trucks use electronic toll devices (satellite based technology), we don't need toll gates

No one needs toll gates. Toll gates have as much justification in the modern world as buggy whips.

Was this section of R-4 the most needed road investment in Slovakia ? I drove this section between SK/HU border and Kosice in 2012, and the road was virtually empty (Saturday summer afternoon). They are only one or two small villages on this section. I wonder what is time saving of this investment ?

Traffic is below average, but with high percentage of trucks. It can be pretty slow during workdays, because it's very hard to overtake. This expressway is not so necessary, but it's very cheap and finally has real expressway parameters.

time 1:18 - 2:15, car is driving from secondary road to road 68 towards Kosice during work day. Delay is short, but road 68 is definitely not empty. Intersection with R4 is at 2:38. As you can see, short part of road between border and Kosice will be 2-laned even this part R4 is completed

- What is the fastest way between Bratislava and Kosice? By D1 or R1?

- Which of this two motorways are under construction? Both? I think D1 is more advanced, but I don't know.

Regarding time it is comparable. The ways are merging in Ruzomberok and it takes similar time. Nevertheless, it is more relaxed through D1. The traffic lanes are wider, road is flatter, there are more roadside rest areas and fuel stations. The R1 expresway is expresway and therefore, the lanes are narrower and curves sharp a little bit. Also the terrain is little bit hilly so you have to put your foot from accelerator in some curves. R1 ends in Banska Bystrica and you have to take an alpine pass route through Donovaly.

Personally, I like the R1 road most. The scenery is much more beautiful and I enjoy every curve on that motorway - The alpine pass at the end is just an icing on the cake. That journey is far interesting than D1. But take caution of the weather. In winter, R1 road more dangerous and you are more likely to have an accident at Donovaly alpine pass which are also often closed due to snowing. In winter it is much safer to drive on D1.

Basically, R1 is finished. But there are plans to extend it to Ruzomberok. It causes lot of disscusions because of National park. The D1 motorway is U/C. It ends at Hricovske podhradie "(closed) interchange" and continues to Zilina as D3 (necessarily used with D1 since the interchange is not yet opened). From Hricovske podhradie D1 is planned in tunnels as southern bypass of Zilina to Martin. Most difficult and expensive construction works are expected here. Northern bypass of Martin is U/C. Following parts and connection to existing road eastbound of Ruzomberok are being discussed. Few missing parts and U/C sections are between Poprad and Presov. AFAIK southern bypass of Presov is planned as well

Is the Slovakian wikipedia up-to-date? The English wikipedia shows different states!? Which D1 sections are actually u/c?

Slovak version of Wikipedia is right.

@volodaaaa: R1 is basically finished, but there should be extension in the future. As you mentioned, section between Banská Bystrica and Ružomerok through the Hiadeľ pass, as well as section between Sereď and Bratislava. Section between Banská Bystrica and Ružomberok will be constructed by SSC (Slovenská Správa Ciest), what means that we will wait for it for a long time...

D1 to Trnava + R1 to Zvolen + road 50 through southern Slovakia. Google maps driving times are quite accurate. Only one mistake is, that road 50 Zvolen-Kosice is marked as R1, but it's not expressway, just normal national road
