Yes, it should be done in December 2010. Construction started in 2007 and the stretch is in different stages of construction. All bridges and tunnels are in progress, but in some parts of the route is just an archeological exploration. There are some problems with the whole route of highway (excluding bridges and tunnels), because an appeal against building approval is solving.

You can see the poster from highway directorate (in czech) with nice map and technical parameters here

and some photos

Great videos on The City Ring of Prague (a 33 km long urban expressway around the city center, 1/3 out of it in tunnels) and on Blanka tunnels in particular (a part of it currently u/c).

Recommended.

Aerial photos of various construction sites of Blanka tunnels (a 5,5 km long tunnel complex, incl. underground interchanges):

Nice pics! I see normal crashbarriers over here. No steel ropes like on another new highway in CZ we've seen pics of before?

There is not much spreaded the usage of steel ropes (egg-cutters). It´s only on some stretches (for. example D8 between Roudnice and Lovosice). For newely planed highways, there are always normal crashbarriers.

Another thing is, when it´s on some 2x2 stretches of 1st class road. In my opinion it´s quite dangerous, because if you hit the rope, it will soften your impact, but you will be on opposite direction and some car can hit you.
It is used on some stretches of I/48 from Olomouc towars Poland.

@vlker: that stretch of the D8 is the stretch that the pics were from
Those 'egg-cutters' seem to be safer, but motorists will really be like eggs when they hit such a rope barrier.

Radi hates concrete, he only likes clean black asphalt with thick markings. I don't mind concrete as well. X236K is completely right IMO

He seemed surprised by using concrete... I think concrete is quite common... it's a good choice for a road of that importance.

AFAIK most Czech motorways are concrete. Am I right?

More or less yes, but many of them are not of the best quality though...

Correct. It's a clever solution, the traffic densities are becoming terribly high. The only shame about new CZ highways is that only few of them is planned as 2x3 lanes.

Yes... D1 is a good example to show how a concrete road should not look like. Hope it'll be repaved!

Aren't these metal buckles(like on D2 near SK) enough?

The only solution for D1 is:

1) build R35
2) CLOSE
3) dig it all out
4) extend to 2x3 and repave
