This is probably the most up to date map of Slovak motorway and expressway network. Planned expressway R8 and Banská Bystrica - Ružomberok section of R1 are missing though:

EDIT: Expressway R8 and Banská Bystrica - Ružomberok section of R1 were added on the map. Now it's complete.



Orange - built
Green - U/C
Grey - planned

Dark Red (or what colour is it) - tunnel (built/under construction/planned)

Wouldn't it be faster to drive from Bratislava to Kosice using the R7/R2/D1 instead of just the D1 in future? I mean, it's definately shorter, and I don't know if all expy's are 2×2, but even with a 1×2 it might be faster

D1 is actually the worst option if you want to travel from Bratislava to Košice due to missing sections and jams. For now the best option is Bratislava - Trnava - Nitra - Zvolen - Košice (E58) that means D1-R1-R2 (although R1 and mainly R2 are not continuous so you have to use I/65 and I/50 instead). It's even better to drive via Budapest than on D1.

D1 will be the best option only when it will be finished all the way from Bratislava to Košice. Of course, when entire R2 will be finished at least as 2x1 E58 will become slightly better or at least comparable. R7 is far future.

R2 will be 2x2 from Trenčín to Prievidza, I'm not sure about Prievidza - Žiar nad Hronom section (near Žiar nad Hronom will be interchange of R2 and R1), but those two sections are unimportant for travellers between Bratislava and Košice. Zvolen - Lučenec will be 2x2 as well. The rest from Lučenec to Košice should be 2x1, around Košice it should be 2x2.

R7 will be 2x2 from Bratislava to Dunajská Lužná (near Šamorín) and possibly also from Dunajská Lužná to Dunajská Streda. The rest should be 2x1.

wow. quite a long expressway....

(or maybe you mean 4,321km / 4.321m )

EDIT:
oops, I forgot that the hungarian "decimal comma" is "decimal point" in english...

(and we use the "point" for thousand proportion...)

but why dont they build an embankment instead of viaduct (at least on the lower section, say bellow 10m high)?

maybe they dont want to reduce the flood area of the river(?)

In Slovak we use decimal comma too, on the other hand we don't use point for thousand proportion, we just left empty space between thousands.

It's quite complicated. So to make it clear: Mentioned section of R3 is 4 kilometres and 321 metres long.

You answered it yourself. In some places space between river Váh and parallel canal is only 50 metres wide and thus embankment would consume almost entire flooding area. It's probably also safer (statically) to built motorway on pylons which are on piles than on embankment which could be damaged by water.

Do you have any plans/visualizations for R3 Trstena - PL border?

BTW Is there anything happening with border booths in Chyżne?

Currently there is U/C bypass of Trstená, but it will end about 3.5 km before the border. Between this bypass and border there is not planned anything. You will have to use I/59, which, however, has almost the parameters of 2x1 expressway. There must be signed some international agreement with Poland to determine possible connection of R3 and S7, but this section is not needed now.

I don't know anything about the border boots, but probably they are still there.

They do. That's why PLH asked about it
These boots are at Slovakian side so we can't do anything to remove them.

It seems to be a lot of work which means it won't be done soon. I think it would last years until all border crossings will be removed or rebuilt into rest areas.

Maybe we can give this piece of land to Poland which would remove all boots from there.

They should remove it quickly, since Slovakia is using the Euro from today on, and everything is getting more and more expensive
