I have a 3rd gen Toyota Prius. It was really easy to avoid R1 with the instructions you gave me, thanks for that!

According to this site the PPP concession for the construction of D4 and R7 near Bratislava has been awarded to Cintra + Macquarie + PORR: http://www.worldhighways.com/categor...ia-bypass-job/

However I could not find any press releases about it on the Mindop or NDSAS sites.

Very nice text in the linked article: "Spanish construction firm Cintra, as well as Australian companies Macquarie and Porr"
Well, at least one of them is Australian :-)

Macquarie is a financial services company. They are often involved in the financing of concessions of big highway projects. Usually these PPP projects involve one major constructor, smaller constructors, a financer and some engineering firms. They often participate under a cool name like 'D4all' or some Latin-derived name like 'Via Posonium' or something like that (I just made these names up).

There are a lot of news article, e.g. http://spravy.pravda.sk/ekonomika/cl...cenove-ponuky/ or http://www.topky.sk/cl/10/1516155/Pr...a-uzsie-cesty-. The project page (http://www.obchvatbratislavy.sk/en/uvod/) is not (yet) up-to-date.

I couldn't find any time schedule though.

But those articles don't mention a winner. As far as I know nothing was officially chosen yet. The link from Chris is the first one to mention this...

There's two main options, in both cases the side road is in terrible condition (lots of potholes, etc.), so it doesn't matter which one you choose.
Especially go slow on ends of the bridges, there's big hump on both of them, so most cars scratch bumpers...

A crazy question has just struck my mind: Is it possible to purchase a new e-vignette without internet? I mean at petrol stations?

From what I remember reading, you can buy them online, at machines on the border, in shops and in petrol stations.

e-vignette can be purchased on every OMV station https://www.omv.sk/portal/01/sk/omv_...Sluzby/eznamka

didn't find any information on Slovnaft and Shell webpage, but I think they should be available on every staion in big cities and near main roads

I was just curious as I've read some official information on e-vignette and found out it completely lacks information on what to do if I do not have internet.

So basically, a 70 years old driver who was used to buy a normal vignette at nearest petrol station will come as usual and ask for e-vignette, right?

Page/slide no. 5 should be petrol stations selling e-vignette.
Not very detailed map if you ask me...

Yep, or he/she can buy it at the border crossings.

The problem is that it looks like many of the old sellers of vignettes outside Slovakia will no longer sell them, and the website makes it clear that they don't intend to expand the network for the time being.

I have a different question about the speed limit around Bratlislava D1 from Zlaté Piesky till the bridge over the Danube where the first 80 limit begins. Is there 90 speed limit or 130 ? Cause the signs, where once was 90 speed limit on the whole section of D1 Bratislava area, are turned around. Any clues ??
