Sure, I know. I really hope it will be introduced as now it can be done without serious impact on the budget.

BTW, I would change D4 to D0 in that numbering proposal.

I don't think that's even an official plan. The map Qwert posted is just wishful thinking of some people who want to normalize the numbering system.

BTW, a couple of news about the intentions of the Jan Figel, the transportation minister, from a press conference as he was announcing the start of the construction of R4 Kosice-Milhost:
1. They are planning to start the construction of D1 section Budimir-Bidovce (northeast bypass of Kosice) by spring 2012.
2. R2 Zvolen-Lucenec-Rimavska Sobota-Kosice is one of high-priority highway sections and will be constructed by combination of EU and Slovak budget funds
3. The decision about how to continue the construction of D1 Martin-Presov (PPP vs. EU/SK funding) will be made in the fall.
4. He also promised the southern bypass of Kosice (R2 Saca-Sebastovce-Olsany) but refused to give any dates (estimates are 2014-2017).

R1 Nitra-Hronský Beňadik (PPP): 45,866 km + feeder Nitra-Chrenová 2,065 km
R1 Žarnovica-Šášovské Podhradie (partly opened): 8,472 km
R1 Banská Bystrica bypass (PPP): 5,300 km
R3 Trstená bypass (partly opened): 7,200 km
R3 Horná Štubňa bypass: 4,321 km
R4 Košice-Milhosť: 14,190 km
R4 Svidník bypass: 4,573 km

So total it is: 89,922 km + 2,065 Nitra feeder (which will not be a part of R1).

Deadline for securing PPP finances for D1 motorway has expired, the project ended before it could start. good news is, we will not pay 9,1 bil. €/30 years for 75 km motorway. Deadline for PPP3 is end of the next month.

government wants to use eurofunds (wit st. budged cofinancing), maybe another - smaller PPP projects. the plans for next year are to start 2 important sections of D1 and one section R2

- hubova-ivachnova (bypass of ruzomberok)
- janovce-jablonov (bypass of levoca)
- bypass of ziar nad hronom

in 2012 they plan to start another sections of D1, sections R2, 1 section D3. preparation of expressway R7 (new variant for connection to city roads of bratislava) and D4 (so-called big bypass of capital) will continue. construction will start (maybe) in 2014.

2011 vignette prices

Price for 1 year vignette in Slovakia is going to be increased in 2011 by 37 % from current 36.50 € to 50 €. This measure should bring aditional 14 million € to the national budget. Prices for 1 month (9.90 €) and 1 week (4.90 €) vignettes will probably remain intact next year.

Talking about the future: what is the current status of the missing sections of D3?

Here is list of the sections of D3 which shows in which state of preparation particular sections are.

  • Žilina, Strážov - Žilina, Brodno is prepared, but competition for construction company was cancelled and it's not sure if there will be new competition soon, because this section (north-western bypass of Žilina) is useless.
  • Another section Svrčinovec - Skalité (close to the PL border) is also prepared, but authorities have not yet decided if other sections won't be built instead, because this one is very expensive.
  • Section Žilina, Brodno - Kysucké Nové Mesto north of Žilina was supposed to be already U/C, but apparently there's a delay, but there is good chance its construction may start next year.
  • Minister of transportation also said that construction of section Čadca, Bukov - Svrčinovec (bypass of Čadca) will start in 2012.
  • The rest is rather uncertain.

Thanks for that. How will the section marked as U/C near the border (half profile as I understand) be connected to the existing infrastructure? The page says, that "križovatka" is not under construction, is this the interchange with the existing road number 12?

How is it useless? I thought it was meant as a big junction of D1 and D3 as well as city's bypass, seems reasonable to me

I think the terrain there is what it is, can't see how one could build a cheap road connecting our countries, unfortunately.

Exactly. I never understood the vignettes, they are a general annoyance for the occasional visitor, yet don't bring in any significant revenue. Even € 100 million is nothing compared to the national budget. It would be way better and practical to increase the fuel tax by 1 or 2 cents.

I mean, how many cars does Slovakia has? Maybe 3 million? Multiply that by € 50, and you'll see the revenue is only € 150 million. A nice amount of money, but just enough to construct 10 - 12 kilometers of new motorway per year.

I do agree with a truck toll, since their wear and tear on the roads is many times worse than a passenger car. I've read a 2 tonne vehicle generates the same kind of wear as 16 1 tonne vehicles. Not to mention the axle load of passenger vehicles is generally not much more than 0.8 tonnes, while it can be as much as 8 - 11 tonnes for trucks. However, Europe need to come up with a single EU tolling system, not a separate one for every single country. Currently, there are maybe as much as 10 different toll systems in Europe for trucks.

(vignettes, eurovignettes, toll barriers, schwerverkehrsabgabe, LKW-maut, premid, emyto, Karty opłat drogowych, GO-box, etc)

New government needs to save money and build more important motorway D1, but IMO they will start to build at least 1 section of D3 until next elections, probably Cadca-Svrcinovec (CZ border). EU funds were planned to use on D3, but now they are being moved on sections thet were part of cancelled PPP package: Ruzomberok bypass and Levoca bypass (Hubova-Ivachnova and Janovce-Jablonov).

The section near border is called Skalité - PL border. It's divided into to parts. First very short right at the border is already in use (it's basically border-crossing with couple of meters of adjacent motorway which is connected toe the old road - I/12). Second one is U/C and it will be U/C until next section Svrčinovec - Skalité will be completed, because due to the local terrain conditions it's impossible to connect it to the I/12 for reasonable price. For now it literally ends in the middle of the field.

The "križovatka" mentioned at the page is not interchange which will connect the second part of the section Skalité - PL border to I/12. It will be interchange which will ensure better and permanent connection of the first (already temporarily connected) part. It's a bit confusing, I know.

2x2 road starts couple of km before Žilina and then it continues at 2x2 Žilina inner ring and then at 2x2 road I/18 which is connected to already built section of D3. In other words, there is paralel 2x2 road to this section. Žilina needs southern bypass, northwestern is not that needed.

It's not possible to build this connection cheaper, but there is road also via Czech Republic which isn't any longer, that's why there is discussion whether we should build this section or rather other sections of D3. Svrčinovec - Skalité is 12.3 km long and it costs 476 million €.

Well, Čadca Bukov - Svrčinovec is more or less sure. IMO they will think about construction of at least one more section. This government promised to improve connection with Poland and there will be additional about 1 billion € for motorways (of course majority will go to D1).

Is that the toll? The tolls should be reasonably priced because that encourages more people to use the Highway. Increasing the toll charge only deters motorists from using them (in my experience).
