I wouldn't do that. Because, Republika Czeska can mean anywhere at any border crossing, if you want to sign so far per se, i think they should sign a city that is actually on maps, like Ostrava or Katowice.

nice. now i remember that we have few blue cat lights. actually, not cat lights, but LED in tunnels - they sign how large the distance should be kept.

i have one more question - this plant - is it nuke or thermo?

Cesky Tesin, with Poland on the horizon:


Why does the exressway end right before border, if there is a expressway continuation of this road in Poland? It does not come up to standards?

Expressway = 130 kmph limit. Other roads only 90 kmph. This might be the reason.

Well, there are many "reasons".

First, when Tesin bypass was built, there were permanent convoys of trucks, so 130 kph wouldn't be safe. And it was also a very short stretch to sign as expressway. So it was opened as a dual carriageway with 90 kph limit. Then, it is a bypass, so it's good to have it free for cars.

But all of these are only bad excuses, because it should be expressway, it was built in propriate parameters, truck convoys waiting at the border disappeared... The main reason, I think, is that it is an additional and "unnecessary" work for someone. A lot of administrative paperwork is behind it and signs must be replaced as well which is a matter of finding some money in budget...

So it is this way

Still for me a bigger problem is the part of this road between Polish and Czech former border check points, which is now 1x3. Are there any plans connected with building second viaduct there?

My previous car. As if no one drives it. But it has surprisingly few buttons, mine had a lot more iirc; I didn't know there were such differences. Good road! Frýdek-Místek sounds funny.

No idea, I usually drive, so I never really use them. Too bad we had crappy Eastern European cars when I was a kid.

Well, as far as I know, czech Road and Motorway Directorate doesn't have such plans. IMHO its much more complicated than anyother construction because the bridge lies both in Poland and Czechia...
