F-D border at Saarbrückden with its ridiculous 10 km/h limit... :-)

I think it's 60 these days. Belgium-Luxembourg is 60 and Luxembourg-France is 10 km/h. German-Austrian border at Salzburg and Suben are both 60 km/h, the warning sign comes together with the word "Staatsgrenze" in Austria and "Bundesgrenze" in Germany. At Kufstein speedlimit is lowered to 100 km/h going Austria inbound, but no reminder signs in Austria. Austria outbound it is 100 km/h from exit Kufstein Nord anyway.

Some good news again . New road bridge is going to be build in Trenčín after 20 years of promises. It will cost about 30 million €. This government is doing so well to improve infrastructure, better than anybody would thougth imo.

So what they've done so far?

- overpriced PPP projects were cancelled
- 25 km of motorways U/C
- on another 50 km construction may start soon
- new by-passes
- 100 km of 1. class roads are being repaved, another 600 km are going to be
- 40 bridges are going to be renovated (I don't have a clue which word is the most appropriate)

hopefuly there is even more to come..

If fully new bridges will be constructed, then the right word would be: "replaced".
"Renovated" would be the right word if some worn-out parts of the old bridges will be replaced (for example, the road surface, bolts, corrosion removal and painting, etc.) resulting in the old bridge looking about the same as it looked when it was new.
Other possibilities are "rebuilt" (which would be in between the two options above), "widened", "doubled" (a parallel bridge built for a second carriageway).
So, the most appropriate word depends on exactly what they'll be doing. If some of the 40 fall into each category described, then "rebuilt" is the most vague and all-encompassing option.
One more: "updated" could be used when a bridge is brought into compliance with up-to-date standards by replacing, for example, crash barriers, lighting, road markings, etc. An update would typically be something less than a renovation.

Thank you. If I am sure these bridges are just going to be renovated, yeah but basically we get 40 new bridges.

I have a question:
If I came from the Astrian A6 can I turn back on this bridge over the border crossing?

While looking at those pictures it doesn't look that bad, but in reality it's bumpy as hell.

Yeah exactly, it doesn't look that bad but in fact driving on it is a pain in the ass. Sometimes it is better to drive via Belá-Dulice, Blatnica and Mošovce (have a look on map, i posted link), roads are good and there are some nice views and villages.

Bigger problem would be 1,2 km long bridge over Priemyselná street. What a shame they didn't build it as a D26,5, if it was needed hard shoulder could be used as a third lane, that would do it. Anyway I think that traffic on this section won't be so busy soon, but R1 between Trnava and Nitra might need widening in a couple of years.

Nice pictures, but also another example of unwise project. What are those sound barriers for?
