Yes, AFAIK this is its last section. There will be possible to drive from the southwest of the city to the motorway D1 still on urban expressways: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=e...,0.319977&z=12

Yes, some people would add "unlike the rest of the city." At least that's what I heard from some Košice inhabitnats.

I know, I went there by train, and the outskirts of the city are really from the Soviet era. But when looking at other Slovak cities, like Poprad and Martin, Kosice is great. I made some pics of these commieblocks from the train. I will post them later, when my computer problems are solved

In 1964 Košice had 100,000 inhabitants, this number increased until 1987 to present 234,000. The only way how to give place to live for those people were commieblocks. Yes, it could have been done more tastefully. But now situation with look of commieblocks is slightly improving. Although, that commieblock posted by PLH is IMO more disgusting then those old before reconstruction...

OK, I think this is enough about commieblocks in this thread. Let's end it with this photo of Košice, you can see plenty of commieblocks there, but also many roads:

D1 Vrtižer - Hričovské Podhradie

Some interesting photos of recently built section of D1 from http://www.dialnice.info

Map:







And now some aerials:








I would say it's smooth as Struma, but crashbarriers are not very shiny:



Photos from www.highways.sk:














This where D1 ends. It will constinue via tunnels southern from Žilina. Link between Žilina and D1 is motorway D3 which will in the future reach Polish border and via expressway R5 also Czech border:




Map of motorways around Žilina from www.highways.sk:

Orange - motorways and feders in operation
Green - motorways and feeders U/C
Blue - motorways and feeders planned
Red - 1st class roads
Yellow - 2nd class roads

On this map you can see the reason why we have to build as soon as possible as much motorways and expressways as spossible.
This map conatains only first calls roads and expressways. Although capacity of some sections of our motorways is also smaller then traffic density.
Various colours show year when traffic density on some road will be higher then capacity of that road.

Purple - capacity was alredy smaller then traffic density in 2005
Orange - capacity will be smaller then traffic density in 2010
Blue - capacity will be smaller then traffic density in 2015
Green - capacity will be smaller then traffic density after 2015

The map is quite big so here is link: http://www.telecom.gov.sk/photos/dop.../priloha_3.jpg

Thank you Timon.

National motorway company has finaly actualized page so I ripped the most actual map of Slovak motoways from their site. Although, there are two inactual things - expressway R1 between Žarnovica and Šášovské Podhradie is already U/C as well as one half of missing section through Považská Bystrica on D1.

Black - built
Red - under construction
Green - planned
Pink - expressway by Slovak road authority

R1 Žarnovica - Šášovské Podhradie

(details here or here). I took the pictures from a train on May 6, 2008. The pictures show only the end of the construction (in direction towards Zvolen) as I've noticed it a bit too late.

D1 Sverepec - Vrtižer

Photos from www.dialnice.info of U/C section of D1 Sverepec - Vrtižer. Pictures are mainly from interchange Považská Bystrica centrum. This most famous bottleneck in Slovakia will hopefully disappear in 2010. Almost whole this section will be built on estacades and this iterchange will be also completely on pillars because it's in flooding zone of river Váh.
