Yes, there will be two tunnels on this section - Korbeľka (5,87 km) and Havran (2,82 km).

What ringroad do you mean? Road I/60 already has status of streets/avenues in the city.

On the bypasses of cities Zilina and Ruzomberok we are facing "big" problems. I will not go into details as it not so important. These bypasses should had been already opened, but I am not sure if both will be opened till 2022, because of ongoing problems.

Korbelka is planned as the last remaining section on D1 on route Bratislava - Kosice. It will cost a lot and in my opinion we should spend these money to the others regions, where is good infrastructure missing.

But the new interchange near Rabka-Zdrój was designed with this continuation in mind. And a corridor for a new road is reserved.

The project page for the 2nd section indicates the construction period from August 2019 to August 2021. The contract was signed on 23th July and it was announced that works will begin in the "next few days". OSM indicates the 13.5km being u/c: https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/48.4301/19.5806

The first section (9.1km) is still indicated being in tender procedure. OSM does not yet show it (being u/c): https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=13/48.5018/19.4889

Can we assume that the 13.5km section is u/c and that construction works for the 9.1km section should be started soon?

That's good news. But wouldn't it be cheaper to build an S road rather between Chyzne and Nowy Targ? The terrain is easier there, although it would be a bit detour compared to Chyzne - Rabka.

R2 Kriváň - Mýtna (9.1 km) - the contract has not been signed yet, due to appeal by unsuccessful competitor. NDS says if there would be no further appeals, it could be signed and construction could start in October or November.

https://www.ndsas.sk/press/spravy/v-...bana-tomasovce


R2 Mýtna - Tomášovce (13.5 km) - contract was signed in July. Some preliminary works may probably have already started in August. We may consider it U/C, although currently they are probably only removing the topsoil at best.

It definitely would, especially that Poland is building an "undercover" motorway to Nowy Targ anyway.

Someone posted this concept map several years ago, but I have no idea what is the source.


Here is the "motoway" to Nowy Targ which will be built soon:

An S road between Nowy Targ and Slovak border near Suchá Hora that's less than 20 km of road in easy terrain. Trstená - Suchá Hora is about 12 km also in quite easy terrain. Little obstacle might be the bypass of Trstená is not prepared for such connection, but that is nothing serious. From Slovak point of view this would improve also connection of Orava region to Zakopané and Nowy Targ, which are quite popular local destinations. Such routing would be a win-win situation for everybody.

Slovakia is going to test 140 km/h speed limit on approximately 40 km long section of eastern D1 between Poprad and tunnel Branisko.

I don't see many possible purposes except implementing 140km/h speed limit on motorways....

It's obvious. I rather expect more detailed answer.

Purpose of this decision has been study drivers behavior, when speed limit is higher that general allowed 130km/h. The Ministry of Transport and Construction during whole October 2019 testing the speed limit of 140km/h on the section of the D1 motorway Poprad, east - Beharovce.

Behaviour will do not change as everyone drives there at 150km/h already.

In the future the 140 km/h speed limit may spread to more sections, but I don't think it will become general speed limit.

Not everyone. I am not familiar with everyday traffic at this particular stretch, but I drive regularly on motorways and majority of traffic doesn't even come close to 130 km/h. There is plenty of people driving with consumption in mind, trucks and buses. There is another big group of people, who drive around 130 km/h (or 140 on speedometer). There is much smaller group of people who speed. Plenty of them drive +10 or +20, not much people drive more than 150 km/h, although they are the most visible.

Therefore it makes sense to test 140 km/h speed limit on this not particularity busy stretch to see how people will behave.

Thats the reason why this section was choosen and not another... (due to low traffic and everyone is speeding already.)

On the west of the country highways are "crowded".. But, on the east where is low traffic, drivers are not afraid to speed up "a little". I can see this behaviour change when I drive from Bratislava to Presov.

It is not so long when 160km/h limit was proposed for some highways. 140km/h is low to test something as it is not even 10% increase.

Many countries have raised their speed limits, mostly to legalize an already existing situation. In practice the average speed is likely closer to 130 than 140, but it brings it more in line with the V85 value (the speed that 85% of motorists do not exceed). The speed limit ought to be near the V85 in free-flow conditions, if environmentally possible.
