A new plan from Slovakia’s Ministry for Transport and Construction will see upgrade work being carried out to 180km of major roads and 60 or more bridges. A finance package of €200 million has been secured for the work, which will be carried out over the next 36 months. This programme of works is being financed by the OP Integrated Infrastructure (OPII) fund.
At present, 122km of dual carriageways and motorways are under construction in Slovakia according to the state-owned road firm NDS. Completion of the D1 route has been prioritised.
