The first 30 kilometres of the long-awaited Bratislava ring road can now be used by drivers.
The Ketelec – Dunajská Lužná – Šamorín – Holice section of the R7 express dual-carriageway and the Ketelec – Rovinka stretch of the D4 bypass were opened on July 19, 2020. This stretch is nearly a half of the planned 59-kilometre ring road that is being built by the D4R7 Construction company within the public-private partnership (PPP) project.
Originally, the stretch was expected to open earlier this year, around late March or early April according to transport minister Árpád Érsek (Most-Híd). The constructor explained the delay with the late approval of necessary building permissions.
