The National Highway Company (NDS) launched public procurement of the D1 / D4 junction on Friday.
Minister of Transport Andrej Doležal (nominee of We are a Family) informed about it on the social network.
“From the point of view of the Ministry of Transport, this topic is closed, as the money for this purpose has already been released from the Ministry of Finance (MF) of the Slovak Republic, and we consider this to be the most important,” Doležal noted. The release of funds for this project was marked by disagreements between the transport and finance ministries.
According to Doležal, the public procurement will start on Friday and the completion date will depend on the future contractor. “The speed of completion will be one of the criteria of the competition,” he indicated.
The D1 / D4 junction is also important from the point of view of the zero Bratislava bypass D4 / R7. At the end of August, Doležal explained that the construction itself should take about three years. The intersection should be built during full operation of the two highways. According to him, D1 will have to rise “alive”.
