Žilina region gained a building permit for the construction of the 3.8-kilometre long circuit last year.

“The aim is that first cyclists and roller-skaters could use it in summer,” said Erika Jurinová, governor of the region, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

400 kilometres of the cycling route planned

The construction should take six months. The cycling route at Waterworks is popular among locals; last year more than 116,000 travelled along the cycle-crossing. The left-riverbank cycling route will lead from the road bridge above the Váh river and in Žilina, it will be connected to the road at Waterworks.

The new cycling route will be a part of Vážska cyklomagistrála, the idea of which is to build a cycling route near the Váh river from its confluence with the Danube near Komárno to the stream of Čierny Váh. If this becomes a reality, the cycling route would be 400 kilometres long and it would cross five regions.
