Slovak Highway Company may use EU funds for R1 highway

Slovakia’s National Highway Company (NDS) plans to announce tenders on June 17 for construction of three sections of the R1 dual carriageway, namely from west Nitra to Selenec, Selenec to Beladice and Beladice to Tekovské Nemce using EU funds, the SITA newswire reported.

Slovakia’s National Highway Company (NDS) plans to announce tenders on June 17 for construction of three sections of the R1 dual carriageway, namely from west Nitra to Selenec, Selenec to Beladice and Beladice to Tekovské Nemce using EU funds, the SITA newswire reported.

These are sections that were expected to be built and operated from private sources within the second package of the public-private partnership (PPP) projects, SITA said.

According to unofficial information made available to SITA, this is an effort to show that construction of dual carriageway sections through traditional procurement could be cheaper than PPP projects with private funding, using public funds for construction and operation of the roads.

Past problems in securing finances for construction of the R1 sections from private sources has delayed the start of construction and has increased costs. The NDS announced its intention to announce a tender for construction of the three R1 sections from public funds in a preliminary announcement in the EU Official Journal but it has not yet published the estimated price of the construction, SITA wrote.
