The Moravian-Silesian Region’s Road Network

Major roads in the Moravian-Silesian Region include Route I/11 (E75) – the main international highway running past the cities of Rýmařov, Bruntál, Opava, Ostrava, Český Těšín and Jablunkov – and Route I/48 (E462), which has seen improvements in many sections, with the R48 expressway between the towns of Nový Jičín, Frýdek-Místek and Český Těšín currently undergoing improvement, too. The D1 Motorway has been completed, providing an essential connection between the region and the entire Czech Republic. As a section of Pan-European Corridor VI.b, it has also become a part of the north-south transport backbone and provides direct access to Poland.

The backbone network of the region’s motorways, expressways, first-class roads is supplemented by second and third-class roads, which are an important component of the region’s network and are owned by the region. Second- and third-class roads connect municipalities and cities in the region, providing them the basic conditions for life and doing business. The Moravian-Silesian Region’s road network is 2,733 kilometres long (to 1.1.2016) and has 1,117 bridges. The network is owned and operated by the Moravian-Silesian Region Road Administration (Správa silnic Moravskoslezského kraje, p.o.), a government agency with six centres located throughout the region.

More information about the road network in the Moravian-Silesian Region can be found at the Moravian-Silesian Region Road Administration website.
