Construction companies asked to bid on D1 highway in Ružomberok

Slovakia’s National Highway Company (NDS) has asked commercial construction companies to bid on a tender for construction of another stretch of the D1 motorway, between Hubová and Ivachnová near Ružomberok, the TASR newswire reported. "The fifth tender for the D1 stretches that were originally included in the first PPP project package attests to the correctness of our decision not to continue with the over-priced orders of (former Prime Minister Robert) Fico's government," said Ján Figeľ, the Minister of Transport, Construction and Regional Development on October 10 in announcing the tender.

Ružomberok will particularly benefit from this new stretch of highway, 15km long, including a 2km long Čebrať tunnel that will reduce cross-town traffic.

The cost of the project, co-financed with EU funds, is €465.7 million excluding VAT.
