The construction commencing today, together with the already constructed Phase I, solves the construction of an increased capacity bypass of Frýdek-Místek which will divert all transit traffic from the city. This will significantly reduce noise in the city, improve air quality and significantly increase safety. The construction of the bypass will also remove the last section of the D48 motorway which runs through this densely built-up area. However, the bypass of Frýdek-Místek is not the only construction currently underway on the D48. We are also building the motorway covering the section between Rybí and Rychaltice and next year we will start construction between Bělotín and Šenov near Nový Jičín,” said Radek Mátl, authorized director the Road and Motorway Directorate while introducing the construction of the D48 motorway.
The current route through Frýdek-Místek causes negative noise impact on the surrounding residential development and is a source of frequent traffic accidents. No less serious is the fact that current carriageway is near to its maximum capacity. In order to continue to perceive this carriageway as a high quality road and to relieve the city centre from transit traffic, it is necessary to relocate the traffic out of the residential areas.
The D56 construction in Frýdek-Místek and its connection to the D48 is actually the completion of the Frýdek-Místek western bypass in terms of the D56 road and the continuation of the D48 Frýdek-Místek bypass. The construction of the bypass, together with the D56 motorway, will bring significant improvements to the environment for the citizens of Frýdek-Místek and will not only increase the speed of the traffic but will also increase its safety and flow. The D48 motorway is an important west-orientated traffic artery within the Moravian-Silesian region. The carriageway connects the southern part of the Moravian-Silesian Region with Central Moravia and Poland.
