The intergovermental agreement puts it to 2012. I would say that they could be finished on the czech side certainly sooner... already next year. They will already maybe put the first layer of CB in few km around Bohumin since the finisher is there. The only problem here are the money and new savy policy of the new ministry... (so called we will starve them to lower prices), otherwise it could have been already opened.
The polish side looks too rather prepared however, there is currently no constructor and the site is in stuck for some time (a half year maybe??).
Therefore also there are no complaints from PL side. They have troubles with constructor, CZ side with money... so both are happy with delayed date.
D1 is built by: Sdružení (Group of firms) D47092/2007^^ The last section of D1 Bohumín - CZ/PL border (Věřňovice/Gorzycki) will be completed by the end of 2011 and is built by Skanska (well I´m not pretty sure about that but it´s definitely not built by Alpine Bau)
If there is such a provision (about which I'm not sure), it should be in EU Regulation 562 of 2006. Here are the links to the law in English, Polish, and Czech, respectively. To get it in any other official EU language simply change the two-letter code just before "DF" at the end.If you found some specific EU provisions making it obligatory and mandatory to implement( in accordance with the Schengen Treaty ) in each member state this specific roadsign, I would be very obliged for your short info.

Are Ceske Dalnice encountering the same problems with this company ? Can we be sure that finally in March 2012 we can use this section ?
I guess we are a rich country .Why are there massive noise screens along pastures?
Same with motorways... Are our noise regulations too strict? Maybe necessary, but not realistic. I know the noise level ought to be 48 dB or less, which is really low. Even at a street with more than 1.000 vehicles per day you exceed 48 dB. My apartment has 83 dB because of the adjacent railway...Basically you can't see a damn thing from the window of the train on already completed parts if you're anywhere near the inhabited areas.
Is that on both sides of the railroad? Otherwise you would have to divide the length of the barriers by 2 to get a good comparison.stretch ID: stretch length / length of sound barriers
Czech Republic Minister of Transport banned from driving
Vít Bárta, the Minister of Transport for the Czech Republic, has been banned from driving. Bárta has been banned for six months after being caught driving with a fake licence plate.
The minister was driving with a sticker with his registration number written on it glued to the hood of his car. He was caught in July, while driving his Maserati home from his own wedding. He claimed to have lost the original licence plate while driving along a dirt road. It has been reported that Bárta does not plan to appeal the ban.
As well as his six-month driving ban, Bárta has also been fined 5,000 koruna. The charges were announced by Karel Hanzelka, a spokesman for the Transport Ministry.
Bárta spoke to reporters about his ban. He joked around saying that he wouldn't really miss his licence and that his "wife will drive him around". He also said that he accepted his punishment.
