language (Tschechien, Tchéquie, Chequia etc.). This is not an opinion but the outcome of the process of standardization.”
Lets get it over with and make the change. Czechia is logical, its the correct short form name, and believe me as a native English/Czech speaker its so much more pleasant and easy to use. It also takes no time to get used to it.

Also the reason I ask for the change is that standardization is good and every bit helps. Including correcting the thread title that has been viewed/clicked on 877,868 times. This does not include casual glaces of people who don't open the thread up.

Either way is fine with me but the letter "D" in the name of the thread ought to be lower case. It's either "České dálnice" if it's supposed to be the name of this thread in Czech or "české dálnice" simply meaning motorways in said country.

EDIT: Cool. Thanks.

Not about nothing. I wanted to be clear and provide convincing and accurate information. Changing names is a big thing. Czechia is now here to stay. Google is in the process of updating ALL their databases to reflect the new name (where countries short form name is used, i.e. anywhere France is used Czechia will also be used). Be it Youtube, Google maps, Google Flights, some obscure drop down on one of the hundreds of thousands of webpages that use Google to run their pre populated country name drop downs. It will all show Czechia before the year is up. On top of this the Czech sports teams when using English will use Czechia moving forward. I even forgot to mention that ISO 3166 standard published by the International Organization for Standardization uses Czechia. UN of course. US state department. List goes on.

Czechia is now here to stay, and frankly Google will be the biggest catalyst of the rapid change we will see. Its not just Google products but half the web runs of their databases.

Anyways thanks for changing the title. Trust me you will all get used to it and eventually wonder why you kept using the long form name for so long (in English).

That`s only single carriageway reconstruction, not both.

Motorways maintenance 2017

About 72 km of motorways should be reconstructed this year, according to ŘSD, however, in both directions. This number does not count D1 modernisation between Mirošovice and Kývalka. It seems, that this year the important focus will be on sections near two major cities, Prague and Brno.

The name "Czechia" is fine in informal conversations, but it looks a bit silly in the title.

Shall we change the Slovenian thread to "Republic of Slovenia" as "Slovenia" is too informal?

There's been no renaming aside from the renaming of the thread title.

Czechia is still the Czech Republic, it hasn't been renamed. It simply got an additional version of its name. A short version. A version of its name already existing in many languages.

Surprisingly, its not so hard to get used to it. I guess the Dutch language played a role in my case , not a big deal when you use it already almost everyday anyway. Tsjechië or Czechia, who cares. Czechlands would be cool, but we are not in the middle ages anymore...

Yes, Czech Republic wasn't renamed, it simply got its short name, like all other European countries.
On the opposite, Hungary cancelled its old long name (Republic of Hungary) 4-5 years ago.
