...

yes, this is the road i was talking about.
from there, you can continue to jahrndorf, pama, kittsee, berg and come to bratislavia through the old border crossing petrzalka-berg. you'll make nice round trip through three countries in just couple of minutes))))

The road further, in Zeiselhof seems also interesting, it looks to be exactly on the border.

ďakujem!

the first combination is nice, although in the second part between spisske podrhadie and stara lubovna there are mountains (levocske vrchy), the road is narrow, not in the well shape but not busy at all and you might experience some real slovak nature. some parts of the road are quite steepy. but why not))))

So, I was then thinking on these routes:
1. http://goo.gl/maps/iqF0b + http://goo.gl/maps/74FD6
2. http://goo.gl/maps/6EE4s

Second one is much more quicker, but I would miss the road from Tatranská Javorina. Will have to find the best compromise to reach Kosice in reasonable time, but also to cover as much nice places as possible

One more thing, on the routes above, do I need the SK vignette?

5 tenders were announced on March 1st. We have another 3 big tenders without result. It's pretty much and I'd bet, that some of them will "crash" . Those 5 sections are:

D1 Hričovské Podhradie – Lietavská Lúčka
D3 Žilina (Strážov) - Žilina (Brodno)
R2 Ruskovce - Pravotice
R2 Zvolen východ - Pstruša
R2 Pstruša - Kriváň

... or to be more graphic, those 2 pink sections of D1+D3 near Zilina and pink sections of R2 on previous map:

Is the northern bypass of Banská Bystrica part of R1? I thought R1 was supposed to continue north to Ružomberok.

It still is, because the project includes this part of BB bypass:

I see, so R1 will proceed east for a while and then turn north at Slovenská Ľupča.

Yep, Banská Bystrica - Ružomberok connection is feasible only with a long tunnel under the masiff of Nízké Tatry (Lower Tatras) and valleys of Moštenica and Hiadeľ represent AFAIK the optimal solution in technical conditions (length, terrain etc.) and environmental protection.

section D3 Svrcinovec-Skalite (PL-CZ border), that is in tendering process, has serious problems:

1. it's invesigated by Slovak antimonopoly office, because offers of construction companies are too high and too close to each other
2. EU (that should provide financing) is asking questions about technical solution and expected traffic. It seems like technical solution is too exaggerated and expected traffic is too low.

Hmm, the traffic volumes on I/11 are already quite high. I recon some of it will split off at Svrčinovec.

Don't forget many motorways in western Europe were built in times when traffic volumes were also very low compared to today.

The point of D3 Svrcinovec Skalite is to build direct connection between PL and SK, so trucks driving on E75 don't need to drive through CZ. But not every single truck on CZ/SK border comes from Poland. I/11 Svrcinovec-CZ border had 9000 vehicles in 2010, so expected traffic on D3 Svrcinovec-Skalite is 4 digit number and I think it's less than 5000. 1km of half profile cost 30 mil€. It's too much money for nothing...

I/11 is quite busy, with generally over 10 000 vehicles per day, including some stretches with more than 20 000 vehicles per day. That includes between 5000 and 7000 trucks per day, so a motorway is certainly warranted along I/11.

I/12 has far less traffic, with 2000 - 3500 vehicles per day, so I can see how this section should not be a priority compared to further south along I/11.

However, I do believe this section should eventually be constructed as part of a continuous motorway from Katowice to Žilina. Especially with Polish S69 becoming more and more completed, more traffic will utilize this route. On the other hand, Polish A1 / Czech D1 will siphon off some long-distance traffic, for the time being.

The downside of D3 along the I/12 is that the valley floor is mostly build-out, which means an alignment along the slopes must be found, which makes the project quite expensive, especially compared to its current usage.

it is, along 1+1 section between Zilina-Brodno and Svrcinovec. But they are going to build sections Zilina Strazov-Zilina Brodno (bypasses 2+2 road) and Svrcinovec-Skalite (not part of I/11)

There is complex traffic counting only every 5 years and the next will be in 2015 with results available in 2016. Pathetic, I know. OTOH there should be some data from electronic toll system, but they aren't public.

SK road n.15 near Domasa dam, not international, but still used by trucks driving from Poland to Hungary to avoid paying toll
