TE 11 – The D1 motorway:
Řikovice – Lipník nad Bečvou – Ostrava –Czech Polish border /Road Data Bank and the National Traffic Information Centre
Date: 3 October 2023, 7:30–18:00
At 376.7 km, the D1 is the longest motorway in the Czech Republic.
The tour will begin at the last section to remain unfinished, the 10 km stretch from Řikovice to Přerov, which is scheduled for completion in 2025. The subsequent 14 km section from Přerov to Lipník nad Bečvou, where it connects to the D35 from Olomouc, was opened in 2019. The 56.8 km Lipník nad Bečvou – Ostrava-Rudná section was divided into four construction projects, whose completion in 2009 joined the city of Ostrava to the motorway network. There are several large bridge structures to see on the route. The 17.2 km stretch of motorway running through Ostrava on the way to Bohumín, which was put into service in 2007, was demanding to build as it passes through an area compromised by mining and with complex water management conditions. This section includes four large bridges. The final 6.1 km section from Bohumín to the Polish border has been in operation since 2012.
