Regarding the fact that Czech government has a great budget surplus and very high currency reserves I guess they should have huge money in disposition
and with almost full employment rate this trend is going to continue,
I think we should expect big investments in infrastructure too.
Do you think this is going to happen soon as Czech Rebublic became
really rich country last years so it`s starnge to see such little construction ?

Trupman, you cannot dispute the fact, that I/44 has the highest elevation among the first class roads in the whole Czechia, mate. If you found some other fact incorrect, I will be glad to thank you for the correction. How about then to post some news about Czech roads/motorways, it seems that a lot is going to happen?

I can dispute it simply to the fact that it's not true.
I/22 reaches 1,019 m ca. 7 km NE to Železná Ruda and I/27 reaches 1,081 m exactly on the border with Germany.

Several sources claim I/44 to be the highest, like https://www.kr-olomoucky.cz/silnice-...lity-6762.html, or https://e-petice.cz/magazin/myslenka...pet-ozila.html, nevertheless thanks for correction.

Oh man when you try to correct someone, just do it right
The highest one is I/25 near Boží Dar that reaches 1081 m at the border. The name of the road NE of Železná Ruda is I/27 with 1019 m, road I/44 at Červenohorské sedlo tops at 1008 m in an artificial cut, road I/4 near Kubova Huť reaches 1003 m. Others do not reach elevation of 1000 m.

BTW the lowest one is I/62 at Hřensko with 107 m.a.s.l.

These "very high currency reserves" are the national bank's reserves and are not on government's disposal.

Some random pictures of the D1 motorway and I/35, I/46, I/52.

1. I'll start where I left off in the Polish thread. On the D1 after the border crossing. Just like in Katowice, the surface on this motorway also looks smooth, but in some parts before Ostrava felt really bumpy. At one place there were even installed signs with a 60 km/h speed limit , and as I heard, these signs are there for a few months now.. Anyway, all three largest cities in CZ in one sign.


2. In Ostrava. Also heavy industry based city.


3. Tunnel near Klimkovice.


4. We might see Slovakia in this picture.


5. Near Olomouc on the I/35. Damn those E4xx numbers are hilarious.


I did not photograph the U/C segment of the D1 before Olomouc (bad weather).

6. On the I/46 after Olomouc. Views are quite scenic here.


7. Stau due to road works. Example how to give road to a operational vehicle.

Dat Škoda, again!

8. Again on the D1 after Vyškov. Signage is my personal 2nd favorite after German.


9. A Škoda tram in Brno on the I/52.


10. Getting closer to Austrian border.


11. Mikulov town in the background.


On the way back from Austria, this road after Mikulov was closed for an unknown reason. We had to drive on the I/40 via Břeclav up to D2, to reach Brno. Maybe someone here knows what the reason was. Our version was that, due to heavy rain fall the road got flooded at the place where it goes through the lake.

On the weekend 10/06-11/06 was the I/52 road closed due to roadworks on the bridge across the Nové Mlýny dam. See link.

We might see Slovakia in this picture.
No, still long way to Slovakia. According to your position the hills seen on your picture should be Moravskoslezské Beskydy range with Radhošť mountain somewhere on the left.

I agree, I think the Czech signage is the best among capitalized fonts in Europe.

D1 will be a hell. There are some 4-5 sections u/c that are +5 km long but if you plan it closely maybe you can find secondary roads at those u/c sites.

There was a lot of traffic at some points especially on the other direction. I drove on a Sunday, so most people were returning to Prague from a short holiday. At some points the traffic on the other side was stop-and-go, but just due to congestion as there was no accident or anything else.

There were also works ongoing for the construction of D3 motorway from it's current southernmost point until Ceske Budejovice. In some places it looked close to completion, but on other sections they still have a lot to do. The motorway follows mostly the same path as I/3 main road.

Hmm, the table on the right indicates July 2017 but the text on the left...

Google translated:
The complete completion of all the works is expected 10/2018, commissioning in the second half of 2017.
I found a video from late June 2017:



Is there any news about the estimated opening?

According to the guys from ceskedalnice.cz, it could be in the first two weeks of September. However, next month should be opened D11 Praskacka - Hradec Kralove and new first class road I34 section Božejov - Pelhřimov.
