I think it could be useful to mention also official name of that section (with those unknown villages) if some people decide to search for more information about it. With bigger towns it would be less accurate, but better for foreigners to get at least some basic idea where the motorway is so they should be mentioned as well. On the other hand, I doubt there is many people who know where towns such as Ružomberok (which has about 30,000 inhabitants) are.

BTW, yes, section Turany - Hubová is between Žilina and Ružomberok, or more accurately between Martin and Ružomberok (Martin is after all not that small town with adjacent municipalities it has more than 70,000 inhabitants).
Thank you for your tip Chris. It might be useful for foreigns and other forumers. If you heard these names so many times before as we did, you will also forget about people who doesn`t knows names of these "unimportant" villages.

map (this is old) will be also good, or just link with section

I hope it will be a concrete in Považská Bystrica. Sometimes it has to be an asphalt on bridge constructions. We will definitely see at 30th of May.

Btw, today I was near Turčianske Kľačany, near Martin-Turany. I was surprised, costruction is fast, faster than other sections of D1 Žilina-Prešov.

And what was you doing here? Hiking?

Now this region will have a motorway more closer. So, I`ll hope it will increased rise of tourism. Of course, there are still many roads of bad quality. The worst one is probably between Martin and Turčianske Teplice (South of Turiec region). Main part of this road is future R3. So better as reconstruction might be half profile of this future express way.

4,5 km of R3 in Turiec is already under construction http://www.dialnice.info/gallery/album.php?album_id=131

and map of this future section between Martin and Turčianske Teplice

I know that road. The low quality road, the billboards and the mountains in the background made me feel I was in the USA.

And yes, I was hiking there, in the Malá Fatra NP and the Vel'ká Fatra NP. We were staying in a holiday home west of Martin, on the hillside. It was awesome!

[QUOTE=amst;55220631]Exit from Bratislava towards Wien:



Hi Amst and all at Slovak Highways,

Many thanks for all of your contributions! I enjoy the quality (especially the rival North/South/East/West Slovakia comments - it reminds me of UK-based threads) and it's great to see that major projects will be finished soon, despite the economic conditions.

I have stayed in the Crowne Plaza hotel (sign shown in the photo above) about 28 times in the last three years - maybe my Slovak language skills should be better by now!

Thank you all for helping me out on my drive around Slovakia exactly one year ago. My actual route was: Wien - Bratislava (diversion down to Mosonmagyarovar) - Zilina (diversion around R6) - Skalite (diversion to Czech border) - Krakow - Chyzne - Ruzomberok - Presov - Kosice - Zvolen - Banska Bystrica - Nitra - Trnava - Bratislava - Brno. My main conclusion is that Slovakia is truly a beautiful country.

Overall I found the roads to be in good condition and not too busy, but then I didn't travel on a Friday night out of Bratislava(!) The only section needing real improvement was through Skalite - it's completely unsuitable for commercial vehicles (and not much better for a VW Golf R32 )

I have a question: what is the reason for strange blank spaces in the road signs around Bratislava? For example, the D2/D4 junction includes directions to Jarovce and Rusovce, and they both have a suspicious space just before the names. Is this to write "BA-" at some point in the future, perhaps?

I'm stuck in Moscow right now, trying to get back to the UK before the end of this MONTH Are any of you also affected by the flight shutdown?

Thanks again and regards!

Now I understand why you sometimes use the phrase ''UFO bridge''. Beautiful.
BTW, what is the origin of the Italian name of another (?) BA bridge?

and about this most :



Does it mean that when in the end of May this section is open, the motorway from Žilina to Bratislava will be completed?
