So this year and again 2008 and 2009 are the highlists of the highway construction. in 2009 impressive number of more than 100 km of new opened sections :cheers:

And, also the expressway between Zilina and Ostrava seem to be more and more realistic. On www.dialnice.info is an article,where Czech Ministry of Transport expressed the will to plan and construct expressway /Jablunkov bypass is already U/C,but I am not sure, whether it´s expressway/ :)

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.

Yes, just for the information to the others - little off topic: Pravda is now owned by British newspaper company. ;)

And I am also curious, what will be the priority besides ongoing construction, whether complete 3x3 additional one lane construction of D1 Praha-Brno, or the new construction of R35 expressway.

I cannot see any connection between new owner of Pravda and highway between Žilina and Ostrava. It is very offtopic.

I don't know if there's any value of this post :D but still... I think it's a pity to see how few 'cool' roads there are in Czech Republic if you look at many maps, especially those with a scale of let's say 1:3,000,000 (like maps of Europe), considering that especially in CZ the (at least) 4-lane expressways (rychlostní silnice) are almost as good as the motorways (dálnice), even with the same speed limit (130 km/h) and hard shoulders, if I'm right.

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

Yeah well, I just think CZ is sth special about it, b/c the speed limit is the same as on motorways, there are hard shoulders, if I'm correct, and u've got many more of them than other countries. But yeah, as I've already written in the 9th post, I don't know if this discussion has any value, so... :D

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 :)
