We use English abbreviation PPP and your translation is correct, but in newspapers is ussually used translation "verejno-súkromné partnerstvo." We don't use Slovak abbreviation for that.

Gay bridge? To be frank i don't think that color suits within the landscape.

I expected such rections. I don't like that colour as well. I hope after couple of winters it will change on some more decent one.

On every motorway section are used different colours and they probably have to use also such, ehm, strange colours because all normall ones are alredy used. Or there was some discount for this colour, who knows...

Maximal allowed speed on some sections of Slovak motorways should be increased from present 130 on 140 or 160 km/h. Higher speed limit should be on almost whole D2, D1 Piešťany - Považská Bystrica and on some new sections of D1. All those sections must be fenced and metal crashbarriers should be replaced by concrete ones. On the other hand maximal allowed speed in built up area should decrease on 50 km/h from present 60 km/h.

That's interesting. If that happens, Slovakia will be the only country in Europe except Germany with speed limits above 130 km/h.

What about that Italian 150km/h? Or is that just an urban legend? I have never seen any proof of it.

Well, many drivers drive already like in Germany.

Motorway D2 outside Bratislava was designed for speed 160 km/h as well as motorway D1 Bratislava - Senec. Other sections are designed for speed 130 km/h, but if they are in flat terrain you can drive there 140 or 160 without any problems.

Design speed doesn't say too much about the motorway. Dutch motorways are designed at 120/140km/h, though you can reach 300km/h when there is no traffic. It's more about the design of the exits and deceleration ramps, and interchanges.

German motorways are generally the same or worse designed like in the Netherlands, though you can drive unlimited on German Autobahnen, while 120km/h applies in NL.

Of course you can reach 300. With that design I've meant that curves, slopes, but also interchanges, decelerations ramps and so on are able to carry on even 160 km/h on D2 and some sections of D1. Problem is obviously traffic. For example on mentioned D1 Bratislava - Senec you can celebrate if you manage to drive 80 due to enormous traffic. However, traffic on D2 outside Bratislava sometimes allows you to drive even 300.

On D2 will be for sure 160 while on D1 will be rather 140 and maybe 160 on some stretches, but I doubt. I think there's no need to rebuild exits or interchanges if the speed will increase only from 130 to 140.

The speed record on a dutch highway is 350 km/h (not in a race or something, just someone in a hurry) on the Afsluitdijk, A7.

Anyway, this topic is about Slovakia. Does anyone know when the tunel Borik and the Poprad bypass are finished?

Subsection Mengusovce - Poprad and Poprad - Matejovce including part of Poprad bypass will be finnished this summer, only tunnel Bôrik in the beginning of 2009. The rest (Matejovce - Jánovce) in 2009 as well.

What is on this map will be finished this year (except Bôrik):


What is on this map will be finished in 2009, but in half profile only:

I've traveled most of Italian 6-laned motorways in past two years and never seen any limit above 130 km/h. So it's probably more of a urban legend than anything else.

Didn't Berlusconi introduce it a few years ago and Prodi abolish it again when he came to power in 2006? I think I read that somewhere, not 100% sure though.

To ešte asi nevedia ani tí, čo to stavajú. O pár mesiacov budeme mať asi viac informácií. Malo by to byť asi niekedy cez leto.
