The excursion starts from the border of the Czech Republic with Poland inland. The last section Bohumín – the border with Poland, 6.1 km long, was put into operation in 2012. The challenging 17.2 km long section of the motorway through Ostrava to Bohumín was put into operation in 2007. The route passes through undermined areas and has difficult water management conditions. There are four large bridges on the route – over Polanecká Street and the railway line (582 m), over the railway line and the Opava River (738 m), over the Odra River (400 m) and over the Antošovice Lake (606 m). The 56.8 km long Ostrava Rudná – Lipník nad Bečvou section was divided into four structures. After its completion in 2009, Ostrava was connected to the motorway network. There are several large bridge structures on this route – a flyover over the valley of the Splavná stream (481 m), a flyover over the Luha stream (665 m), a flyover over the Odra valley and the railway line near Mankovice (844 m) and over the Husí stream in Hladke Životice (840 m), a flyover over the valleys of the Bílovka, Jamník and Sezina streams (637 m). The construction also includes the 1080 m long Klimkovice tunnel. The 14-kilometre section Lipník nad Bečvou – Přerov was put into operation in 2019 and is connected to the D35 motorway from Olomouc. On the only unfinished ten-kilometre section Přerov – Řikovice, whose completion is set for 2025 (construction visit), the excursion’s professional programme will be completed.
