R35 + I/37 + interchange

Ok, time to get serious again. Bits of R35 (~3kms) and I/37 (~4kms) + an interchange are going to be opened in a few weeks. Cost for the stretch is CZK 1.4bn (~55.5mil €); 2005 AADT for I/37: ~20.000. See the full gallery here.

R35:


I/37, R35 bridge in the background:


interchange; the top level (carrying the R35) will be built between these ramps and over the roundabout in second phase:


WTF? Probably the crashbarrier parts weren't shiny enough.

If there were any bumps or holes I'm sure I felt them, but there were no signifigant stretches that were so bad that it would have left me with a bad impression.

Actually it's not that bad from km 0 to 203. The worst part is 203 - 230. This requires repaving first.

And they could directly continue with repaving of the whole D2 and ca first 20 kms of D11 near Prague (in conclusion the oldest sections..) But when I use the left line, it´s quite okay.

That sounds good, cause I want to go back a few times in the next decade (for hrad-seeing), but I dont want to drive on that section in this condition again...

Simple solution: use other roads and visit other parts of our country as well...

OK, some more news. Another enormous stretch (2,5km long bypass of Sulec) of R7 expressway is opening today.
Price: CZK 550mil (~21.5mil €); 2005 AADT: 16.000. You can see the whole stretch on this photo:


Yes, we are probably world's champions in building the shortest motorway and expressway stretches.

yeah, I have to choose destinations which can be accessed without D1...

this spring I visited northern part of your country, so I had to go on the D1... (its condition was a bad surprise for me...)

the western part can be accessed only by D1 too, so it have to be postponed...

but the southern and eastern part can be accessed without D1...

I think the next destination will be the Ceske Budejovice region, which can be accessed via austria quite well...

It's about halfway from Praha to Chomutov. Can we see a progress on the rest of the route too?

It surely is a small village, but it was one of the last two missing bypasses on I/7 between Prague and Chomutov.

The situation is a bit difficult, as is usual with our infrastructure projects.
Currently the road is missing only one bypass. Some stretches are already built as one carriageway of a future expressway, however as the standards have changed over time, many of them would require upgrades and/or relocations as well.
Preparations of the stretches between Postoloprty and Chomutov are the most advanced. Bitozeves-Vysočany stretch was opened this year. The contractors are already known for the part towards Chomutov, but it's unsure whether the project will get approval for the EU funding. And I have my doubts, since the old road is seeing some resurfacing works... We'll just have to wait and see.

And I'd say that it's a good choice - the southern Bohemia and the neighbouring part of Vysočina are my favourite parts of the country. I like the landscape dotted with ponds and villages; the towns are interesting as well - Slavonice, Telč, Jindřichův Hradec, Třeboň, Tábor, České Budějovice, Český Krumlov, Písek, Prachatice... Unesco heritage sites included And then there are Šumava mountains to the west... But I guess I'm starting to sound like a tourist handbook now.

Actually all the stretches. Except the mentioned Lotouš bypass and the stretch between exit 66 (I/27) and Chomutov.

As for standards changes and consequent upgrades/relocations of the existing carriageway: this wasteful approach really makes me sick. I think situations like this are the very reason why construction laws allow exemptions from standards. To relocate a road just to gain 0,5% gradient less is pure wasting, nothing else.

But R7 is not that bad as these relocations/upgrades only concern one or two places. Much worse example of this wasteful aproach is D3 between Vodňany and Budějovice, where dozens of 15-25 years old bridges are intended to be torn down just to get 11,5m wide carriageway now required for motorways (width able to carry 2+2 lanes in emerg config/one carriageway closed for repairs) instead of formerly allowed 10.75m.

All that in situation when the much more heavyly laden stretches next to big cities were build according to the very same or even older standards and, perhaps except D1, there's no planned upgrade in sight.

The discussed R7 is an especially striking exaple as its stretches next to Prague often have narrow/short entry/exit/emergency lanes or even miss them at all, making for one of the most dangerous and run down sections of road infrastructure in Czech republic.
