Opava bypass

Construction of an eastern part of northern bypass of Opava began on Monday. Although the lenght is just 1,7 km, it will detour the transit traffic from the city center of the 58k settlement. Quite extensive pyrotechnical research was performed on the site, as this was the place of one of the biggest WWII battlefields on Czech territorry. It is a part of the road I/11 with planned opening in January 2020.





Here is visualisation, including western part of bypass, which should be constructed around 2020:

Comparison of 2010 and 2016 AADT on the Czech roads.
https://www.rsd.cz/wps/portal/web/rs...2-cff1c350e70b

The pictures is quite big, therefore I post a link: https://www.rsd.cz/wps/wcm/connect/5...2-75db79c41b6d The 2016 values are depicted in yellow/green colour.

The souther part of Prague ring AADT is around 40-50 thousand, part between Slivenec – Třebonice reaching 75 thousands AADT.

The highest volume is on D1 in Prague with 99,300 vehicles per day.

Though Městský Okruh is / was busier.

It is astonishing how the traffic surged on D10. I guess there might be other factors, than production increase in Škoda Mladá Boleslav.

Do you have any information on when the Znojmo bypass Section III (i.e. the one coming from Austria) will be started?

With the Lechovice bypass, and Austria hopefully this year starting with the extension of S3 from Hollabrunn to Guntersdorf (almost all of the paperwork is done, especially the "environmental impact assessment" is confirmed by a court), this will turn into a nice alternative route from north/west of Vienna to Brno...

That ecoduct was mentioned as one of the worst-planned in Europe, as it is located right near some big-box stores.

Rudi, 2019 is the preliminary planned date for construction start for Znojmo bypass section 3, with planned opening in 2023. Now the tender for documentation for building permit is running. Here is the link to actual information leaflet of ŘSD, the leaflet is constantly updated:

Chris, I did not find any English source about this fact of Jenišov ecoduct. Czech sources are critical for sure, but they are mostly critical for many issues public, or government orientated. Yes, they mention this ecoduct as redundant, not because it is in the very proximity of urban area, but because the regional planning was recently not in accordance with motorway corridor planning. However, on Prague ring D0 there are five ecoducts. Press also states, that Czechia has one of the highest density of ecoducts per motorway kilometer in Europe.

@rudiwien: A5 in Austria opens this year, why would you want an alternative route that is much longer?

I wrote "from north/west of Vienna to Brno", maybe that was ambiguous, that doesn't necessarily mean only from within Vienna.

Imagine you are coming from St. Pölten and want to go to Brno or further towards Poland, no need to go from S5 to A22 and S1 to A5, but you could go up the S3 and via Znojmo.

Of course with the A5 completed to Poysbrunn, you'd be faster than the route above as it is now. But with the extended S3 and the two bypasses in Czech, it is again very competitive, and most importantly, completely skips the motorways close to Vienna (such as A22)

I found it again: http://praguemonitor.com/2016/09/14/...-dysfunctional
The average price of Czech wildlife crossings is often higher than in other European countries and they are often built so badly that they hardly serve their original purpose

There are seven ecoducts built especially on the 20 kilometres of the by-pass road around Prague. The wildlife crossings there contributed to the Prague Ring becoming the most expensive motorway in the Czech Republic, MfD writes. However, even the most fervent environmentalists are wondering what big mammals are ready to enter the area of the Czech capital, it adds. The deer, for whom the Czech ecoducts are primarily built, will hardly ever do so, MfD writes.

There are some green bridges in the Czech Republic that were designed in a right place, but no one watched what would be going on around them. Due to this, their function has gradually vanished, MfD writes. This is exemplified by the animal bridge over the D6 motorway near Jenisovice, West Bohemia.

Next to the bridge, there is now a large shopping mall, which, naturally, deters the animals from the wild from entering the ecoduct, it adds.
There are also ecoducts which may be functional, but their location or design are far from being optimal, MfD writes.

The article is IMHO right in the fact, that planning of ecoducts should be in accordance with regional development plans, otherwise it is nothing but redundant investment. Regarding costs it is questionable, as in CZ and SK are often in the price for motorway included indulged investments, the local representatives often dont want to approve the sction without them and this sometimes higher the price.

It is also important, that ecoducts will be maintained, eg. no big bushes and trees will be allowed to grow on it, fence around will be in order and the animals should be protected from the lights and noise from the motorway.

Anyway, by browsing an original article, this is the map of the existing and planned ecoducts in Czechia. New ones are planned to be constructed on D1 between Jihlava and Brno, the motorway was planned in the 60ies and beginning of 70ies, even before, where designers just did not incorporate them.

I think that these are the most recent aerial maps of the Czech Republic.

The construction of D1 around Přerov is visible. You need to click on "Změnit mapu" Chose "Ortofoto" and then you need to zoom in on Přerov.
http://geoportal.cuzk.cz/geoprohlizec/

Two galleries with photos from the construction of D1 between Přerov and Lipník.
