More road blockades are likely after Slovakia’s state motorway company NDS announced it will not tender for missing sections of the D3 motorway this year.
Residents of some towns have blocked sections of roads this year urging the government to speed construction of the D3 to help; boost their local economies, according to Slovakian media.
The missing sections are Zilina, Brodno - Kysucke Nove Mesto and Kysucke Nove Mesto - Oscadnica.
The only section of the D3 motorway nearing completion is the 4.2km Zilina, Strazov - Zilina, Brodno stretch being built by the consortium of SMS, Hochtief and Eurovia at a cost €255 million. It is set to open in November.
