Opening an information centre for the R35 Motorway
The Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic is officially opening a new information centre for the R35 motorway in the centre of Pardubice on 19 February 2010. A priority component of the Czech motorway network, the project will, once completed, function as an alternative for the D1 highway when travelling from the eastern part of the country to the west. The information centre will be officially open for the general public from Monday 1 March 2010.
The R35 motorway information centre is located on the premises of the office of the government commissioner for linear infrastructure construction of the R35 motorway and the D11 highway at třída Míru 90 in Pardubice.
According to Alfred Brunclík, the CEO of RMD, the centre is intended primarily for the general public, the mayors of the adjacent communities, and other representatives of self-government. “Aside from them, we would like to invite the students of technology-oriented high schools and universities to the information centre. We believe this type of education offers great benefits. We also expect to start addressing the land owners within the R35 route in the near future, which will lead to an increase in the interest in the information about the preparation and construction of the motorway”, adds Alfred Brunclík. The information centre will offer the visitors information brochures, visualisations, and other information of interest regarding the R35 motorway project; in addition, a new R35 presentation was launched at www.r35.eu.
The centre’s opening hours will be the same as those of Czech authorities (Mondays and Wednesdays from 8 am to 5 pm), beginning from 1 March 2010.
A representative of the RMD or the designer will be present at the centre once a month to answer the visitors’ questions concerning the details of both projects.
