PROJECTS REDESIGNING THE FACE OF THE COUNTRY

New town to spring up near Nitra

FOUR hundred and thirty-five hectares of land between the Nitra river and northern bypass will be developed over the next 10 to 40 years into Párovské Lúky, a new "town" that will house 30,000-35,000 inhabitants, the SITA newswire wrote.

FOUR hundred and thirty-five hectares of land between the Nitra river and northern bypass will be developed over the next 10 to 40 years into Párovské Lúky, a new "town" that will house 30,000-35,000 inhabitants, the SITA newswire wrote.

The "town" will be connected to Nitra with new road bridges. The vast majority of houses will be low-rises, with four to six storeys, but there will be several high-rise buildings as well. There will also be squares, shops, services, and a park.

Nitra intends to use mainly private sector funds to finance the project. The current challenge is that a large part of the area is still privately owned by people who are not happy about the plans.
