There's always an Avion next to Ikea in SK and CZ. I think it actually belongs to Ikea.

"Avion" in Serbian means "airplane".
P.S. I have just realised that Slovakia used SO as international car code before SK...

Sorry for OT.

SO is Somalia. I have never heard about SO used for Slovakia, perhaps there was SQ at the sticker and the line at the bottom of the Q was scratched.

The sticker on the photo has to be SQ, from the angle of photo and the low quality image it may look like SO, but that's unlikely. I remeber this "SQ" period after dissolution of Czechoslavkia, it was passionately discussed because for slovak language "Q" letter is unnatural to use and also partialy because of the reference to the WW2 republic.

According to http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_d...endung_stehend SQ was indeed used in 1992. I guess it was some kind of inofficial since Slowakia gained independence in 1993. And then SK was used.

SO was used in 1945. At least according to German Wikipedia... Perhaps that's the cause using SO and SQ in 1992 as a sign of Nationalism.

Thanks for your confirmation. I have found this sticker on the previously mentioned site:


It seems that SO existed for really short time, maybe parallel with SQ.

I have to say this section that has opened in August 2002 is full of traffix jams at 8am and 4pm. It means all highways are buildin to manage traffic for ten years??

That section of the D1 will get significant relief when the D4 is completed.

That section was full of traffic jams almost instantly after opening. There were plans for 2x3 alignment, but they weren't ready and politicians wanted to open this section in the elections year, hence they used already complete and approved plans for 2x2. It would take perhaps one more year to build it 2x3, but you know, the elections were more important.

Significant, but not sufficient.

Unbelievable. 2x3 would be sufficient. I have seen many cars driving in three lines, especially between Exit Ruzinov N Trnavka.

OT. Qwert have u something in common with highways in your job?

There are only bad and even worse solutions now. You might need to look at Google maps because I will use names of exists to explain. It is possible to upgrade D1 to 2x3 between interchange Vajnory and interchange Letisko. Probably there would be reduced hard shoulder at couple of sites, but that's IMO acceptable.

Section Letisko - Ružinov is the biggest barrier of D1 upgrade. The motorway there (more precisely between the incomplete exit and Ružinov) is built on bridge which is partially in the middle of built-up area. It's not impossible to upgrade it, but it would require demolition of few buildings and it would be quite expensive. Other sections except the Prístavný bridge could be upgraded at relatively low cost. There could be also problems with NIMBYs.

Once the incomplete interchange between Vajnory and Ružinov will be completed (a feeder of D4 will end there), it would be possible to upgrade at least section between this interchange and Letisko to 2+3 (three lanes would be in direction to Letisko).

Section between Ružinov and Prievoz could be upgraded to 2x3 with some compromises regarding the hard shoulder.

There are already being evaluated plans to upgrade Prístavný bridge i.e. section between Prievoz and Ovsište. This is the busiest section of all. It could be 2x3 without hard shoulders, but it would require major reconstruction of the bridge. IMO better solution would be even more major reconstruction to 2x4, because 2x3 alignment could reach it's capacity relatively quickly. Either way it will be very expensive, on the other hand this section will be probably the first to be upgraded.

Section between Ovsište and Pečňa doesn't have capacity problems (if there's a jam, it's because Prístavný bridge is crowded) because it basically 2+2+2+2. If needed it could be with some compromises upgraded to 2+3+3+2.

Not at all. I would say it's something like hobby.

How about building a new parallel bridge with one carriageway of four lanes plus shoulders and then rebuilding Pristavny bridge to be a single carriageway in the other direction? It seems to me that would be the least disruptive to the current heavy traffic.
