Highway between Bratislava and Košice in 2012 at the earliest

Slovakia's most populous cities, Bratislava and Košice, will be connected on the D1 highway by 2012 at the earliest, Igor Choma, Director General of the National Highway Company (NDS), said on the TA3 news show Topic of the Day. That date could be pushed back even further, to 2013, due to the complicated nature of the construction, Choma warned.

The Bratislava to Žilina stretch of the D1 highway will be open by 2010. And within two years, the Sverepec-Vrtizer stretch, which is the last unfinished part before Žilina, should be completed then, as should the Trnava to Banská Bystrica section, the SITA newswire wrote.

Construction to widen the very busy D1 highway between Bratislava and Trnava to six lanes should be launched in 2009, or in 2010 at the latest, Choma said. It may last about 18 months, he estimated. SITA
