Preparation of PPP projects lag behind, states Transport Ministry

The Transport Ministry is not proceeding in line with deadlines set for implementation of three highway tenders through public-private partnership (PPP) projects and selection of bidders, the SITA newswire wrote. Despite this, the ministry does not expect to make any changes to its plan to open the D1 highway between Bratislava and Košice, excluding tunnel sections, and the R1 dual carriageway, by 2010. Meeting this deadline may be problematic if the start of construction work within the third PPP package is postponed until the first quarter of 2009, according to the Director-General of the National Highway Company (NDS), Igor Choma. The cabinet took note of a paper on preparation and construction of highways and dual carriageways, their financial coverage and related legislative measures at its Wednesday session.
