more to come soon, I have to do some exams first :)
Everything depends on money so we will see... :)
Expressway between Žilina and Ostrava is definitly needed. There is already heavy traffic, mainly freight, and after Kia factory in Žilina and Hyundai in Nošovice will be built, then it will even increased.

Now something more current in the west of the country:
The following 23,4km long part of D8 motorway [Prague - Ústí nad Labem - CZ/D border - (Dresden)] from the city of Ústí nad Labem to Czech/German border (Km 69,3 – 92,7) will be opened this year in December. German A17 from CZ/D border via Pirna to Dresden will be opened at the same time.

Sorry Verso, I've somehow missed point of your post. Would you write it "in words of one syllabe" I could grasp it? :)
Usually? I don't know, where? IMO expressways are marked as thin motorways usually. True is that there are only little differences between Motorway and Expressway.
I must admit you are right. That's problem of the map (or creator of the map), it doesn't offer exact information to its users. But what is important for us here in Czechia is we know that these expressways exist, they are marked on our maps and we can drive our cars on them :D
According to and 2007-2009 (section from Bohumín to CZ/PL border). See this
Ano, poslední 3,5km dálnice D5. A bude tam vůbec první tunel na dálnici u nás (dlouhý plných 350 m :) )
tady je foto ze září

...a ze dne otevřených dveří tento víkend

Bohužel mám teď málo času na updaty, docela bych uvítal kdyby se tu objevil někdo od nás a trochu s tím pohnul. Já sem budu chodit jak budu moct, ale už to bude z mé strany asi chudší. Naštěstí tohle fórum žije a to hlavně díky Slovensku a Bratislavě :)

I don't know but I'll try to find something about it.
^for sure, something like that. I was quite surprised when I saw it because I didn't have "ahnung" they are building something like that there. It's probably only this short section as a necessary part of Chomutov bypass.
This December new 42kms of D11 Motorway [(Prague-Hradec Králové-(Wroclaw)] is going to be opened. Photos taken this October.

^ yes, To Hradec. It will temporarily ends about 4km before Hradec Králové due to few ecologist fellowships bought land where it should go through.
