Four sections of the R1 highway totaling nearly 53 kilometres in length are set to be built via public-private partnership (PPP) projects, it was reported on December 17. The document launching the tender for the construction of these sections (referred to as the second package of PPP projects) was published recently by the construction ministry.
The second PPP package includes the construction of the following sections: Nitra-Selenec, Selenec-Beladice, Beladice-Tekovské Nemce (all in Nitra region), and the Banská Bystrica northern bypass. Bids to carry out construction work on the R1 highway sections must be posted by February 8, 2008. The tender for the first PPP package was announced by the National Highway Company (NDS) on November 15. The third PPP package is due to be announced in three-six months. TASR
