Land ownership problems continue to cause years of delays on important Czech motorway projects, reports Czech Television, but progress is finally begin made. One of the bottlenecks it reported on Monday night were the two pieces of land the Czech Highway Authority (RSD) needs in order to begin work on the second phase of the Pilsen bypass. One of them has been the focus of a legal battle between two heirs who are arguing over several wills left by the original owner. Pilsen has convinced the pair to accept a deposit on the land and to receive payment for the remainder once the courts rule on which of the wills is valid. With the remaining piece of land, a city office has approved its forced purchase, but the owner has appealed the decision on grounds of potential bias.

Land has also been at the heart of the state's inability to complete a portion of the D3 at Ševětín, just north of České Budějovice. In this case, the RSD simply didn't pay for the land in time after the approvla of its forced purchase so the owner demanded it be returned. The state is now requesting its forced purchase again.
