This 23 km long set of structures (sections 512 – 514), which was put into service in September 2010, comprises the south-western motorway segment around Prague, and together with the previously built section 515 (Slivenec – Třebonice) connects the D1 Prague – Brno motorway with the D5 Prague – Plzeň motorway. This segment of the PORR passes through 2 large tunnels – the Komořany Tunnel (1,930 m) and the Lochkov Tunnel (1,660 m), and the entire valley of the Vltava and Berounka rivers is spanned by a 2,291 m long bridge complex composed of a bridge over the Vltava (236 m) and the Lahovice elevated roadway (2055 m).
The tour will end with a visit to the Rudná motorway control centre, which handles traffic control on this whole segment plus 20 km of the connecting D1 motorway to Brno.
