After years of waiting, the city of Brno finally witnessed the opening of transport projects on the I/42 highway, which are of key importance for drivers. The three projects are part of the Great City Ring Road (“VMO”) project. The completion was also postponed due to a six-year dispute with environmental and civic associations over completion of the Dobrovského Tunnel.
The recently realigned I/37 near the town of Trhová Kamenice, which the RMD is commissioning today, will replace a complicated and overloaded route. The existing bridge was not wide enough to allow safe two-way traffic for all types of vehicles. The newly realigned road resolves this issue.
