Thanks for the tour, it looks good.

St. hranice means border if i'm correct, i haven't seen this that way in western Czechia. I have never visited eastern Czechia.
I've seen "statni hranice" for the first time too... at least, I've never noticed this before. Normally, the nearest important city is shown, - e.g. Wien in South Moravia.

5.3 l/100km = 46.7 mpg

The lane markings are only temporary or have already got wiped out after winter?

This motorway is actually in Silesia what is Eastern part of Czech republic. Eastern Czechia is completely different region.

That is how automotive fuel efficiency is measured and advertised in much of the World outside of the USA. Instead of using archaic units to show how far you go (in miles) on a certain amount of fuel (per US gallon), it is how much fuel is consumed (in liters) to go a certain fixed distance (100 km).

The conversion formula is:

l/100km = 100/(0.42368*MPG)

Thus, 5.3 l/100km = about 44.5 MPG (USA)

Wiped out, I've also noticed on both directions.

Though, in a lot countries, the actual distance you can drive with one liter is usually showed, like 1:15 (1 liter to 15 kilometers).

Maybe they used ALDI-markings, or they placed them in rain, that can be destructive for road markings. But it's extremely fast, because the drawing lines (the thin dotted ones) are still visible.

I've heard some time before that painting these lines directly after new asphalt was applied, is only temporary and it shoud be recured after some time

Maybe there's still not the last layer of asphalt. One section of Slovak R3 was opened before completition without the last asphalt layer and with temporary painted lines and after few weeks of winter the lines are almost invisible:

I don't think so. Even if it were like you've said, this road would be full of small bumps (at least in Poland it is so when there are no all asphalt layers)

Maybe, but what sense has painting temporary lines on finished road?

The pavement is final, highway is complete and the lines were painted just before it was opened in December. Last november was quite wet and snowy, so I think you're right.

No, paintigs are only temporary, cause new asphalt produce some chemical substancies which can disrupt final marking. Without this procedure producer of final paintings can´t guarantee durability. So, some delay seems to be necessary.

^ We don't have that, and I've only seen it once in my life, I think it was in Italy, but I'm not sure.
