The new, approximately three-km-long bridge over the Danube River, part of the D4/R7 Bratislava bypass needs a name. The Transport Ministry has just launched a poll on social networks inviting people to vote for any of the eight shortlisted names.

“As I promised, you can vote for the final name of the new bridge,” Transport Minister Andrej Doležal (Sme Rodina) announced on July 27.

Between Monday and Thursday the potential names will be subject to voting in a quarter-final round. The winners of this round will advance to the semi-final round lasting the whole of next week. Only then, in the final round, will the name of the bridge be decided upon.
