A RECENT landslide near Šútov in the Martin district will considerably delay the completion of the D1 highway, the Pravda daily wrote in its May 7 issue.

A RECENT landslide near Šútov in the Martin district will considerably delay the completion of the D1 highway, the Pravda daily wrote in its May 7 issue.

While the four-lane road between Bratislava and Košice was due to be completed in 2019 according to the original plans, the road is currently not expected to be completed until 2020 or 2021. The section near Martin should have been the last stretch to be completed, together with the Višňové tunnel near Žilina.

Currently, when travelling from Bratislava to Košice, the highway ends in Žilina, resulting in frequent traffic jams. In the future, the bottleneck is expected to move to Martin, which is part of the Turany – Hubová section of the highway.
