This is pretty weird sign. Under Nowy Sacz there's written Poľsko, which is Slovak for Poland. There should be rather white oval with PL.

D1 Jablonov-Studenec (Poprad-Presov), second profile, 5,2km. It should be finished in 11/2012. It's close to the road I/18 (on the left). There is almost no difference between road I/18 and finished half profile of D1, it was quite useless to build it like this.

We probably haven't mentioned it yet but in next 2 years 700 km of first class roads are going to get new layout and 40 bridges are going to be renovated. This summer 100km of I. class roads mostly in Eastern Slovakia (Šariš and Zeplín regions) are being paved.

One of the first sections was opened yesterday - http://korzar.sme.sk/c/6013628/v-hli...sek-cesty.html

3. Turn to Nitra (R1).


4. Rest area ahead.


5. Speed restrictions.


6. Full scale of new motorway signage.


7.


8.


9.


10. Exit.


11. After each exit a distance sign appears.


12. SOS.


13.


14. Approaching exit to Senec town.


15.


16.


17.


18. Bratislava is visible. You can't miss Kamzik tower.


19. Toll free motorway.


20. Attention! You're entering Bratislava!


21. 2x3 section ends after this junction.


22. The third lane is for the exit.


End.

Very nice photos!

It looks very temporary, we have something similar in the Netherlands.

Thank you for these nice pictures.

I think there should be white marking rather than this orange one which is temporary.

Great pictures.

Btw. me, being a Hungarian it is strange to have motorways in inhabitated area (AFAIK there's something like this in Austria as well). In Hungary it is disallowed, at the "inhabitated area" sign (=town name written in black on white background) it is mandatory to have the "motorway end" sign (=motorway sign striked through by a thick red line) as well.

Austria did its part, and rapidly constructed a motorway connecting Vienna with the D2. All the Slovaks had to do is build an on and off slip, and spell Kittsee wrong (Kittse) as the D2 runs parralel and against with/on the Austrian border. It saved me a lot of time on my way to Zvolen, which is a regular run for me. And now I'm saving even more time all the time due to the many upgrades further inland. A proper bypass at Nitra is urgently needed though.

Actually the Austrians were 9 years late. The D4 opened in 1998, the Austrian A6 not until late 2007.

They've built it as soon as the D2 has been upgraded and repaired through Bratislava, and the borders opened between the two countries, encouraging free travel. I've travelled there before and after that all happened from 2005 to now.

I was just gonna ask if he was joking.

Nitra was pain in the ass, same as the missing sections of R1. 54 km long strech between Selenec (Nitra) and Tekovské Nemce (Nemce means something like Germans lol) should be opened on 28.9. though.

They have not yet fully opened the border. They are not yet in compliance with European Regulation 562/2006 Article 22. The reduced speed limits at the border are illegal.

"Member States shall remove all obstacles to fluid traffic flow at road crossing-points at internal borders, in particular any speed limits not exclusively based on road-safety considerations."

This is true for all road crossings between EU member states in the Schengen Zone. If you know of such a border crossing with a reduced speed limit at the border (i.e. lower at the border than both before the border and after the border) then a complaint to the European Commission should eventually result in having the speed limit raised to the lower of the two limits on either side of the border. PM me for how to complain to the European Commission.

This Slovak solution seems weird to me as well, e.g. when you enter a motorway in Poland, you automatically leave a built-up area. It doesn't matter if certain motorway runs within city limits or not.

Ok um... Motorway borders between Luxembourg and France/Belgium, German/French border at Saarbrueken and it took a long time for the French to remove obstacles on the borders with Spain and Belgium.
