^ I know; that's why I think BA won't have a ringroad so soon.

But, it will be certainly sooner than R3. Construction should start in 2012, but because it is in Slovakia it will be rather 2015 I guess:



There is proposed also variant with two shorter tunnels, but there is strong oppoition against it.

I've found this interresting road quality map. I've noticed that the worst quality is near Bratislava and in Prešovský, Košický and Banskobystrický region.



Yellow - Good
Blue - Adequate
Red - Inadequate

Thank you dhlennon. This photo is for you. It's not motorway, neither expressway, just ordinary second class road near village Podbanské. But, who cares, I love it:

Is that the Kriváň? (I'm talking about the peak in the pic, part of the Tatra range of course)

Awesome drive, BTW! But the portions where the storm ripped the trees are really depressing! I hope the forest will restore itself soon!

Yes, it's Kriváň. And yes, that storm caused enormous disaster. It will take more than 100 years till the forest will look like before. But, hundreds of thousands of the new trees are being planted so the situation is geting slightly better.

Best regards and thanks.
I have good and also bad news for Sagaris.


Forumer blizzard.bb found on Slovak enviroportal this: http://eia.enviroportal.sk/detail.ph...-hranica-kraja

Banská Bystrica region made study about possible connection of Banská Bystrica and Ružomberok by new road. However, they made that study only between villages Slovenská Ľupča and Korytnica, what means only to the border of Banská Bystrica region with Žilina region which is right on the top of the Low Tatras.

Instead of one long tunnel they proposed several shorter tunnels with viaducts and bridges. Overall lenght of tunnels on the most ecologic variant is 9 040 metres and the longest one is 5 140 m long.

This road should be built in parameters C11,5/70 or C22,5/70. First one means it will be two laned road designed for maximal speed 70 km/h. Second one means means it will be expressway like road with 4 lines and it wil be designed for speed 70 km/h as well. It's still not decided if this road should be built as 2 or 4 laned. Fact is, that uprgrading of the 2 lane road on 4 lanes will cost more than construction of 4 laned road. The cheapest 2 laned variant costs are estimated on EUR 331 million, the most expansive is EUR 582 million. The cheapest 4 laned is estimated on EUR 497 million and the most expansive EUR 1.053 billion. That's quite a lot of money... And notice this is just only a bit more than one third of the distance between Banská Bystrica and Ružomberok.

Another problem are enviromentalists. This road should be built in National park in areas with the highest grade of protection.

Tento rok má byť odovzdaných 22 kilometrov diaľnic


BRATISLAVA 25. januára (SITA) - V roku 2008 by malo byť na Slovensku odovzdaných do užívania okolo 22 kilometrov nových úsekov na diaľnici D1 a rýchlostných cestách R2 a R4. Ich investičná hodnota dosahuje celkovo 1,251 mld. Sk. Podľa vládou schváleného diaľničného programu pribudnúť by mala druhá a tretia časť úseku D1 Mengusovce - Jánovce v dĺžke vyše 14 kilometrov za 600 mil. Sk. Prvá časť tohto úseku v dĺžke 11,6 kilometra a v hodnote 947 mil. Sk má byť sprístupnená motoristom až v roku 2009. V tomto roku by sa mal odovzdať do užívania aj 3,3-kilometrový obchvat Figy na R2 a takisto preložka R4 vo Svidníku v dĺžke 4,6 kilometra. Rovnako má byť dokončený do plného profilu úsek D1 Važec - Mengusovce.

"Rok 2008 bude chudobný na odovzdávané úseky diaľnic. O to intenzívnejší bude tento rok z hľadiska začatia stavieb úsekov," povedal pre agentúru SITA generálny riaditeľ Národnej diaľničnej spoločnosti Igor Choma. Diaľničný program počíta v roku 2008 so začatím výstavby 17 úsekov D1, R1 a R3 v celkovej dĺžke 181 kilometrov a s nákladmi 26,715 mld. Sk. Z toho na 12 úsekoch má ísť o stavby v rámci troch balíkov projektov verejno-súkromného partnerstva (PPP). Na ich výstavbu nie sú náklady zahrnuté, pretože ich majú financovať budúci vybraní koncesionári.

V rámci PPP by sa mala v prvom balíku na D1 začať v tomto roku stavba vyše 78 kilometrov na úsekoch Dubná Skala - Turany, Turany - Hubová, Hubová - Ivachnová, Jánovce - Jablonov a Fričovce - Svinia. V druhom balíku PPP na R1 sa má začať stavba 43 kilometrov na úsekoch Nitra západ - Selenec, Selenec - Beladice a Beladice - Tekovské Nemce. Na prvý aj druhý balík už bežia tendre organizované rezortom dopravy. Zatiaľ plánovaný tretí balík PPP sa vzťahuje na stavbu takmer 30 kilometrov D1 na úsekoch Hričovské Podhradie - Lietavská Lúčka, vrátane privádzača, Lietavská Lúčka - Višňové a Višňové - Dubná Skala spolu s tunelom. Mimo projektov PPP by sa mala v roku 2008 na D1 začať stavba prvého úseku Sverepec - Vrtižer a tiež úsekov Jablonov - Studenec a Studenec - Beharovce. Na R1 je naplánované začatie stavby na úseku Žarnovica - Šášovské Podhradie a na R3 obchvatu Trstenej.

Shorlty in English: This year 22 km of motorways (D1) and expressways (R2 and R4) should be opened for EUR 37 million.

On the other hand construction of 17 new sections on D1, R1 and R3 with together 181 km should begin this year. 12 of those sections should be built using PPP. It's 78 km on D1 - sections Dubná Skala - Turany, Turany - Hubová, Hubová - Ivachnová, Jánovce - Jablonov, Fričovce - Svinia and 43 km on R1 - sections Nitra západ - Selenec, Selenec - Beladice and Beladice - Tekovské Nemce.

With government finances for EUR 802 million should start construction of the sections Sverepec - Vrtižer, Jablonov - Studenec and Studenec - Beharovce on D1. On R1 should start construction of section Žarnovica - Šášovské Podhradie and on R3 bypass of Trstená in half profile.

In Dutch it's PPS -> Publiek Private Samenwerking. It means the same.
