This significant project has relieved automobile traffic in the Brno districts of Královo Pole and Žabovřesky. It is a part of the Big City Ring Road. The construction consists of two parallel double lane tunnels approximately 1.25 km long and two road traffic interchanges.  Tunnel tubes are running along Dobrovského Street and they are mined in a complicated rock environment, with the exception of their ends of about 100 meters. The Hradecká intersection in front of the western portal has three levels, above the Great Ring Road leading into the tunnel there is a roundabout for local traffic and on the highest level there is a transit route leading from the west and south to the north. The “Svitavská radiála” junction on the eastern side of the tunnel is also a very complicated transport hub.

The project was awarded by the Czech Chamber of Chartered Engineers and Technicians Engaged in Construction as the Building of the Year 2013 and was also awarded as Transport Construction / Technology / Innovation of the Year 2012.
