Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic Could Transform Itself to State Company

According to the Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka the Road and Motorway Directorate of the Czech Republic could transform from contributory organization to state company. This would according to Bohuslav Sobotka help the state to control the quality of construction of motorways. This change would also be beneficiary in respect to employees’ conditions as their salary could raise and it could help in attracting much needed professional designers that would be able to control the projects in a more effective way. Prime Minister Sobotka also clearly stated that he wanted Minister of Transportation Antonín Prachař to solve the issue of missing director of the Directorate. Prime Minister also wants the Minister of Transportation to speed up the construction of transportation infrastructure and to stabilize the personell situation of ČD management by the end of this year. In the reaction to latest events Bohuslav Sobotka also said that the government coalition would refuse the draft of program of the upcoming extraordinary meeting of the Chamber of Deputies concerning public procurement in transportation.
