Did they forget to color old white lines with black color? Now it is mess with yellow and white lines all together. Yellow lines should be used only for temporal marking, don't they?

I hope those white markings will disappear soon. There are still some drivers who drive according to them.

Orange (they are definitelly not yellow) lines should be used for temporary signage only. Of course, these markings will be there for quite long time, but still they are only temporary because whole motorway is only in temporary alignment.

Here is another video which shows actual driving on the upgraded stretch (those spokeswomen could have been nicer):

They should just scrub-off white paint. It won't disappear itself anytime soon. And looking at the video, white color falls into the eyes in contrary to orange color, which looks bland, even if new.

Also I did not notice any SOS nichés for disabled vehicles, are there any?

The reporter looks like someone who likes to pick up fights in dodgy bars!

I drove highway from Bratislava - Trnava (and back) 3days ago and I have to agree with you..white vs. orange temporary paint is not best solution especially during day but night was much better because orange paint is flourescent but at midnight there was anyway a lot of confusion among truck drivers- they drove in middle part of highway (especially foreign number plated trucks)


Sos niches are non existent at this moment, but between BA and TT 40km is i quess 4 petrol stations and 3 restavrants

What a stupid idea with orange markings??
Especially they left the white ones. How long it is going to last like this?
It is just dangerous.

Moreover the lack of shoulder is also very dangerous. Imagine broken vehicle stopped right on trucks way!

btw, what is the speed limit there?

I don't see the problem with the road markings, if it's temporary. If it's long-term, they should change it.

Lack of SOS-lots is worse, especially for a road with these kind of traffic volumes. However, the Boulevard Périphérique in Paris is not much better in that subject for instance.

You don't drive long on BP (max. 15 km), and speeds are much lower there. I just hope there won't be many accidents on this 6-lane section.

White signage there isn't as resistant as normal white signage. It will definitelly disappear sooner than normal. But, IMO it's pretty retarded they didn't "erased" that white signage.

Orange colour will be OK when the white signs will disappear. They used it because this "motorway" doesn't meet criteria for any road thus it is only in temporary alignment and signs there must be temporary - orange.

I think there are quite some similar stretches in Germany, but I don't know if they contain SOS nichés. IMO they should add them but I'm sceptic in this. They only added acceleration/deceleration lanes. Now the question is when will the complex upgrade begin...

R1 Žarnovica - Šášovské Podhradie

As you can see this section (well, only its part) will be put in operation soon, several months before planned.
