Absolutely natural process of enriching of vocabulary.
I think that suffix -ice was derived from word "silnice" which means 'road'.

I don't think so. Word silnice in Czech language IMHO don't have suffix. Siln-/Sil- is not a word. But Želez(n)- (from word železnice) is derived from word železo (iron).

I've read the official materials from "introduction" of word dálnice/diaľnica from year 1938. There is written that is was derived from/or the inspiration was the word železnice/železnica (railway).

I know some people from the Czech republic who are living in Sudets (they have partly German origin) and they use to call motorways in every day speech Autobahn. And declesion of this word is really funny (in Czech quite unnatural), e.g.: Jel sem po autobahnu. (I was driving on motorway)

In Košice we use to say Idem do varoša (I'm going to downtown) - város=city in Hungarian, mesto=city in Slovak - but when we say varoš, we mean only historical downtown)

I found this at (http://czechfolks.com/2008/11/15/the...eskych-dalnic/)
...VSDS was renamed to GRSD (Generalni reditelstvi stavby dalnic) - “Directorate-General of the construction of motorways” and the official name “dalnice” was approved. How did Karel Chmel come up with this name? He deduced it from the words “Long-distance roads” (”DALkova silNICE”).
The German “Autobahn” could not be used then since Czech roads had been planned to operate cars, motorcycles, trolleybuses and other at the time “unknown vehicles” - not just “autos.” If the dalnice name had not been approved, Czechs would probably be driving on autostrades or raceways today....

so, that big steel "thing" is machine, not another unique architectonic part, that will make the bridge 2 times more expensive?

Slovakia opens 254 mln euro highway tender

BRATISLAVA, April 5 (Reuters) - Slovakia has launched an international tender to pick a contractor for a planned highway project worth 254 million euro ($360.3 million), the Public Procurement Office (UVO) said on Tuesday.

The National Highway Company (NDS), in charge of the project, said interested bidders must have a track record of at least two construction works worth at least 50 million euros.

Companies can ask for information, further details and registration by April 21 and submit their binding proposals by June 27, when the NDS said will evaluate all bids received.

The planned 11.2 kilometres-long (6.96 miles) road project in eastern Slovakia, is part of the euro zone country's wider scheme to connect the capital Bratislava and the second biggest town of Kosice in the years to come.

The government of Prime Minister Iveta Radicova, in power since July, scrapped last year a 3.3 billion euro public-private road-building partnership with a team led by French construction conglomerate Bouygues .

The venture was part of the central European country's wider plan introduced by the previous cabinet of Prime Minister Robert Fico to speed up road building and narrow regional disparities.

Radicova's cabinet said previous contracts were unfavourable for the state, regarding them as too expensive.

($1=.7050 Euro)
