In Poland stretches of motorways around big cities will be free to relive local roads inside those cities. Is situation the same in Czechia?
D1 is planned to be sticker-free from Exit 354 Rudná to Exit 365 Vrbice for the mentioned reason. It's the same near Brno and on Prague Ring Roads. However, bypasses of Olomouc and Plzeň are subject to fee...

Even older, take a look at this chart.
- red - under construction
- light green - opened to traffic
- green - operational

Praha - Brno part are the numbers 002 to 019 above ...

And just to mention, a widening is being prepared but it would not be realized before 2015 (only stretches near Brno are expected to begin in 2011).

But the Road and Motorway Directorate plans a substantial renewal of pavement there, at least... I hope this would help a bit as well. Nowadays, new information systems are being installed, there are 28 matrix traffic signs informing about current status on motorway and until the end of 2009 there should exist a system of dynamic traffic flow adjusting signs near Prague and Brno (like on german A9 entering München area, if you know it).

Thanks, mapman:cz

So the first section was opened to traffic in 1971. I hope that it has been repaved in the time being, is that so?

It's an interesting of displaying the developement of a motorway, by the way

Yes the 1971 section is already widened to 3+3 as you can see from the chart But some section are still paved with its original concrete surface, that's why it's so famous for it's "quality".

BTW Anything wrong with those charts? I've "invented" them

What's 3+3? 2x3 more likely.

\/ OK, I've mistaken it for 3x3, which is wrong indeed.

2x3 - 2 jezdnie, kazda 3 pasy ruchu

3+3 - 3 pasy ruchu po lewej + 3 pasy ruchu po prawej ))

In CZ we rather use the second type I've seen the first type so many times on polish forum, so I totally get why you got misunderstood at the first sight ))

You won't believe it, but here on SSC - Infrastruktura drogowa subforum It's not so hard for native czech or slovak speaker to learn some typical words and phrases, while reading that forum so frequently as I did some time ago

Oh, and to answer the speed limits question:

So from Vrbice to the border you will need sticker? It is just few km.
I mean when road is finished.

It's only a proposal, but I think yes, you'll need a sticker from border to Vrbice. But again, there has to be some place near border where you can buy it

R35 Visualisation

On ceskedalnice.cz we just have released a brand new aerial visualisation of R35 that represents a new motorway-like connection between Bohemia and Moravia. The video shows parts of its cca 72 km long stretch from Vysoke Myto, along Svitavy to Mohelnice (between Hradec Kralove and Olomouc).

Click here to watch it online! Duration: 12:25 min.

I hope it is only proposal.
For polish cities like Jastrzebie (where I'm from), Wodzislaw or even Zory and Rybnik, Ostrava is going to be the closest big city (well, kind of). I predict big traffic. Nearest Ikea for example is in Ostrava, there is good nightlife, it might be also alternative airport for Katowice (for people from towns mentioned above) etc. More people might also in future work across the border. If motorway is tolled people will try to avoid it which will pack local roads with traffic.
I think EU i funding this road exactly to help bridge regions from both side of the border. Polish part gets funding from "unity fund" if I'm not wrong.

That's standard in Czech Republic and I think in many other countries as well.

It's safer anyway. But I believe that on the tunnels on the A10 near Amsterdam and the A4 near Schiphol the speed limit is just 100 km/h.

I believe 100 km/h speed limit is standard for tunnels in EU, except in cities. 80 km/h is usually a speed limit in 1 tube motorway tunnels.

Czech speed limits in tunnels are unnecessarily strict.

Even short tunnels with emergency lanes like Valik (380 m) on D5 have max 80 km/h:




These limits are heavily enforced as each highway tunnel in Czech republic has ANPR cameras to measure the average speed of passing vehicles.

Imho speed limits in tunnels wo emergency lanes could easily be 90-100 kph w/o compromizing safety too much (and 110 kph in tunnels w emergency lanes, if restricted at all).

Yes, 80 km/h in a 2×2 motorway tunnel with shoulders can safely become 100 km/h.
