D8

I drove to Dresden to see "Die Gläserne Manufaktur" and took some pictures of the D8 as that was the first time I used the new stretch connecting Czech and Germany.

Part I, old stretch of D8 and I/8, R63

Nice pics! Too bad that they don't sign Dresden on the old part of the D8. How are they actually doing with the part that is U/C now? Still scheduled to be finished in 2011?

To be honest this is the first time I noticed this in Czech... and if you didn't tell me, I wouldn't notice at all..

Regarding capital letters and mixed-case letters ... from wikipedia ...

Quote:

Ascenders, together with descenders, increase the recognizability of words. For this reason, British road signs no longer use all capital letters.[1]

Studies made at the start of the construction of the British motorway network concluded that mixed-case letters were much easier to read than "all-caps" and a special font was designed for motorway signs, these then became universal across the UK. See Road signs in the United Kingdom.

Nice pictures.

Will the D1 just end in Kroměříž? It would make sense to extend it to Považská Bystrica in Slovakia via Zlín.

That was the original plan (during the federation times), but now it is rerouted via Přerov to Ostrava and Polish border (the original D47). R49 is heading towards Slovakia instead.

God only knows

D3 Tabor - Veseli probably 2011, complete section Tabor - Budejovice - Austria maybe 2015, stretch Praha - Tabor around 2020 - its a big environmental issue..

R52 also envi-issue - might be finished in 2015 if it goes well.

What's the status on R35? Seems quite important to have a second artery through the Czech republic...
