Slovakia has electronic toll for vehicles above 3.5 t and vignettes for vehicles under 3.5 t.

50 € for a year vignette isn't that much when compared to neighbouring and close countries. For example in Hungary it's 131 €, in Austria it's 76.20 € and in Slovenia 95 €. It's a bit cheaper only in Czech Republic - 48 €.

BTW, Ministry of Transportation is thinking about replacement of 1 week vignette by 10 days vignette, but its price is unknown for now. They may change also price of 1 month vignette.

So a U.S. vignette would cost € 1.500 per year?

Actually, the size doesn't really matter that much. Most people don't drive all motorways anyway. For most people, the general radius of their trips is no more than 100 kilometers.

I think you just can mind that Slovakia doesn`t have basic motorway network! And you can`t say that about CZ, A and H.

Btw, next year when R1 will be in use it means that (West) half of Slovakia will have basic motorway network.

But still many parts will missing- D4, R7, R2 Trenčín-Prievidza mainly and than parts of D3

That is quite narrow for an expressway. Are there frequent SOS niches?

There are no niches. R1 is basically 2x2 national road turned into expressway simply by changing signs. Problem is those morons designed new sections also 22.5 m wide. Fortunately new expressways will be 24.5 m wide and there will be 2.5 m wide hard shoulder. But the most important expressway - R1 will be like this for a very long time. Perhaps some sections will be widened to 2x3 lanes, but that's matter of decades.

Example of old section:

Hey Guys! Could someone post a new map, just to sum up the currently finished and u/c motorway and expressway system of Slovakia?

What's going on with E71 between Kosice and Milhost'?

Section between Kosice and Hungarian border is U/C since august 27th. It should be finished in 30 months (winter 2012/2013).

Map would be great, but please don't mark sections in 3rd PPP package as "under construction". Nothing is sure until october 30rd, the date of finacial closure. Proposed price is 1,99bln € (just for construction)

I have read in some newspaper today that Mr Fico was criticizing the government for building this Kosice - Hungarian border motorway, instead completing D1. He said something like "Hungarians will benefit from fees of traffic between Kosice and Bratislava".

Now, is this realistic? Are any people actually going from Kosice to Bratislava through Hungarian M3 / M1? How much sense would this make in terms of time? (Approx 50km is missing between the Slovak border & Miskolc in Hungary, plus M0 Budapest south is currently very congested.)

they are, and construction of R4 won't change anything. Improvements of Budapest bypass are more important

I noticed this is an expressway. Will it be 2x2 or 1x2?

Yeah, funny thing that he started construction before elections to get some more votes from Eastern Slovakia. And anyway, as i15 said many people use this way but Slovak section (R4) is not crowded so it is useless.

It will be "field-to-field" expressway. On the northern terminus it will be connected with 1+1 national road 68 and on southern terminus to destroyed former chceckpoint in Milhosť. And between Košice and Milhosť you will save maybe 10 minutes.
