PURPOSE OF THE CONSTRUCTION

Relocation of road I/11 to the position of the northern bypass road will divert transit traffic and relieve the centre of Opava.

The construction is directly linked to the construction of "Road I/11 Opava, northern bypass road - western part". At the end of the construction it is connected to the completed construction of "Road I/11 and I/56 Opava, conjunction S1" and should be linked to the future rerouting of the four-lane road I/56 Opava-Ostrava. The planned construction of the road "I/11 Opava, northern bypass road - eastern part" measures 1627 m and is designed as the category S 11.5/80 as the right half of the future four-lane S 24.5/100.

The construction project itself is a follow-up of the so-called Central City Circle Road, i.e. the construction project of "Road I/11 Opava - Rolnická road extension". By Rolnická road and extended Mostní road, it will be interconnected via the Mostní roundabout intersection with road III/01129 and ramp 12 with the main route of the northern bypass road. This interconnection will be the main access road from the West until the construction "I/11 Opava, northern bypass road - western part" is operational. Ramp 12 is to accommodate a future flyover, Opava-North, with the relocation of road III/01129 and extended Mostní road. This flyover has been designed as a tube-like shape. The main route itself begins at km 1.220 on the proposed Opava-North flyover.

From there, the bypass road first continues with a short stripping off that turns into an embankment. At km 1.658 there is a single pole bridge planned over Hillova Street, with span of 18 m. The route continues northwards past the solar power plant. Then it turns into a clockwise arc R = 1950 m, it goes on along the embankment to the bridge via a local road and road I/46 at km 2.507 – 2,622 ranging from 20 + 2 x 27.85 + 22 + 17.3, which is designed as a two-girder structure.

The route also goes along the embankment between Kaufland and the agricultural cooperative area, where it ends at km 2.975 and ramp 1 of the proposed Opava-East flyover following the relocation of road I/56. On the main route the road will be extended with a turning lane. Using Ramp 1 the bypass will be interconnected long-term to the ring junction, Kateřinský node, where the S1 connection segment, in operation already, follows up. The roadway is designed as asphalt concrete with a total thickness of 590 mm. The asphalt concrete coat is suggested to include four layers of thickness of 240 mm. To protect the residents from noise, there will be two 4m high sound protection walls measuring a total length of 866 m. Another 4m high sound protection wall is planned along the extended Mostní road measuring a length of 175 m.

Road I/11 represents an important road artery in the Moravian-Silesian Region, therefore, it has been decided to increase its capacity. Road I/11 is planned as a four-lane arrangement in the sections of Opava-Ostrava (D1, D56) – Havířov - Prostřední Suchá - Třanovice - D48 - Tošanovice - Hnojník - Nebory - Třinec - Bystřice – state border, where it will connect to the Slovak R5. Road I/11, together with road I/57, make a branch, the so-called Silesian Cross, leading the route to Poland – Bartultovice – Krnov - Opava - Ostrava - Havířov - Třinec - Jablunkov – Slovakia. Its other branches are the D1 and D8 motorways.

The four-lane road will start behind Opava and from there will lead to Komárov where it will be linked to the area around Mokré Lazce, via Velká Polom to the Opava District boundaries. From district boundaries to the beginning of Rudná Road in Ostrava a new road, 9 km long, will be constructed, of the S 24.5 category. The town of Opava has a road network system characterized by its fan shape arrangement. The backbone roads of this system include roads I/11, I/46, I/56 and I/57, which drive all the transit traffic to the city centre under the current arrangement.

There, in the incomplete inner city ring road, the transit traffic is distributed between the above named roads. This fact means that the city circuit road capacity is almost fully utilized. Unwanted congestion occurs and this has a significant negative impact on the environment. Relocation of road I/11 to the position of the northern bypass road will divert transit traffic and will relieve the central part of Opava. Due to the fact that it will bypass the city, there will be a significant reduction in the impact of traffic on the surroundings of the existing roads. The proposed bypass road will contribute to improved safety for all road users.
According to the applicable legislation, documentation on the construction impact on the environment was processed for the construction of road "I/11 Opava, northern bypass road - eastern part". The construction was evaluated in an EIA process and opinions of the Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic have been issued for it. The conditions that are stipulated for the construction by the Ministry of the Environment are fully respected within further stages of the preparation. Upon the completion of this project a significant improvement will be seen in traffic movement and road safety. The relocation of road I/11 to the position of the northern bypass road will divert transit traffic and bring relief to the centre of Opava.
As it is a bypass of the city, there will be a significant reduction in the environmental impact of transport and existing road traffic. The proposed bypass road will contribute to an improvement in safety for all road users. To protect the residents from noise, there will be two 4m high sound protection walls measuring a total length of 866 m. Another 4m high sound protection wall is planned along the extended Mostní Road measuring 175 m in length.
