I've found information about opening of D1 between Mengusovce and Jánovce. Project was of course delayed. Motorway Mengusovce - Poprad letisko (airport) including tunnel Bôrik will be finished in April 2009. Poprad letisko - Poprad Matejovce will be opened in October 2008. Original deadline was July. Poprad Matejovce - Jánovce will be finished in October 2008 as well, but in half profile (2x1 lanes). Construction of the second half of the motorway will start immediately and thus it will be finished in 2009.

Pretty bad looking accident on Harbour bridge (motorway D1) in Bratislava from security camera. Empty Czech truck was literally blown by wind. What is more, the driver was drunk. It caused big jams in Bratislava. Fortunatelly, nobody was injured.

I've seen such a similar video from an empty truck on the A16 (NL) during a storm. We often underestimate the power of wind and water.

Tha accident itself wasn't very awful. Nobody was injured and damages costed only SKK 50,000 (EUR 1,650). More awful were traffic jams in whole city caused by 60 minutes closure of the bridge.

Yes. This actually wasn't first such accident on this place. Some time ago one truck nearly fell into Danube.

Yeah, though the crash is not as spectacular as the Bratislava one, it looks scary. Imagine being in that truck. It was during on of the heaviest storms in the last years.

Great scenery. I've been in the High Tatras last summer. It was great, but the hiking paths are a bit crowded sometimes. The 539 itself is a beautiful road. Unfortunately I haven't been any further west on this road than Strbske Pleso.

Thank you guys.

And now something different. Recently there was opened the very last section of motorway D3 before Žilina (when arriving from Bratislava of course). It was rather 1,5 km long second half of estacade, first one was opened sooner. Problem is that while motorway is finished its feeder in Žilina's quarter Strážov is still U/C. And even when the feeder will be finished, there will be two crossing with traffic lights. Such "funny" situation will last at least till 2012 when the motorway bypass of Žilina will be finished.

This article contains two videos which show terrible traffic jams in Žilina, enjoy: http://www.sme.sk/c/3935947/Chaos-v-...semaformi.html
