Yes, but the main bottleneck a.k.a. Bratislava will remain. We need also southern part of the outer ring ASAP.

On Slovak motorways and expressways it's forbidden to overtake for trucks. He said the upgrade of D1 won't help unless officials will allow trucks to overtake. It's of course bulsh*t since minimal speed on motorways and expressways is 80 km/h and maximal speed for trucks is 90 km/h. Trucks are the slowest vehicles on motorways and there are simple no other vehicles they may overtake.

Of course there are! Other trucks. 5km/h difference for them may mean earlier delivery ,which is money for them.

Is word 'autostrada' also used in SK in the same meaning as 'dialnica' ?

If you drive 100 km with speed 90 km/h it will take you 66.7 minutes, with 85 it's 70.6. The difference is 4 minutes. Overtaking trucks are dangerous for other vehicles. Not to mention, what could be better than truck driving 90 km/h overtaking another truck driving 85 km/h and hindering in left lane for couple of kilometres?

Word "autostráda" is very rarely used. It's synonym to both "diaľnica" (motorway) and "rýchlostná cesta" (expressway), but it's closer to word "diaľnica" since this word is sometimes used to describe "rýchlostná cesta" too. You can find it especially in some older texts, but it's rare also there. In the video it was used probably because after the temporary upgrade D1 between Bratislava and Trnava won't meet neither motorway nor expressway standards and word "autostráda" don't have exact technical meaning like D and RC.

At least a concrete central divider is a must IMO. Any plans to modify this road?

It's about 3,5km long and it's wide, flat and straight. I've heard that it was build as an emergency landing zone for fighters Nowdays, it's good that it has 4 lanes, traffic is quite high. Average value in 2005 was about 17000 cars / day.

I think you'll feel different when you're that truck driver that's stuck behind a slowpoke all day.

I don't know about any plans to modify this road. It will be replaced by northern bypass of Prešov which I hope will be built together with eastern bypass so there is no need to rebuilt this road. Although concrete median definitely won't be bad.

Map of the bypass of Prešov. Northern part (R4) is between Kapušany and Prešov Vydumanec and eastern part (D1) is between Prešov Vydumanec and Prešov Haniska:

That's why minimal speed on motorways was increased from 60 to 80 km/h - to prevent slow vehicles entering motorway. The forbidden overtaking was tested on D1 Bratislava - Trnava before it was forbidden globally and number of fatal accident decreased there. Are those 4 minutes worth of human lives?

Why didn´t they build the bypass on the other side of the town? As I look on the map there is space enough(mountins) and it´s shorter, but I don´t know the area so it is only a question!

Most through traffic will come from the west (D1) from Bratislava, and will continue to the south (Kosice), hence it's a shorter route than circle all the way around Presov.

because part of the bypass is also part of D1 highway (Haniska - Vydumanec) which continues to the west from Presov (few kilometres are under construction, as well as part of intersection Vydumanec, known as Presov - Zapad)

this is how it will look at Presov - Zapad:

There is one more way to say that, who knows it?
