2. Jana Korytárová, Vít Hromádka, Zdenék Dufek:
Large City Circle Road Brno


Brief introduction to the problem: Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic. it is located in the central part of Europe, and within a distance of two hundred kilometers there are other important European capitals: Prague, Vienna and Bratislava. Brno is situated at the crossroads of the D1 (Prague - Brno) and D2 (Brno - Bratislava) motorways. Both of these motorways form part of trans-European East-West  (France - Ukraine: E50) and North-South (Scandinavia - Balkans: E55, E65) highways. This means that Brno needs very good road connections inside the city. The Large City Circle Road Brno will solve this problem. Its circular length of 20 km will be one of the most important elements of the Brno transport system. It will become the fastest connection between the external and internal parts of the city and divert much of the transit traffic. This paper deals with the introduction of this important megaproject. Purpose: This paper focuses on the management process of this megaproject, the relationship among the individual parties and it aims at identifying critical risks in managing the project. Design/methodology/approach: Searching for available resources and their analysis, interviews with project partners, the author’s own calculations
and conclusions according to the information obtained.
Findings: Analysis of main risk factors connected to the realization of megaprojects, drawing conclusions from this analysis and evaluation of difficulties in the context of their managing processes.
