Since December 5, drivers can use the new stretch of the D1 highway, which is the main transport and town-planing corridor Bratislava - Trnava - Trenčín - Žilina - Ružomberok - Poprad - Prešov - Košice.

The second stretch of D1 Mengusovce - Jánovce is 6.23 kms long, its contractual price is almost Sk2.62 billion including VAT. It is connected to the third stretch, Mengusovce - Jánovce, which is 11.62 kms long. The main importance of this highway stretch is that it bypasses the town of Poprad, especially with transit transport, and also the stretch between municipalities of Jánovce - Hozelec, where many accidents happen.
