I don't know your tunnel, but sometimes websites and other sources show the total lenght, sometimes only the bored part. So maybe 2375 m is maybe the bored part, that added to 145 m of an artificial part gives 2520 m.

"Natural" tunnels are the tunnels build underground, without working on the surface, "artificial" tunnels are trenches that are covered after being dug.

Expressway



Today the section Lehôtka pod Brehmi - Šášovské Podhradie (20 km west of Zvolen near town Žiar nad Hronom) was opened for traffic. There is, however, also traffic restriction at small part of the section due to the landslide. Beside this you can now drive on more than 70 km long continuous part of R1. The remaining section of 170 km long R1 east of Nitra including bypass of Nitra is supposed to be completed in the Summer.

Seem, the first video is direction Zvolen - Nitra (or Banská Bystrica - Bratislava) and second one is direction Nitra - Zvolen (Bratislava - Banská Bystrica).

BTW, I recommend to watch especially the second video.

Dang those shoulders are narrow. They may not design it as a full motorway, but traffic will use it like a motorway anyway, so they better design it like one as well. This is just asking for trouble once traffic volumes are around 40.000 per day and every breakdown requires a lane closure. There aren't even frequent SOS bays like they have in Italy (another country that has narrow shoulders).

Yes, it's a problem of entire R1. I would understand narrow shoulders on the older sections, because when they were built they were supposed to be just 2x2 national road, but construction of new sections with such narrow (1.5 m) shoulders is pure stupidity. Even U/C 46 km long PPP section east of Nitra will look like this.

I agree, R1 will be pretty nasty when the traffic will reach about 40,000 vehicles a day, what is not that far future. We will probably have to wait until the upgrade on 2x3. But, first we have to built some decent parallel road between Trnava and Nitra and Žiar nad Hronom and Zvolen.

At least all new expressways are being designed with 2.5 m wide hard shoulder.

It used to be a motorway, then national road.

AADT is cca. 20.000 and 1/3 of this traffic stayed on old road. the traffic will be bigger in future but (central) sk´s population density isn´t 400 persons/km2 like in netherland. everything has his own special limits.....

On the other hand population density in Hron valley proper (not counting adjacent mountains) is pretty high and car usage in Slovakia will grow much faster than in the NL. In 15 years R1 could by quite crowded. Not to mention older section would need general reconstruction sooner or latter (Trnava - Nitra, Žiar nad Hronom - Zvolen - Banská Bystrica). It would make sense to upgrade them on 2x3 then as it's planned in case of the old section of D1 and D2.
