Government plans to create plenipotentiary for highways

Prime Minister Robert Fico has nominated the director general and chairman of the board of directors of the National Highway Company (NDS) to become the country’s first plenipotentiary for roads and highways.

Fico announced his intention to create the post a week ago, saying it would speed up the construction of a highway between Bratislava and Košice, which should be completed by 2010. Two stretches of the R1 dual carriageway must also be completed between Nitra and Hronský Beňadik by then.

The head of the Cabinet' Office, Igor Federič, submitted the draft to create the post at the Cabinet session on August 22, but the ministers have not approved it yet. SITA
