The tunnel should be finished at the turn of 2015 and 2016, while the whole section should be finished by beginning 2018 and it should cost €427 million without VAT; the contribution for the EU funds amounts to more than €375.8 million. Doprastav CEO Juraj Androvič told the SITA newswire that the building of the tunnel will be demanding because of specific clay subsoil in the cadastre of the Žilina borough of Bánová.
