THE WINNERS of the 2010 Construction of the Year competition were announced on October 7, 2010, in the 16th year of this national contest for the best construction projects. Unlike in previous years, the main prize was shared by two projects in 2010: the Eurovea complex in downtown Bratislava and a 5-km stretch of the D1 highway from Sverepec to Vrtižer which includes an elevated section over the town of Považská Bystrica. In addition to these two top-prize winners, the Elesko winery near Modra was also nominated for the main prize.
