Widening of Jižní spojka near Hostivař was finally put into operation, improving the so called "tobogan" section with two narrow lanes and 60 km/h limit. Video:

Today opened 1,2 km long easbound section (new eastbound carriageway) on "Jizni Spojka", part of the southern part inner city ring. This section enlarges and adds hard shoulder to the current road and prepares for intersection with the eastern part of the inner city ring in the future. Further works on the westbound carriageway are expected.

Dang I just missed that

Though now I have some historical footage. Those curves were really a pain in the ass.

I wonder, is it similar to hungarian "zs", if it is near the french "j"?

Yeah I was doing a little over the limit. After reading the Dutch government got only 50 fines to be collected from offenses by Dutch drivers in foreign countries, most of them from Austria, I don't worry too much The 50 km/h section is absolutely ridiculous, it should've been 80 at least.

To all who wonder about the pronounciation of "ř".

wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%98

Pronounciation example. Word "Řeka" which means "River" in czech.

Yep, I believe that foreign plates are discarded anyway (if not by the system itself, then by the clerks). 50kph limit = noise control. Cheaper than noise barriers.

D3 Tábor

Only a short section near Tábor is currently in operations as D3. The bypass of Tábor itself is not even of motorway classification, but it does have 2x2 lanes. The D3 is in good condition, except for the Tábor bypass, which has severe track formation.

The upgrade of Tábor bypass section to motorway standards is actually progressing. Only some last administrative procedures need to be done. It is coordinated with the new section south of Tábor. At the end of 2012 all sections on D3 will hopefully be in good shape

As for further construction (Prague - Mezno and Veselí - Č.Budejovice - Austria) only god knows when those work will commence...

I got done once in Czech years ago, on the old road from Prague to Chemnitz. I was supposed to do 90, did about 140. Fine: 15 euros on the spot. I laughed all the way into Germany until I had to drive through that horrible shithole Chemnitz.

Great pictures Chris!

On Saturday we passed D2 and a part of D1 from Brno to Vyškov during the night, pity I couldn't take any photos.

R6 Cheb - Karlovy Vary

This set documents the R6 eastbound from the German border at Pomezí (near Cheb) to Karlovy Vary. Nearly the entire route is of expressway standard, though not all sections actually have this status. They are currently working on the final sections near Sokolov, it looked almost finished, just some bridge works and paving here and there.

Chris, has that route tolls, or is it free?
Also, can you please explain me the color code of Czech roads (green/blue/etc)?
Thanks, and sorry if it was already explained.

Nearly all R/D roads are toll roads, a vignette is required. A 10-day vignette costs € 10. Some short sections near cities are toll-free, which is indicated by this sign.

Green signs are for motorways and expressways. It's somewhat confusing because expressways have the exact same road number shields as national roads, they don't use a prefix in CZ.
