great photo! Tatre look stunning. It seems like an alpine motorway. There is a railway close to highway I suppose?

Yes.

This "Pohľad z vlaku na D1, Štrbu ..." above the photo means: "Look from the train on D1 and Štrba".

Not so hard to find difference between Slovak "vlak" and Slovenian "vlak".

thanks God we have Slovenská železnižná spoločnosť not "Slovenské železnice"

And it is not Slovenská železničná spoločnosť but Železničná spoločnosť (Slovensko) (ŽSSK)
"Slovenské železnice" existed in Slovakia during WWII. Abbreviation was SŽ.

Sorry, I know it is Železničná spoločnosť (Slovensko) (ŽSSK). I have to know it because I am always traveling by train many times per week. I have to turn off PC and relax now..

so Slovenian corporaton is called "Slovenske železnice" so there was difference just between acute accent ( ´ )("dĺžeň"/"ostrivec")

btw, hofburg this motorway looks like Alpine even when is winter



PS: Veteran/guys I don`t have any pics of this motorway and I can`t find any of them on the internet, so you can post there something.

Tatranská Štrba - Poprad, Tatras are on a left side of a motorway so you can`t see it in this video.

Some pics of R1 - connection of towns Banská Bystrica and Ružomberok in Central Slovakia



green - in use (113,3 km), red - under construction (62 km), purple - planned (50 km)

Last section will cost 1 billion € and will totaly damage nature of a national park of Low Tatras (Narodný park Nízke Tatry), I hope this won`t be built.











and some pics of D1 Jablonov - Studenec 1/2 profile by NDS










D1 Studenec - Beharovce





D1 Svinia - Prešov, západ







D1 Sverepec - Vrtižer (km 0,000 - 4,900)

1. If that section will be built, natural park will be damaged (maybe not totally but it will be).

2. If it won't be built, R1 and Banská Bystrica will be in "blind" route. No fast connection to very important in that region D1.

Could a lot of tunnels be a compromise, could they not damage the natural park?

A 24 m wide road with a 400 m noise impact zone on either side does not destroy a whole region. I'm sure there are some mitigation measures to prevent a too big a loss of wildlife and natural area, for example tunnels or cut 'n covers.

I suppose that some people are too much against any road in natural parks. Of course R1 in Nízke Tatry can be dangerous for nature but after 20 years it will be necessary. There must be admitted some kind of compromise.

Look at A9 or A10 Austria - these Autobahns can be examples how to build our R1 in natural park.

R1 Banska Bystrica - Ruzomberok is the most logical north-south connection in the central Slovakia. International route E77 goes there, terrain conditions in central Slovakia are hard and we don't have money to significialy change the direction of this interntional route. However, the construction of this R1 will probably not start in next 5 years, east-west connections are more important.

This purple section of R1 won't be built anytime soon. These are just studies and nice pictures, but it will take years until it will be prepared for construction and the construction itself would also last long as it's pretty difficult section in basically alpine terrain. On the other hand, it won't totally destroy the nature in the National Park. It may cause some serious damages to the environment and local water resources, but it's far from destruction of the entire Nízke Tatry.

It's simply too expensive. For now we would be happy if some improvements take place at current mountain pass Donovaly (I/50). IMO the only section which construction could start in foreseeable future is Banská Bystrica - Slovenská Ľupča, which is not in the mountains. The rest between Slovenská Ľupča and Ružomberok (D1) is uncertain. Of course, one day it will be necessary to build the rest, but even in the most optimist variant it's matter of like 10 years, but since we are in Slovakia 20 years seem to be more down-to-earth.

BTW, R1 won't be dead end, if the numbering system is changed. R1 won't end in Banská Bystrica, it will end near Košice. The expressway passing Nízke Tatry will be called R5.
