Schuster supports southern highway

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster agrees with recent proposals for the building of a highway through southern Slovakia to connect the capital Bratislava to Košice, the second largest town in Slovakia.

Schuster, visiting Rožňava, said that the highway could be financed from the EU cohesion fund, adding that commissar for the EU enlargement Gunter Verheugen and head of the European Commission's delegates in Slovakia Eric van der Linden agree with this idea.

A northern highway is under construction but misses areas of acute unemployment in the south of the country. Schuster believes that building the southern highway could help to keep jobs in the area.
