What is the reason for having two vertical expressways R3 and R2 when from Turcianske Teplice or Prievidza to the south could lead only one of them, if there were a connection between these two places?

That seems to be the R3, not the R1. Anyway, thanks for the photos.

That map is outdated. R2 and R3 around Turcianske Teplice or Prievidza won't be built.

So, will the E77 between Banska Bystrica and Ruzomberok be upgraded to a motorway instead?

R1 should be built between Banska Bystrica and Ruzomberok in 2016.
It is possible that R3 and R2 will be built in unknown time in far future but R3 will probably join R2 in Handlova.

so the section of R3 between this Horna Stubna bypass and Sasovske Podhradie won't be build and tunnel between Horna Stubna and Prievidza will be build instead. Current plans for expressways in central Slovakia are something like this:

plus, another expresway (R9) is considered it the eastern Slovakia, from Presov towards east (Humenne, Snina)

This is plan of former government. It isn't valid since June 2010. Current government doesn't have plans for many parts of expressways. It is likely that many parts won't be built if government won't change.

Do you have a map showing the highway plans of the current government? I suppose that the proposed north/south highway in the east connecting Poland and Hungary (through Prevov and Kosice?) would be a priority in order to get EU funds.

It's not like new government totally redrew map of planned motorways and expressways. All they did was adding R9 (basically Prešov - Humenné - Ukraine) to the plans but its construction won't start at least for 10-15 years and that's it. Governments rather tend to modify the priorities or financing, not general routing.


R3

R3 is not really a priority. There is one completed 2x1 strech and two are U/C. Both will be completed this year. It's more about bypasses of particular towns than construction of continuous expressway. The government wants to build more bypasses in northern part of the expressway (region Orava) and eventually connect them into continuous 2x1 expressway, but it will take years.

In case of R3 to routing preferred by the previous government is still valid. So the norther part will be connected to D1 neither in Ružomberok nor in Kraľovany, but between them in near Švošov. (You may need a map.) Central part will be connected neither to R1 in Banská Bystrica nor to R1 near Žiar nad Hronom, but to R2 east of Prievidza near town Handlová. So veteran's map is correct.


R1 and D1

The previous government also introduced a plan to built R1 (E77) from Banská Bystrica to Ružomberok. Current minister of transportation talked about this expressway as about an alternative connection of the western and eastern part of the country in case the construction of D1 was slow due to insufficient funds. It would replace current D1 Bratislava - Trnava - Trenčín - Žilina - Ružomberok - Prešov - Košice with combination of D1 and R1 Bratislava - Trnava - Nitra - Banská Bystrica - Ružomberok - Prešov - Košice.

But, today PPP concessionaire led by Hochtief announced 30% discount for project PPP 3 (30 km long southern bypass of Žilina - D1) so it's more or less sure this project will be successful. Project PPP 1 which contained the rest of inbuilt sections of D1 (75 km) was cancelled and those section will be built using state budget and funds of the EU. The preparation works already took place there and full construction of the first sections will start this Spring.

In other words connection of the western and eastern part of the country will be D1 Bratislava - Trnava - Trenčín - Žilina - Ružomberok - Prešov - Košice and thus construction of R1 (E77) Banská Bystrica - Ružomberok is not priority anymore. It OTOH doesn't mean this expressway won't be built, but mentioned 2016 is more likely the date when the construction will start than the date when it would be completed. Construction of R1 also doesn't mean R3 won't be built. The northern part between PL border and D1 and the southern between R1 and H border must be built anyway and the central part would be quite important national connection so it should be built even if E77 transit used R1.


Sorry for long reply.

Plans of current government are changing every month. It is still uncertain what and when will be built. They didn't confirm plans of former gov. for e.g. R2, R3 and R8 except some bypasses.
Some parts of R4 between Poland and Hungary are U/C. It is already decided that other parts will be built.

What new government wants to build in next year?

New government already started construction of R4 near Hungary. In next year they want to start construction of 90,44 km motorways on nearly all missing sections of D1 and half profile of expressway R2 as a by-pass of Žiar nad Hronom. It means there will be about 150 km under construction next year if these articles etc. are not just lies..
