The R1 expressway Nitra-Tekovské Nemce and the Banská Bystrica northern bypass is the first PPP project of such a large extent in Slovakia's history. The construction work was carried out via the contractor, which provided the financing and construction work and will operate and maintain the four sections for 30 years.

A public event featuring cultural and educational programmes has been prepared by Granvia Construction for people from Banská Bystrica who want to celebrate the opening on Friday.
