Parties promise fast construction of highways

REGARDLESS of which parties make it to parliament after the upcoming general elections, the construction of highways should not slow down in Slovakia.

All major political parties see the completion of the D1 highway connecting Bratislava and Žilina and further to Košice as their priority, the Pravda daily writes. Only the Free Forum proposes to re-evaluate whether the construction of the southern connection to Košice would be more advantageous.

A majority of political parties want to complete the northern route of the D1 highway through Žilina to Košice by 2012, although no party has given guarantees.

Political parties promise to allocate Sk20-30 billion per year towards highway construction.
