Intergovernmental agreement signed: R52 to connect southern Moravia with Austria

On Friday, 23 January 2009 in Vienna, the Austrian federal government and the government of the Czech Republic signed an agreement on connecting Austria's A5 motorway and the Czech Republic's R52 high-speed road. According to the document, the Czech and Austrian motorway networks will meet within the cadastral districts of the towns of Mikulov and Drasenhofen. The document was signed by the Czech ambassador to Austria, Jan Koukal, and by Rudolf Lennkh of the Austrian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The motorway network has doubled in size since 1989

A huge amount of transport infrastructure construction in the Czech Republic has been completed, and at least as much lies ahead. Since 1989, the motorway and high-speed-road network has increased from 544 kilometres to the current 1,056. The construction activity has recorded the greatest dynamism over the last two years, when 136 kilometres of motorways and high-speed roads were put into operation.

New information boards on the D1 motorway

A total of 28 information boards are now in everyday use on the D1.

By the end of year there will already be 28 information boards on the D1

The Road and Motorway Directorate has started installing further variable information boards on our most busy D1 motorway. By the end of year there will be 22 new boards, thus the total of 28 boards will mean outstanding coverage, which will increase the supply of information for drivers where they need it most.

We are opening a contemporary traffic information centre

On Thursday, September 11, 2008, the Road and Motorway Directorate put the National Traffic Information and Control Centre in Ostrava into official operation. In the presence of a number of important guests, the operation of the new contemporary workplace with advanced technology for the collection, processing, sharing, publishing and distribution of traffic information and data from the whole road network of the CR was ceremonially started.

This year the Czech Republic will have more than 200 kilometres of motorway and high-speed road sections under construction

The Road and Motorway Directorate now already has a record number of kilometres of roads of motorway-type under construction. To be exact, as of August 2008 160 kilometres of motorways and high-speed roads are under construction.

We have started a special internet portal for drivers on the situation on the roads

The Road and Motorway Directorate has started a unique centralized web system that provides information on the traffic situation on the roads. An internet portal was opened for the public, where it is possible to follow the available information on the current traffic situation. Thus Czech drivers are now able to easily find out what the conditions on the roads where they are planning their journeys are like. The information is available at

Czech Republic obtains CZK 6 billion from EU subsidies for 13 projects of new roads

Thanks to the Operating Programme Transport, the burden on the Czech state budget - and thus on the taxpayers' wallets - in relation to the construction of new domestic highways and roads will be lower. A great benefit for the transportation construction, the funds from the European Union are as high as 85% of the total amount for the construction. The total amount will be up to CZK 66 billion until 2013.

Czech Republic Will Have 1,000 Kilometres of Motorways and High speed roads

This week will mark a major “road-related” event for the entire Czech Republic. The Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic will open the 1,000th kilometre of Czech motorways.

Winter Maintenance 2007/2008

Some 4,500 people are ready to maintain more than 53,000 kilometres of roads in the Czech Republic in winter. They include 500 employees of the Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic who maintain 715 kilometres of motorways and certain speedways, while the other roads are taken care of, in keeping with the maintenance plans, by the relevant road maintenance organisations in the individual regions, and/or subcontracted outsourced suppliers.

An overview of continuous reconstructions on motorways, speedways and first-class roads

Till the end of the year 200, The Road and Motorway Directorate CR plans to reconstruct tens of sectors of motorways, speedways and first-class roads in the total cost of 3,5 milliard CZK. Thanks to this, the drivers would find some complications with traffic in this autumn time, however we hope that this activity will be understood on behalf of a better condition of the road surface.

Safely through a tunnel

Considering the new highway tunnels, an information leaflet was developed, informing the drivers about the safety devices in the tunnels, traffic signs in the tunnels and the general rules of driving through tunnels.

A study: opening of the D5 motorway literally saved the traffic in Plzeň

The motorway by-pass of Plzeň, of which the last sector was opened in October 2006, has brought to the town of Plzeň a relief to freight and passenger traffic by tens of percent. The motorway has taken away the load and on the same time it absorbed all of the additional traffic from the past years. We can see the evidence for this in the study of “Správa veřejného statku města Plzně” (Administration of public estates of the town of Plzeň)

The costs of the solution of the noise burden will reach a couple of tens of billions CZK

Czech Republic is the state with the strictest rules in the field of the anti-noise protection around the traffic communications. According to the law, the owner of the communication is responsible for everything. The Road and Motorway Directorate assumes that the costs of the solution of the noise burden around the main roads and highways will be in the digits of tens of billions CZK.

From 1990 have the duration of ride on the main lines in the Czech Republic shorten for two hours, in 2010 this is going to be even over three hours

High dynamics of construction of traffic infrastructure, quicker and better quality wagon lines and the increase of speed limits out of the municipality in 1997 - these are the main reasons for the quicker road traffic in the Czech Republic. Whereas in 1990 the driver managed the way from Prague to Ostrava for 3 hours and 43 minutes, after seventeen years later, actually this year, the driver manages the same distance for 2 hours and 51 minutes. The driver gains an also important time saving on other routes, such as from Prague to German borders or Hradec Králové.
