D1 is an relatively old motorway. The D8 is a good example of how a concrete road should look like

Map of planned Frydek-Mistek bypass (by www.rsd.cz). They say construction may start next autumn... I doubt!

I should have known, I've crossed the Polish-Czech border near that road, and I've driven on it for a very short time.

As to the markings - is Cesky Tesin's bypass already R or not?

No, it is not and will never be. "R" is terminated just before the city.

Working on D1 is quite clear:
In 2012 - 2016 there will be widening of D1 to 2x3 between Kývalka and Holubice (bypass of Brno) including rebuilding of crossing with D2 and R52. There is a situation of rebulding http://www.ceskedalnice.cz/prilohy/D1_D2_R52_plan.pdf

Widening of the rest of highway (Mirošovice - Kývalka) is in pilot project phase. My friend from Valbek (highway projection company) told me, that they are working on some studies about widening of D1. But it will probably be under construction after completing R35. So maybe 2016 and later.

It would be good to extend R56 to D1 in Ostrava, it would give nice bypass to this city

Actually there is such a project like this, and some stretches are u/c. But it will not be an ordinary expressway, but urban expressway.

There are some pdf from highway directoriate.
http://www.rsd.cz/catalog/Stavime-pr...a-mistecka.pdf

The feeder to D1 from this stretch is in construction and will be soon opened, and after these project there will be full 2x2 urban expressway from R56 to D1

Word "dálnice" celebrates 70 years of existence

Today, the czech expression for motorway - "dálnice" - celebrates 70 years since it first officialy appeared.

On 15th November 1938 director of Velitelství výstavby dálkových silnic (Command for construction of long-distance roads) send a letter to Ministry of National Defence with a proposal of setting up a new word for these long-distance roads called Autobahn in Germany. Author of this expression is Karel Chmel, employee of the Command.

The word "dálnice" is said to be an abbreviation from the expression "dálková silnice", which means "long-distance road" in English or "Fern-Strasse" in German. It represents a road which is supposed to enable fast long-distance road connections, to connect various regions of country by a comfort road.

Despite of that fact and the fact that the construction of motorways in Czechoslovakia begun really in 1938, our first section of modern motorway was opened to traffic in 1971, 4 years after 1967, when the constuction of motorways in Czechoslovakia was offiacialy restored.

So cheers to dálnice! 70 years!

My two cents on the literral meaning of the word dálnice: imho the most fitting translation into english is farway.
