The D4R7 Construction company will open almost all the remaining sections of the D4 highway and the R7 express dual-carriageway in Bratislava and its surroundings on Sunday, September 26.

“The handover of the segments in regards to large infrastructure projects, such as the Bratislava ring road, is a standard process,” the company said earlier this week, as quoted by the SITA newswire. “We expect everything to be finished by September 26, 2021, and we can assure everyone that we will be ready to open the roads.”

Awaiting permits

The missing segments of the D4 and R7 roads, measuring a total of 13 km in length, will open by the end of this week if the developer holds to its word. The stretches of the D4 under construction include the segments between intersections Bratislava, Jarovce - Petržalka (2.2 km) - Bratislava, South (originally known as Ketelec; 4.3 km), including a three-kilometre segment with Lužný Bridge crossing the Danube.
