Construction of the 3.3km Studenec-Behárovce stretch of the D1 highway leading up to the Branisko Tunnel, in the Levoča district of eastern Slovakia, should cost Sk794.3 million (€26.4 million) excluding VAT, according to the National Highway Company (NDS). The highway company plans to announce a tender for construction of the stretch at the end of September this year. The project will be co-financed by the European Union Cohesion Fund, the NDS said in a preliminary announcement in the Official Journal of the European Union. Construction work should start in July 2009 and be completed by November 2011.
The NDS also plans to announce a competition for construction of a 5.2 km-long stretch of the D1 between Jablonov and Studenec at the beginning of March, 2009. The project should start in November 2009 and be completed within three years. SITA
