I would like to point out "grob" doesn't mean grave in Slovak.

D1 Mengusovce - Jánovce

The last missing section under Tatras was officially opened today, however it will be put in use on 5 December. It includes 5th motorway tunnel in Slovakia - 1 km long Bôrik.

Great! In 2007, I was staying in Stola, very close to the building site of this tunnel. Those pictures bring back good memories

80kmh speed limit in 2x2 tunnel Borik is dissapointing, I hope it will be changed to 100

that´s true...for example in Croatia all Tunnels have speed 100 km/h...Branisko is 1x1 and there´s 80 km/h..

yes, 100kmh is even in the longest tunnels Mala Kapela and Sveti Rok, those tunnels are without emergency lane. I've heard that 100kmh is also typical in austrian and italian tunnels

There probably isn't even option to display 100 at those signs. I think 100 km is OK speed in case of such short 2x2 tunnels.

Italian tunnels usually have only general speed limit (I think the only one in Europe), 130 km/h.

That's exactly what I'm afraid of

Really? Well, in Slovakia, I think there is some rule, that speed limit is at least 20kmh lower, than safe speed Don't get me wrong, I do not drive fast, I just don't like when I need to change my speed every 5 minutes. I think that it's unconfortable and unsafe. Sloving down from 130 to 80 is as unconfortable, as sloving down from 100 to 50 when entering some village, or town

German investors are pissed about the fact that the Bratislava-centered and northwest-focused Slovak government systematically ignores the highway infrastructure and air connections to Košice and Eastern and Southern Slovakia (see an article and a commentary from today's issue of a well-respected economy paper; very inaccurate Google translations are here: article and commentary). For the uninformed ones, this is the price Slovakia pays for the fancy tunnels and highway bridges in the hilly north-west region from Bratislava to Zilina, where all the new highway and railway infrastructure has been concentrated over the last 20 years (despite the fact that the geography is extremely complex and construction very expensive).

At the same time, the flat and cheap-to-build-on southern and eastern regions of Slovakia are completely neglected and people from here (as well as the investors who come) have to use Hungarian highways and airports in Budapest and Krakow to be able to get to anywhere in Europe. Luckily, the EU is now putting pressure on our government: first the EU had stopped funding for several construction projects because of their extreme regional concentration near Zilina; now it is independent foreign investors who have to threaten our government. What a shame....

Get real DrX. It's enough you flooded Slovak forum with your sick opinions, people here don't care about them.

Slovakia will get two east-west connections anyway. It just takes time. I can understand they prioritize the D1 corridor, that's where the largest cities outside Bratislava and Kosice/Poprad are, plus most touristic potential is also located along that corridor (low and high Tatra).
