Of course, but that's intended! The toll must be calculated that the required funding is available with the lowest toll. If it's too low, it must be raised.

A tender was launched for the southernmost section of Polish S3 motorway. It will be a continuation of Czech D11.
This section of S3 should be completed in about 5 years (long time because it is a mountainous terrain with tunnels). What is the possible date for completion of D11?

Up to Jaroměř the sections are construction tendered and under archeological works with planned construction start in autumn. From Jaroměř there are two D11 sections, Jaroměř - Trutnov and Trutnov - border, about the lenght of 20 km each. Section Trutnov - border CZ/PL is more challenging, but it seems the construction start will be much sooner. Planned opening of the section Jaroměř - Trutnov is 2024 with construction start 2022 and construction start for Trutnov - border is 2019, if approvals will proceed smoothly. Regarding D11/S3 connection is Poland ahead with border section possible construction start next year, Czechia could start its border connection in 2019.

I/3 Mirošovice – Benešov now 2+1



On June 2, the construction works were completed at about 12,5 km section of I/3 Mirošovice – Benešov.
The works comprised adaptation of the section to 2+1 undivided lanes, then adaptation of three interchanges, now the whole section interchanges are fully grade separated, then partially widening of road and prolonging of exit and entrance ramps. Construction works lasted about a year.

I/3 is one of the busiest first class roads in Czechia with AADT about 24.500 in the near of Benešov. As next I/3 consctruction section will be Olbramovice bypass, already several months tendered.

It's a great upgrade, but I think they should've really gone for a divider as well. But the guess that perhaps there was not enough space, i.e. acquiring that extra meter would complicate the process enormously? Or would it require more than that? I.e. there would be needed wider shoulders as well then?

Also I would rather see divided 2+2, or at least 1+2 all the route, the section is also known to be one of the most accidental in entire country. New jersey profile all the route could be the solution, it does not need any special documentation approvals.

But no sign of D3 in this area. The fact that they are upgrading I/3 anyway shows perhaps how much priority D3 has?

It's good that they upgrade I/3, it would need to be upgraded also if D3 was already under construction (if only for the safety reasons). But all of these projects are in planning for many years. The discussion about enlarging I/3 went through already in 2004. Right now, they don't think that D3 will be under construction before ~2025.

They are not able to get further than the endless discussions about where en how. Giving priority to anything is just a worthless proclamation that doesn't have any foundation in the reality.

Sometimes I think that this enormous slackness and dullness in the process is simply to someone's benefit.

The infrastructure planning and construction in the Czech Republic is really in miserable state and although that there are some slight improvements, there's zero fresh wind. It's all quite disappointing and depressing. I could understand if all this would be a budget problem, if there would not be money to do all the investments. But that's simply not the problem, there's money enough. It's simple incompetence, that's all.

Na początku miesiąca zakończono rozbudowę 12,5km trasy I/3 Mirošovice – Benešov do przekroju 2+1 (naprzemiennie). Docelowo ten odcinek ma zastąpić autostrada D3, ale nie do końca wiadomo kiedy to będzie.
Zauważcie, że jest tam podwójna ciągła. Czesi niekoniecznie ją stosują

I would not say it's simple incompetence - it's just a combination of several factors contributing to all of this.

First there were governments literally "tunnelling" money from infrastructure project (until 2010) - these folks didn't have to deal with bad legislature (laws etc) because they were not afraid of anything.

Then a period of investigating and denying of all of the progress made by previous governments came into place. Many projects were put on hold or re-projected to find some savings - this lead to many incompetent decisions that made some project senseless.

Last three years are finally promising in restarting the planning and building process. Many progressive legal acts have been approved or are in approval process. On the other track - the investor - Road and Motorway Directorate - set a good pace in the planning and tendering process. The bad thing is that a real outcome (opening of new sections) can be seen at first in a few years period, it's not a matter of days or months.

Regarding the D3 motorway - EIA has been completed and zoning permit is to be issued now for the Prague - Tábor section. Taking the current legislature and experience into account, we can expect the real ground works around 2024...

Well, guys, I would assume, that until 2020 is modernisation of D1 a priority number one, with by far the biggest number of projects and resources, during 2020 - 2024 it will be D35 and a time for central Bohemian D3 comes in 2024 approximately. Other motorway sections are important as well, but these seem to be top priorities.

D35 as a second motorway connection between Bohemia and Moravia seems to have really higher priority, than central Bohemian D3, about six sections are planned to start in 2020 and they are approximately in the same stage of approvals and will run through difficult terrain. Similar seems to happen with northern D3, about five sections with about the same of approval and through different terrain as well. And until the D3 completition, which seems to be between 2028 and 2030, upgraded I/3, eventually D4 will take the traffic flow south from Prague.

Is it true that last section of D11 to the border is planned to be built sooner than few one before?

IMO all D35 should be built before D1 reconstruction. Why? Because it would take traffic from Moravia, middle and east part of Poland, Slovakia towards Praha or/end western Czechia.

Yep, the last section bypassing Trutnov and a narrow curvy section to the border shall be opened sooner than the last missing stretch between Jaroměř and Trutnov. There are some issues with neighbouring villages and ground waters. Personally I think that the I/37 road in this section is capable of withstanding the 3 years of heavy traffic despite its profile.

Yes I agree with what you wrote (@Mapman), there are some positive signs, but it takes so enormously long before anything changes. And I do not mean that I would need to see the actual construction right away, but I would say that 4 years is a long enough time to adjust, speed up and tune out the system so that it can work fast and efficiently and produce 100 km of tendered construction permits a year.

If there should be given a priority to anything, it should be just this. That the system works. There doesn't need to be some hard choosing between this project or that project. There's money enough to churn out 100 km of motorways every year. What is missing is the expertise and conditions for the planning, evaluations, zoning permits, buying the land etc. This should be the priority, not which section will be built first. If the system works, the whole network could be finished in 10 years time.

The country is losing an enormous amount of economic growth because of the missing infrastructure, and the politicians, as well as the state bureaucracy, are simply ignoring it instead of making it a political priority number one.

I/44 Cervenohorske mountain pass

Last Friday about 7,9 km section of completely modernised I/44 Červenohorské sedlo (Červenohorské mountain pass) south between Šumperk and Jeseník has been opened. Road I/44 is in this section with elevation of 1013 meters the highest elevated first class road in Czechia. It is a continuation of Červenohorské sedlo north, which had been modernised in 2008. Photos are from Metrostav facebook page.
The works encompassed new road layer, widening in bendings, construction of sections in which overtaking is possible, bridges reconstruction and steel barriers.










More pictures are here.

The whole process of motorways construction in the Czech Republic needed (needs) overhaul. What is the most striking is more than 10 years of dispute re: pre-2004' EIA on some sections and very ridiculous case of 10 (?) years of expropriation of land for D11 construction in area of Hradec Kralove. And this happens when the Czech Republic has a significant budget surplus which can easily be diverted in road construction.

Try this http://www.dopravniinfo.cz/Default.aspx?lang=en and select the layer "Closings" - the map will be more clear.
