Reader feedback: Connecting major cities

Re: Reader Feedback, Do not Spoil Slovakia, Sept. 15-21, Vol 9, No36

Slovakia does have a need for better roads - not for the tourists, but for the Slovaks who have to use these roads every day. Currently, a highway is being built from Bratislava, over Banská Bystrica, to Košice.

This new highway, along with the existing ones from Bratislava to Trenčín, and from Martin to Košice (if I remember correctly), should already make a vast improvement. Slovakia doesn't really have that many major cities, and it should be possible to connect them all with just 3 or 4 highways. That way the situation can improve greatly without causing too much damage to Slovakia's landscape.
