I think its a flood area, and they didnt want to obstruct the waterflow with embankments...

Yes, it's flood area. Entire D1 is designed to survive 100-year flood without traffic closure.

Here is map of the section. You can see the interchange above is between river Váh and artificial canal:

Construction of D1 between Martin and Prešov (sections Dubná Skala-Turany, Turany-Hubová, Hubová-Ivachnová, Jánovce-Jablonov, Fričovce-Svinia - total length 75,032 km) should start 15th Oct. 2009.

http://tvnoviny.sk/spravy/ekonomika/...5-oktober.html

English translation:
Quote:
Should sign another contract. When everything is ready, 15 October start construction on the eastern highway, said PM.

The government should at its next meeting next week to approve an amendment to the concession contract for the construction and operation of the five sections of the D1 motorway between Martin and Prešov.

This is a project under the first package of public-private partnership (PPP). "The government expects that construction work will commence on October 15 on the text amendment to the concession contract is still being negotiated, so we will not further comment on its parameters," said portfolio further transport.

Sitting in connection with the preparation of the highway project today to mention Prime Minister Robert Fico. "There was an agreement next week on Wednesday would be to sign another contract and should be approved by the Government. When everything is ready, Oct. 15 starting construction on the eastern highway, as was foreseen in the PPP project," said Fico.

Sections in northern Slovakia

The state has a concession for the construction of sections of the D1 during the concession period, gradually made in respect of developments around the price of money more than twice the amount vysúťaženej. As part of the first package of PPP projects are sections of the D1 Dubna Skala - Turany, Turany - fungal, fungus - Ivachnova, Jánovce - apple trees and Fričovce - pigs in the total length of about 75 kilometers.

GUARANTEE FROM STATE

The state seems to be able to assume the guarantee for the construction of the D1 motorway through PPP projects. Cabinet is 19th August approved a draft amendment to law on state debt and state guarantees to allow state to provide security for a loan from the European Investment Bank's concessionary financing for the construction of the highway D1. Draft amendments approved by parliament in shortened legislative proceedings.

European Investment Bank will provide the consortium, which has ensured the construction of highway, part of the EUR 1 billion. The concessionaire must provide loan up to 800 million euros corresponding to guarantee the respect of the current financial crisis virtually impossible to obtain in commercial banks.

Provision of state guarantees in such amounts, says the Ministry of Finance, is the only viable solution to create a state space and the winning consortium for the financial closure of the PPP.
Dates of opening of these sections:
Dubná Skala - Turany -> 20.07.2012
Turany - Kraľovany -> 20.07.2012
Kraľovany - Hubová -> 15.01.2013
Hubová - Ivachnová -> 15.01.2013
Jánovce - Jablonov -> 25.10.2011
Fričovce - Svinia -> 25.10.2011

Google Translate for placenames is ridiculous

Anyway, great to see the remaining pieces of D1 going under construction. Too bad it's just before the winter, so we might not see a lot of progress until summer 2010.

"Fričovce - pig" is the best.

It's laying temporary asphalt layer which should protect road embankment from damages caused by construction vehicles.

Turany - Kraľovany -> 20.07.2012
Kraľovany - Hubová -> 15.01.2013

Jánovce - Jablonov -> 25.10.2011
Fričovce - Svinia -> 25.10.2011
And it's not true anymore.

Winning consortium must get necessary money before February 15th 2010. Original deadline October 15th 2009 was cancelled. Dates of opening of the section were also moved. Official excuse sounds: "Crisis". In other words, due to the crisis 28 banks led by Royal Bank of Scotland which should fund this project failed to provide needed € 3.3 billion. However, in the meantime our government signed additional agreement with the winning consortium thanks to which preparatory works for € 17 million will start soon thus in the end the delay may be not so big.

To sum up Slovak PPP projects:
  • 1st PPP - missing sections of D1 between Martin and Prešov: Preparatory works will start in 2009, main works in spring 2010.
  • 2nd PPP - R1 from Nitra to Tekovské Nemce + northern bypass of Banská Bystrica: Already U/C
  • 3rd PPP - D1 southern bypass of Žilina: Uncertain due to the credit crisis, but hopefully will start in 2010 either as PPP project or funded by government and eurofunds.

There's planned more PPP projects. Almost sure is southern half of D4 (Bratislava outer ring), officials are considering also expressway R7 close to Bratislava and R2 between Trenčín and Nováky and maybe some other motorways and expressways, but these will come after 2010.

Anyone of you driving from Martin to Zilina last Sunday afternoon? For the first time in my life (and hopefully for the last time as well), I saw police standing at the point where 2 lanes are merging into one and directing cars how to "zip"...
