September update of I/11 Nebory - Oldřichovice - Bystřice. Section will be probably opened partially, half profile on at least one section, full profile in next few months:



















While opening of these sections is a matter of days and hours, next I/11 section, Ostrava-Krasne Pole – Ostrava-Poruba is delayed, completition previewed in November 2019. The reasons are legislative procedures for the last ca. 400 meters section, which is yet to be constructed, other parts of the section are completed.

The parliamentary election in Czechia happenned last weekend, results are official, however, almost in each political parties program motorways and roads play some important role.

Quote:
This year's election to the Chamber of Deputies is a candidate for a total of 31 subjects, EuroZprávy.cz has selected the largest political parties and their programs to find out how they want to expand the Czech motorway network in the forthcoming parliamentary term.

They state how many kilometers of motorways they want to build:

movement ANO 2011

The Andrej Babiš movement wants to enforce the Law on Land Communications, where it would be corrected to authorize key constructions so that it would take place within one office and one procedure "and it would not be possible to challenge this process indefinitely." By 2021, the movement promises 280 kilometers of new motorways, with 110 kilometers being a completely refurbished D1. "Another 220 km of motorways will be built, we will support the construction of large parking lots along the motorways, and it is not possible for the trucks to park in motorway strips," he said in a movement program.

TOP 09

Like the ANO 2011 also TOP 09 movement sets specific goals. In a year, the party would like to put at least 70 km of motorways into operation. At the same time, they would promote the so-called e-highway project, ie the electrification of the right lane of highways with a high proportion of freight traffic. Examples are the D1, D5 or D11 motorways. "Hybrid electric trucks would use electricity from the powertrain in the electrified sections, with significant savings in fuel and a significant reduction in emissions," they said. Like the ODS, it would enforce a new building law that will facilitate the implementation of all types of buildings.

Czech Pirate Party

Pirates are calling for a "restart" of a conceptual construction of the motorway network. "Planning must be done independently of the willing politicians with clear targets and criteria for success, just by 2040, the 1000 km of motorways needed to arrive," they said. The goal should also be to facilitate the transparency of an organization such as the Road and Motorway Directorate dealing with transport infrastructure. "We want long-term guarantees and controls for every public contract," says the Czech Pirate Party.

Green Party

The Greens wants the new government to complete the interconnection of a highway network that already exists.

Mayors and independents

In particular, the STAN movement wants to complete a basic motorway network, specifically mentioning the following links: completion of the D1 motorway sections, completion of the Prague Ring Road, motorway from Hradec Králové to Jaroměř and then to Poland, communications from Prague via České Budějovice to Austria, from Pardubice to Olomouc; also communication from Brno to the Austrian metropolis.

KDU-ČSL

Christian Democrats call for simplification and reduction of administrative burden in the field of investor preparation and implementation of key transport infrastructure.

CSSD

Social democrats wants to push for the adoption of the Law on Line Structures and calls for an accelerated development of the motorway network. "Today, the Czech Republic will suffer from the fact that it has underestimated the construction and purchase of land in the past, and we will introduce accelerated permitting procedures, unification of legal matters and administrative processes under one authority and clear rules for the settlement of legitimate claims by landowners, especially farmers and smaller farmers, "says the party.

ODS

Conservatives would also approve the motorways to the completion of the motorways. Specifically, they want to enforce the law on priority constructions for which it currently considers the following: D35, D43, Prague Circuit, D3, D6 and the high-speed line Dresden-Prague-Brno-Ostrava and Prague-Pilsen-Munich.

KSČM

The Communists also want to complete the motorway infrastructure, they would like to simplify the legislation for preparation for the preparation and implementation of transport structures.

ODA

Renewed ODA of billionaire Paul Sehnal does not specify which motorways are a priority for them, but at the same time declares that it will spend more money on the purchase of land for transport construction and thus speed up their implementation.

SPD

The Tomio Okamura movement does not address the issue of the motorway network in the program.

I/37 Pardubice - Trojice

Opening of road I/37 Pardubice – Trojice is planned on November 2, basically it is an addition of the second lane to estacade above railway station in Pardubice city center. The one kilometer section is collision free, however, on both ends are roundabouts, so it classifies the section as city communicarion. Pictures by martas from ceskedalnice.cz.

Also can youse guys choose a more garish, straight-out-of-the-70s color scheme for your sound barriers?

I also drove the Hwy 11 to Opava but didn't take any photos. The new dual carriageway is quite nice. A bit twisted but without the ugly sound barriers and offering nice views, especially approaching Opava.

How about fixing the bad surface on the D1? Any news about the progress of this saga?

Is that dangerously bumpy pavement still not repaired? Really a shame, because not much work is needed.

D1 Ostrava-Bohumín


The complete reconstruction won't begin until the court decision. Estimated costs are 2 000 000 000 CZK!

It is really bad in places. There are speed limits but someone unfamiliar with the road might ignore the 60kph sign in the middle of the motorway. I would recommend sticking to it. In one place one could fly from the bump

Is there any time-frame when it might happen?

Also, can't the road authority repair the road and then get the money from the past contractor in the court case? I guess by now all the evidence was secured. Just repair the damn road and send bill to the original contractor. Leaving it in current shape is simply dangerous.

I'm wondering why they just don't temporary repair few most obvious bumps where you can really fly into the air if you drive over 100 km/h. A weekend or two of one lane closures and few million CZK on the cost of original contractor would be enough for most problematic sections.

That's what have been done in Poland on the DW902 between Zabrze and Gliwice. There are issues there with the embankment material which is changing its volume and deforming the surface.

They keep repairing road temporarily (mostly by milling the surface layer), before the long term solution can be applied.

Czech road authority could do something similar. Or, since the court case here seems to be dragging forever, I don't understand why they don't repair the road from their own funds and then bill the company which they are keep arguing with in court.

A bit of imagination and forward thinking is clearly needed here. This road is in such bad shape for couple of years now. We are not talking about a few weeks or months.

Completion of the entire ring? Nope. The construction of the next section might begin in 2020 (at the earliest).

We had a similar problem in the Netherlands on two motorway sections where they used slag as an experimental recycled foundation for the motorway. It was found that the slag would expand over time, creating bumps.

They milled the surface every time, but at some point there was almost no asphalt layer remaining. They had to completely rebuild the foundation of those sections (A27 and A32). Luckily it was only used on two sections less than 10 kilometers long on motorways with manageable traffic volumes.

D1 in Ostrava has many other issues like using only 60% steel on bridges due to which they are twisting and simply need replacement while two concrete bridges fell from its bearings. In general the problem arose from fact that contracts for construction and supervision were won by the same company which was cutting corners everywhere it could accompanied by politicians so in result whole stretch needs to be build from scratch to achieve proper parameters. Generally I am surprised that this case isn't investigated on European level because of possible corruption, mismanagement of public funds and local politics meddling in this case. All who were fighting in this case from RSD side were either silenced or fired!

Which contractor built that section of D1? Wasn't it Eurovía or Metrostav of some sorts?

The contractor was "Ostravské dopravní stavby" ODS. This company has been bought by Eurovia CS, that is the legal successor of ODS...

As a matter of fact, two of the bumpy sections will be closed on Thursday (only in the left lane) for safety reasons. Repair might follow in next weeks/months if weather enables it...
