yeah, I put these images in that thread too...

user "blogen" suggested the more direct ramps (black and grey) instead of the more complicated indirect routes across one or both of the roundabouts...

he drawed this routes in different color and said: "it looks like a maze in the amusement park..."

I made some objections:

- in some cases the elevation difference is too high for short ramps...

- for that ramps you need acc/decc lanes on the hillside and on the viaducts/flyovers which increases cost greatly...

- they create undesirable weaving effect and an exit lane on the left...

so I think its a very well planned IC it will be a fun to drive in it...

Proper modification of such complex interchange surely cannot be made after short look at the interchange and few minutes of work in MS Paint. I think guys from Dopravoprojekt (designer company) know why it's designed as it's designed.

I think it is better to concentrate and comment not only on interchanges when somebody has at least a basic knowledge about a reality. Just asking why it had brought so attention, whatever...

BTW, Dopravoprojekt designed some other fine works. You all will hear about them later.

yeah, agree...

(but I am not sure that I was clear:
"blogen" suggested some modification and I argued with him trying to explain why are his suggestions wrong...)

D1 Mengusovce - Jánovce, tunnel Bôrik

Construction of this tunnel on northern D1 close to Poprad is unfotunately delayed. It will be second double tube motorway tunnel in Slovakia after tunnel Sitina on D2 in Bratislava.

Construction company might now install technology and they should be completing the concrete works inside the tubes.
The latest photo from the Slovakian SSC motorway thread:

I've heard they had to demolish part of one tube and built it again.

I guess it was rather problem with integrity of ceiling. It's not like they had to dig new tube, just demolish and built new ceiling. It's probably similar to what happend during construction of Sverepec - Vrtižer section of D1 where they had to demolish and again built pillars of one viaduct because they found out concrete they used is too weak.

Well, the construction company news stated, that the reasom for the delay of the completition was due to "changes of the project of technology /air conditioning, safety, updated fire safety rules, etc.../ ". I would, however, rather believe, that quality of the concrete works has not been preformed sufficiently.
But then, if company will not keep and guarantee the date of opening, it should be IMHO fined. Mr. Choma stated that in this case the fines could be imposed.

It was supposed to be something like this, but the pylon in your post is slightly different.

We will see how the final outlook will look like next year. They might, however, slightly change it, I think visualisation resembles more like this picture /row of the pylons in the back/.
Považská Bystrica deserves, however, nice motorway architecture. The bridge will be one of the town dominants.
