The final decission that European Commission will not pay out 11 Mld CZK (around 450 Mln Euro) on some Czech infastructure projects that were already started in past years (since 2007).

The system works normally like this. Finances are assigned, but project is financed from own sources, during the completition the funding comes from EU as well as screening.

However, in this case screening proved severe problems with tenders, either in the sence of formal problems in the projects, or in the sence of suspicion of their purpose, or possible unjustified enrichment during the projects when price had rissen without just reasoning and clear tendering.

The main bulk 8 Mld CZK was meant for D8 motorway. These fundings have to be now paid fully from national sources. Reasoning is that the national authorities did not considered a variant of this motorway section to the current project that goes through the protected nature area of České středohoří. I think that followers of Czech motorways know already how is this project delayed and what kind of problems it has due to the enviromental groups and juridical ingorance of czech authorities in this case.

One of the projects that also lost the funding from EU was project of railway bridge over Labe (Elbe) that could lift itself about two meters. It was around 800 Mln CZK (37 Mln EUR). The whole tender was made to suit only one contender. The bridge is finished, but even now it is not really clear if it will ever use its function.


Simply put, this decission means that in future years there will be 0,5 Bln Euro less money for future projects because the re funds of past spent money will not come. This is e.g. half the price for reconstruction of D1 from Prague to Brno, or some possible 20 km of motorways that will not be build.

When I read something like this then I am allways sorry that the EU could not also lock up these corrupt politicians and bureucrats, because they really dont care about this, since they are all long gone anyway.

Is there any plans of recontruction of D1 Section Brno-Vyskov ? (194-230km). The conrete, especially on right lane is very worn out.

I made another video, arguably the best high-speed route in the Czech Republic to drive. Nice views and nice twists in the road.

R35 from Turnov to past Liberec:

R4 Písek - Praha

I took photos of the entire R4 this summer, from Písek to Praha. This set ends at the most impressive interchange in the country, the R1/R4 interchange.

R4 is extended into the city of Prague as the Strakonicá, also known as the Chuchelská Radiála, a 2x2 city boulevard without traffic lights. It ends at the MO. Some signs are really old.

The oldest part was built in 1963.

I would correct that, the first short stretch was opened in 1953. Probably the first dual carriage road almost completely grade separated in Czechoslovakia. It was the stretch from Smíchov to Malá Chuchle.
But the oldest signs would probably from 1985 or 1988, when Jižní spojka was opened.

I'd say most plates are in terrible condition and I remember it not being so bad just a few years ago, so it's deteriorating. At this pace it'll be undrivable in a couple of years...

Last I checked start of construction of the missing section of D1 between Hulín and Lipník nad Bečvou was planned for next year. Is that still the plan, or was it delayed?

Truck tolls in the Czech Republic were increased 20% this year. Any chance of this additional revenue means more renovations of the aforementioned road sections?

Though tariffs were increased, the total real income from tolls is not significantly higher, because of differencies in numbers of trucks among tariff groups.

But as written here before, the Praha - Brno stretch will be "modernised" in next years.

OT: There's not enough money for roads in 2012 and one of the backstage reasons is that the Ministry of Transport is lead by a small coalition party which is somehow new in politics and our financial minister doesn't want them to steal big amounts of money. And because of the lack of funds, there are not any new tenders, so it works Eastern europe .... Shame we don't have any guarantee for public road financing in mid term ...

Podsumowując, ruch całkiem spory, prace skupiają się głównie na skarpach, termin niezagrożony moim zdaniem na tej części odcinka.
Jeśli kogoś interesuje co się dzieje na Czeskim odcinku, to proszę zaglądać do czeskiego wątku, bo prawdopodobnie dziś wieczorem wrzucę tam zdjęcia.

Gdy robiłem zdjęcia pracowało kilka ekip przy nasadzeniach. W sumie została wykończeniówka, na jezdniach leży już wszędzie docelowa warstwa asfaltu bądź betonu, także spokojnie można by przed zimą skończyć.
To tyle.

When will they fix D1 near Ostrava? There is a 1000-1500 m long section with 80 km/h limit and uneven surface.

Now it is not such a big problem, but with Polish section open in 2012 traffic will increase rapidly.

Say again? It's only some 5 - 6 years old with low traffic volumes. All these new motorways are great, but it appears some better quality control wouldn't hurt.

They wont fix it ever...

Now seriously. There was used wrong type of slag during the construction as the underlying layer (Slag was/is used in the region as construction material due to the proximity of the steel industry). This slag acts like a sponge and sucks water. In reaction the surface rises up creating wawes. Not bad for four years old motorway, right . I could not find any deadline for all repairs and I guess there is none. The current limitations should end on 21. 10. 2011.

It looks like this:



These problems showed up right few months after opening. Indeed replacing the surface could have not possibly hepled. Now they have Eurovia to repair it, still in the guarantee. They want to add polystyren in the underlying layer to compensate. Let me laugh here. I would guess that the only help would be complete excavation and replacement. But yeah it will never happen. My guess, in time the problem will fizzle out.


BTW great photos of D1 border section!!! Cant wait for this section to open.

The same situation is with A2 Hemus motorway in Bulgaria. In the 80th when the first kilometers of that motorway were built, slag from the neighbouring
factory Kremitovtzi was usind for the underlying layers. The result can be still seen nowadays, 25-30 years later, at the first appr. 30 km of the A2 even, after rehabilitation of the asphalt contruction some years ago.

I'm not buying that for a second.

If it is Eurovia's fault, they have to fix it.

Bohumín I/67 bypass opened today, however, I don't quite understand what actually opened.

http://www.rsd.cz/doc/Stavime-pro-va...-cast-obchvatu

Did this opening also include 2 km of D1?
