When is the next section of the D1 (north of this one) due to open?

These two last section, 12 + 8 km (besides the Polish border section D1 - A1 which is due to be opened next spring) are not going to be so quickly finished, certainly not before 2015/6. Here are some pdfs from RSD.

Rikovice Prerov

Prerov Lipnik

The first section Rikovice - Prerov could be (rahter optimistic) under construction in next summer. The second one Prerov - Lipnik (current D1) then perhaps year later. The construction times are around 2-3 years. The only pressure on the construction are problems with congested Prerov and need of bypass there. The budgets are however very tight and give little space for these projects I would assume.

It's correct the other way around. There are already some building permits issued for the section Prerov - Lipnik, construction might begin next year (if money is allocated for this section). The second section, Rikovice - Prerov, has some problematic issues and won't be started sooner than 2014. According to the Ministry of Transport, the completion of D1 motorway is expected in 2017.

A section of R6 also appeared to have been opened Sunday near Sokolov.

Yep, section Sokolov - Tisová (http://www.mapy.cz/s/11SL) has been put into operation in full profile (5,4 km). Neighbouring section to the east has been opened to traffic in both directions, so far only eastbound direction was opened (since spring). Here is a picture made in winter (showing bridge over Ohře valley, constructed in 1980's and now widened to accomodate 4 lanes) and a video of it made in april:

Yes, the section Nove Sedlo - Sokolov was opened in half profile, both directions. It should be full profile next spring. Following section Sokolov - Tisová became full profile.

One can now drive without leaving R6 from Karlovy Vary to Cheb, only in the section Nove Sedlo - Sokolov in half profile.

Hope now I got it allright

MUK (interchange) Rybnicky on the Prague inner ring map (Městský okruh) under construction.

Video (credits to: kasme) in the eastbound direction


The whole intersection will look like this.


There is the current southern part of the City ring going from east to west (Jizni spojka) being enlarged, the lanes in the north direction will serve future eastern part of the Prague's city ring (now only in preparation, I see the construction of the eastern part being started and completed in 10 years horizon). Site dedicated to Prague´s main roads is being built on this adress http://mestskyokruh.info/. So far only the eastern part of the City ring is covered.

The visualisation of the eastern part of the City ring can be found here. Nice video presentation (only in the czech language) then here.

Some other renders from the eastern part plans of the Prague's inner city ring.

Hi. Right thread

About the R46 thing, Policie repeatedly released statements about the bad shape of this road, esp. guardrails, and demanded safety measures. So an audit has been carried out, that has proved that the guardrails are not safe enough for 130 km/h speed. Some junctions don't have appropriate merging lanes and the surface has got bad anti-skid characteristics. And to sum it up, the construction speed of R46 is max. 100 km/h. All that lead officials to impose the speed limit.

The main reason is high percentage of accidents. Also, an accident in february caused death of 6 ppl when one car "jumped" over middle crashbarriers and smashed into another car.


The road surface is of low quality on several places and the road design is not up to the now a days standards for a motorway anyway. There were also some noise issues in the city of Prostejov.

Lowering speed limits is very popular among local politicians to reduce highway noise. However it's purely symbolic for those politicians to pretend they're doing something about it. Lowering the speed limit from 120 to 100 reduces the noise level by less than 1 dB, provided the average speed actually drops by 20 km/h (which is highly unlikely).

It depends on the respective place and speed. In Prague on the north south axis (magistrala) speed limit was reduced from 80 to 50 km/h and the noise level dropped by more than 5 dB. But at higher speeds you don't get such positive values, it just doesn't work. Prostejov IMHO needs a better noise barrier (higher and bent) and then it will be sufficient enough.

That's because speed limits lower than 80 km/h affects truck traffic, which is dominant with noise emissions.

Thanks for the information. Firstly limit was only in Prostejov. So today I can expect a lot of black VW Passat´s on R46 once more thx.

Not the case of this particular road, as trucks aren't allowed there.
