I agree. I've been driving around the Czech Republic this summer (after many years) and although the network is beign upgraded, the quality of motorways (asphalt) is very bad, especially the part from Ostrava to Brno. The motorways from Prague to Germany (Dresden) or D11 to Hradec Kralove are not much better either. However, the S-roads are in very good condition, I liked driving on them. It seems I didn't drive on any brand new motorway section.

Are you sure the way from Brno to Ostrava is very bad...? I'm driving that part quite often and I consider the quality of pavement much better than D1 from Prague to Brno. If the traffic allows, I can keep 150 kmph safely although the gradient and radius slows me down sometimes...

D1 from Brno to Vyskov is covered by terrible concrete pavement
R46 from Vyskov to Olomouc is quite fine (asphalt)
R35 from Olomouc to Lipnik is nice concrete

I/48 is not a motorway/expressway although it is 4-laned (2x2). The speed limit is 90 kmph. This road is already upgraded to Motorway in some parts but mostly is not.

This whole stretch will be bypassed by brand new D1 soon.

I took R46 and then D1 from Olomouc to Brno. I don't remember exactly which part was bad, but some on this itinerary. D8 and D11 where also in quite bad shape. I didn't take D1 between Prague and Brno because I went via Hradec Kralove and Litomysl. Anyway, I noted a big difference in quality betweeen D/R and S roads, which surprised me.

Man, what are you talking about? In Poland we pay 62 euro cents tax in every liter of fuel + 32 euro cents VAT and only 12% of the first tax goes for road constructions and maintanance. It means that every car users subsidizes european socialism.

May be Polish socialism, not European... In Czech Rep fuel tax + VAT + toll is far from pouring enough money into construction of new and maintenance of old roads. May be Poland still invest small amount of money if 12% of these is enough for construction and maintenance.

I assume it will take a while before we have an actual Praha - Linz motorway, right?

Not before 2015. I think that after D1 (built as D47) is almost finished (2010), there will be another prefered roads: R1 (Prague outer ring), D1 extention to 2x3 near Brno and R35 to create a 2nd way from west to east.

Major problem of D3 are environmental issues south of Prague without final route location until very recently and with huge nimby opposition still in place.

you are wrong.

forget the VAT (thats a common tax on every product and service) and check the yearly petrol consumption of your country.
then multiply it with the fuel tax.

this sum is so huge that it would be enough to build 2-3 times more roads...

In Estonia 75% of fuel taxes must be invested in roads.

Wow, excluding VAT as a fuel tax, that should mean Dutch investments would jump from 2.8 billion to 10.8 billion. I never see that happening.

I haven't heard anything of the D8 recently. When is the missing link in this highway planned to open? Or am I just crazy and is it already opened?
