I have a few questions, because i haven't been to the Czech Republic for a few years.

Is the section Usti - Lovosice now the only missing link in the D8?

What is exactly the difference between a Dalnice (D) and an Expressway (R)? i didn't saw much difference between them. Is it only toll?

Will there be a motorway from Brno via Ostrava or so to Northern Slovakia?

Is the D5 now connected with the German A93 motorway near Pfreimd?

D8 => yes there are only 16km gap, I advice you to follow signs for Prague, gap is filled with quite nice road along the Labe valley

D5 => completly done from Prague to german A93

Now we have highway from Brno to Lipnik, in future (2013) wil be completed way to slovakia.

Both are tolled, they have same speed limit (130km/h). Only difference is that R-class roads are little bit narrower (D = 26,5m - R = 22,5-26,5m). But that is also relative for example Prague baypass have 3lines in each direction so it is better than most west european highways and it is still marked as R - expressway.

Kapsch collects Kc810,000 in toll on 1st day, expects Kc10m today

Prague- Hauliers paid Kc810,000 for the use of Czech motorways and primary roads during the first 24 hours of operation of the electronic toll system which however was a national holiday, Kapsch TrafficCom board member Erwin Toplak told a press conference today.

Today, almost Kc7m was collected in toll before 2:00 p.m., and the estimate for the whole day approaches Kc10m. The efficiency of the system is 99.25 percent.

As of today, 72,000 on-board units have been distributed to hauliers, while the Transport Ministry forecast the total number at 80,000 units. Toplak said the figure would be exceeded very soon and the ministry would have to order more units from Kapsch.

The distribution of on-board units was without any problems in some parts of the country, but accompanied by difficulties in other localities today.

Lorries and buses weighing 12 tonnes and more have to pay toll on 970 kilometres of Czech motorways and primary roads from January 1. The system was built by Austrian company Kapsch.

Toplak said today that the construction of the system in the first stage cost some Kc2.5bn. The entire order in both stages including services and VAT is worth Kc22bn.

I think R (expressways) are allowed to be a bit steeper and have lesser radius of corners than D (motorways). And traffic lanes are a bit narrower IMO.
