Líbeznice bypass commissioned
On 29 July 2011, The Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic (ŘSD) has commissioned a Líbeznice bypass near the CR's capital Prague. The I/9 road begins at the intersection Zdiby (and the D8 motorway) and then leads to Neratovice, Mělník, Česká Lípa, Rumburk and the state border with Germany.
The Prague-Mělník stretch is prospectively planned to have four lanes and even the Líbezmice bypass, with mostly transit traffic with a large proportion of heavy freight, was planned as a right half of the future four-lane road. „ The aim of the bypass is to divert the excessive transit traffic from the municipality center,“ says Jiří Švorc, the Road and Motorway Directorate CEO.
Construction of 2.6 km of the road will transfer the transit traffic outside the village and that will improve the traffic situation and reduce the negative impacts of transport inside the village, such as car exhaust gasses, dust, noise and vibrations. Safety within the municipality will increase, as well as the quality of life and wellbeing of the inhabitants. The construction comprises also measures that will mitigate the negative impact on the environment and landscape in the immediate vicinity of the newly built road. These are plans and realizations of landscaping, proper recultivation of temporary occupation of land, noise abatement measures, appropriate choice of materials and constructions, particularly bridges.
