If there will no legal problems and stuff like that I consider year 2010 quite real. If it will be January 2011 it won't be catastrophe. Terrain is not totally flat there, but it's piece of cake in comparison with some D1 sections so technically it's not impossible. From where you got information that Nitra bypass is not part of the concession? I hear this for the first time, AFAIK all sections from Nitra West to Tekovské Nemce including Nitra southern bypass and feeder Nitra - Selenec should be built:
I just consider the date of 2012 is real, not the January 2011, but it´s the matter of different opinion. But, well, coming up from the presentation of Slovak PPP in August you might be right, that Nitra bypass is a part of PPP. But there´s come another question and that is approval, as this bypass still lacks some approvals, I doubt it could be started in next months.

I just fully don´t agree, that construction of this section is "full of cake", compared to D1. See, the number of bridges, for example: (north)eastern D1 38 bridges for 30 km section and R1 48 bridges for 43 km section, then costs for 1 km: R1 392 mil. Sk/Km - cathegory expressway R22,5 and northeastern D1 478 mil. Sk/km - cathegory motorway D26,5. So the costs for 1 km /eastern D1 vs. R1/ are comparable, if not more advantageous for D1, well, it´s the motorway, if both sections would be the same cathegory, R1 could be even more costly... For the comparison of the costs of northwestern D1 vs. R1 it´s true, because R1 does not contain any tunnels, while D1 does.

It's not impossible to finish this section in 2010. But, of course it can be even 2012 if there will be some problems.

I was referring to D1 between Dolný Hričov and Ivachnová. But, even every north-eastern section of D1 except Fričovce - Svinia and Svinia Prešov West has tunnel. But, since R1 does not have a single tunnel it's construction speed can be significantly higher than in case of D1 because tunnels need very long time to be built. Of course there will be plenty of bridges on R1, but this is not a problem which can significantly slow down the construction. If it won't be finsihed in 2010 it IMO won't be due to technical reasons.

Visualisation of D3 section Svrčinovec-Skalité. This was already posted in local Slovakian forum, but as it shows typically our landscape - many highways and roads runs through similar terrain, it deserves to be placed here. Construction should start next year. Author is Pragoprojekt company.

You forgot the second part of the video:



Here is map:



Broader view:


Both maps are from www.highways.sk


This will be with all those tunnels, bridges and viaducts the most beautiful motorway in Slovakia. But, I'm afraid it will be also one of the most expansive.

PPP project for D1 and R1 stretches

Several companies, especially from France, Sweden and Austria are the main players for the construction and operation of ca. 150 km of D1 motorway and R1 expressway. Some of them, and they are IMHO the main candidates for the constrcution and operation, have already solid experience in our market, either through Slovak companies, which are in consortium with them, or they directly constructed some highway, but also raliway and other infrastructure sections. I am especially curious for the first packet /from three/ of D1, which is the most important and most valuable, in which stands Bouygues with cooperation with Doprastav, Váhostav and others against French-Swedish Vinci-Skanska consortium.

Here is the press news:
http://www.asociaciappp.sk/?a=novinka&id=57&set_lang=en

Quote:
The first round of the concession dialogue with two selected consortia in the first tender for D1 highway stretches through PPP projects is completed. The second round of talks will focus on legal, technical and financial issues. The contract with the winning consortia could be signed in January 2009. In the second tender, the first round of talks with the selected bidders continues. In the third tender for construction and operation of other D1 highway stretches, the commission of the Ministry is evaluating whether the four applicants fulfilled conditions. The concession dialogue in this case will start after issuing a call for participation in the concession dialogue and submitting of draft solutions by consortia, which will fulfill conditions for participation.

The missing D1 and R1 stretches should be completed mainly by the end of 2010, the complicated stretches with tunnels for D1 in 2012 and 2013. By that time, 151 km of highways should be built from public and private funds through PPP projects, while costs are estimated at more than SKK 105 billion (EUR 3.485 billion) without VAT.

A map, showing construction spots, traffic limitations, repairs. etc. on existing motorway, expressway and 1st class road network of Slovakia. This is, of course udpated when some major traffic limitation occurs. More information at www.zjazdnost.sk in Slovak, well I hope, that English version will be available soon.

According to the official page of National motorway company D1 Hubová - Ivachnová (bypass of Ružomberok) is already two months under construction. Start of the construction was scheduled on June 2008. Of course nothing is going on there. This section is one of those which should be built using PPP and negotiations with the concessionaire are still in progress. Since there is planned almost 2 km long tunnel Čebrať I think the most optimistic date when it could be finished is year 2012.

Map (tunnel Čebrať is only 1054 m long at this map, but it's mistake, it will be 1967 m long):

Nope, the geological research is being performed now on this section. D1 near Ružomberok has valid building permit, it is in the first packet of PPP projects, negotiations with two consortia, Bouygues /and mostly Slovak companies/ and Vinci/Skanska are in progress, contract with concessionaire should be signed in January.

By the way, the number 1054 m is not the lenghth of the tunnel, it is the heighth of the hill Čebrať, which is 1054m above the sea level, see the posted map again. The tunnel lenghth is therefore absolutely correct stated. www.highways.sk is perfectly reliable source with the regular updates for some years.

I do hope there are geological researches on all PPP sections of D1 and R1. Proper geological research which would reveal all the possible risks can lower the price significantly.

Today, smaller section of R2 expressway has been opened, Figa bypass. As the AADT is around 10.000, the section has been built in half profile with the reserve for the second lane. Construction lasted two years.

Few pictures from the new section. Source: www.ndsas.sk









Here are more pictures and the video from the opening.

More good news: More highways

Article from Hospodárske noviny: Plán diaľnic prekreslia. Bude ich viac.


This article says that 2009 state budget should include EUR 664 million (SKK 20 billion) for motorways and expressways. It's two times more in comparison with previous three years. There will be, of course, enormous private investments into PPP projects as well. In present plan for year 2009 are prepared projects only for EUR 166 million (SKK 5 billion) thus it's likely more roads will be added. We can expect higher investments in later years as well.

List of sections which should be prepared for construction start in 2010:
  • R2 - interchange with D1 near city of Trenčín - Nováky, bypass of Žiar nad Hronom, Zvolen - Kriváň (behind Detva)
  • D1 - bypass of Prešov - section Prešov West - Prešov East), eastern bypass of Košice (section Budimír - Bidovce)
  • D3 - Kysucké Nové Mesto - Skalité
  • R4 - Košice - Hungarian border, northern bypass of Prešov
  • R8 - Nitra - Topoľčany - Partizánske - Hradište

Wow! 664 million EUR just for motorways and expressways! Latvian road budget is less twice!

Latvia has 2,7 million inhabitants, Slovakia has 5,4 million what is exactly two times more. If I compare Slovak and Latvian relief then for the same amount of money you can built more highways. So if your budget is less then half of ours then it's very good. But, if I compare Slovak EUR 664 million budget to e.g. Czech EUR 4 billion budget, then it's still not enough. (In mentioned Slovak budget are not counted private investments into PPP motorways which should be more then EUR 3.3 billion in 2009 - 2013 period.)
