The R48 Rychaltice - Frydek-Místek construction.

credit Martin z Ostravy ceske dalnice gallery


What I dont get completely is why this road is proposed to be marked only as I/48 (although with 130 km/s speed limit) if the big change in the categorization of czech highways and motorways will come to pass in future years.

Let's just hope that the whole proposal will be yet reconsidered and adjusted. It would be shame to not mark this road as a motorway if expressways category is abolished.

The city ring tunnel in Brno will open to traffic on 31 august. Two tubes of 1250 meters will connect the two nothern parts of the city ring and also the R43.

Very nice pictures of the construction of Trója bridge in Prague. The bridge construction is part of the bigger project of the northern part of Prague's inner city ring.

you might find this interesting: http://www.mestsky-okruh-brno.cz/useky-vmo-brno

Those east and south east sections should be the next on the agenda, but the dates are blurry. The project of the Brno station and of the east part of the city ring in Brno are interconected and causing complicated planning.

What is this P0? Will R1 be numbered as PO ( Pražský okruh)?

The map is just thrown into discussion by the people in the gov. However, the R1 will have to be renamed if it is to be classified as a motorway.

There are proposal to give it the number 0, but it has some opponents, who don't like the idea of a zero as a road number.
I think that even the number one used today is troublesome.
Other logical proposal is number 99.
I would also propose number 100, which used to be a II. class road in Prague, but it is not in the numbering scheme of major roads 1-99. Still better than PO.

D0 would do the job for me. There's already an R0 around Brussels and M0 around Budapest, so there's a precedence.

As it refers to Brno ring, isn't the part "Zabrovesky" most important for the time being? When the now being built tunnel is completed, that will be a single carriegaway with pedestrian crossings between two stretches of dual carriegaway, which is highly undesirable.

Yes, after finishing Dobrovského tunnels it will be the next part of city ring being upgraded. It should start next year. It´s a narrow valley near river and there were 3 alternatives for upgrade:

1. move the river - cheapest,but not possible to o through ecologists,

2. make a bridge over tram track (so it would be 2 levels - first level tram track, second level motorway)

3. dig tunnel for tram and make a motorway on place of tram track.

Third option was chosen and here is visualisation of future structure: http://www.mestsky-okruh-brno.cz/zab...ova-vizalizace

The works on first class road I/11, that will shorten the connection between Ostrava and Opava at the north east of the Czech republic, are resumed.


The road features 10 km of 2x2 replacing the current I/11. The construction should be finished in 2015.

There is a new gallery at www.ceskedalnice.cz covering this construction. Courtesy Vladimír Carbol.

The construction started in January 2009 and was stopped due to the financial reaasons in August 2010. The project costs are at 3,6 Bln CZK without VAT, that is around 140 mil EUR.

Just read the opening of the (completed) border part of D1 has been postponed one more year due to the delay on the polish side. It appears Poles will have to demolish the cursed Mszana bridge altogether and to build it afresh.

Not true at all .. but some serious changes in the project are to be done. This shows once again how precise journalists are And try to explain it then to your friends, why are there such idiots ...

The Brno city ring Dobrovského tunnel opened today for traffic together with other parts of the I/42 Brno north city ring site RSD report. The RSD sets the price tag at 8.4 Bln CZK, that is around 340 Mln Euro for altoghether 6.2 km (where the two 1.2 long tunnel tubes are counted twice I guess). The construction took 6 years since the works started.
